For the first time (in many years of therapy) I now look forward to getting help

5 50 Counselling • Paid: ฿277373

Chawisa Chartsuwan at Bangkok Counselling helped me beyond compare. I'm a combat veteran with severe PTSD. While living in Thailand, and doing volunteer work for a Thai NGO, I began having PTSD related problems. I researched the therapist extensively because I could not afford to get help unless it was equal to or better therapy than I could get in the USA. I also needed a therapist who is fluent in English.

I couldn't have found a better therapist, than Chawisa Chartsuwan, anywhere on earth. I continued in therapy there for several years and gained considerable skills to cope with PTSD (and related symptoms). I was even able to make a return therapeutic re-exposure trip to Vietnam because of the therapy I had received. For the first time (in many years of therapy) I now look forward to getting help at Bangkok Counselling Service again when I return to Thailand (after the Covid-19 Pandemic). My hope is that they have appointments available.

I highly recommend therapy at Bangkok Counseling Services.

Very supportive he was interested in my experience and actually listened

5 50 Counselling • Paid: ฿2460

I contacted the Bangkok Counselling Service to get help to address some repeating behaviour I want to stop. It's overthinking things to the point where I believe disaster will happen. I met with Mr Don who was very supportive he was interested in my experience and actually listened. I'm not sure anyone has ever done that before. On leaving I noticed the clinic was private yet homely and near to the Skytrain station. I have signed up for 6 more sessions.
