Need a foreign psychologist

Question

Hello! I know there was the same topic going around in 2015, but back then there wasn't any psychologist. So I'm asking if somehow there is now someone who knows where to find a good psychologist in Hangzhou? Or is, even better. 

Thanks

Your best bet is a foreign owned hospital in sh but prepare to dish out quite a lot if money because there is still quite a stigma of using one in China.

If it's a serious issue - I'd follow san's advice and head to SH. Another option would be online sessions via skype chat. Keep your head up. One of my favorite quotes when it gets rough : 

"This too shall pass. It might pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass."

Living in China will slowly drive you insane, so it is good to leave China periodically to reset your mind.

Untill the moment is there that that doesn't work anymore haha.

While living in China comes with excitement and great interest, it can cause stress. The stress of loneliness, or being an outsider. Of not being able to communicate well with the people. To be confounded on how the people do things, which is outside the norm of how your culture would do it. It is a very different life that your fellows have in your home country, and you quickly find that the people back home usually do not care about your life and adventures, and consequently you overseas will sometimes pine for the hum drum existence of living in your country, working a job, eating your own food and living the life of everyone else. 

A lot goes through the mind. Many people take to alcohol and drugs. With drinking, at least in my experience, I get to take my brain and put it on a shelf and live on an alternate reality for several hours. Beer and liquor is good for this. Or running away to extravagance. Or food intake, of eating the wrong kinds of food. Or sex or whatever. Vices that manifest themselves as a coping mechanism for problems and difficulties.

Seen a lot of drunk foreigners here. I am one of them, but will try this year to stop this habit because it is destructive and does not work, and a waste of money. This will probably be my last year in China (probably the 2018-19 season) It was fun and thanks for the fish. But where you go, there you are and you cannot run from yourself. I run faster than Usain Bolt to escape and made my life here, but problems run faster than a bullet. 

In the immortal words of the late Frank Sinatra "You gotta start living baby, because dying is a pain in the ass!"

    • Hello, Just thought I would leave this info here about my friend's beauty salon. It's called t-mei beauty salon . The beauty salon is based on the 7th floor, 1st building of GuoDu Development Plaza, No 182, Chao Hui Road, Hangzhou. Nearest metro station is West Lake Cultural Square (about 200 meters away). The main hairdresser is called Julia - has been working in the industry for nearly a decade, worked in London for some time, won a bunch of awards. She is a local, but speaks English. They  do haircuts, style and color hair, do hair-nourishment, makeup, manicures, eye-lashes... They also have a pool table and serve some really good coffee, too :)  If you find yourself in need of a good hairdresser, t-mei beauty salon is an excellent choice and I hope you visit them soon :) Phone number: 13208005020
    • omg, yes! The constant turning a bedroom into something else to make it fit or vice versa. It's really obvious in those apartments where there wouldn't be a wall ends up having a half-ass built slide in doors/blankets to cover an area up, and they still want like 6500 cause it has that extra bed room. haha. 
    • What blue is saying is 100% truth.. They are like fake.  Best to bring a Chinese friend with you because they are going to Rip you off. I will also add to  blue his points the most scam they all use.  For example you will say you want a 2 bed room apartment with a separate living room ( normal for us right) then they will bring you to many crappy places with no living room or with 1 bedroom turned into a living room.. Wjen they get you all tired up they will show you what you want but the price is much much more expensive.  They hope u will take it because you are all messed up from all the stress and going trough the crappy apartments... Keep that in mind :p
    • Most of the online websites all post fake pictures. Me and my wife go through this shit all the time and its annoying. For the most part we use ganji wang. Put in all the details from the top, it gives you the results, see an apartment we like, we give the realtor a call, and they reply in one of three ways.  1. That apartment is gone, we have some that look like that (they RARELY do, most are just shit holes) 2. Those pictures are fake, but we have some that look like that. 3. That apartment is still available but the actual price on it is ....and they bump it up a few thousand.  imo, the easiest way is still finding a real estate agent, let them get an idea of what you are looking for and then they will take you to several apartments.
