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.

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!"

Deep, Zhengy. 

I think Dr. Marco is a psychologist, if he is still around and you want a molester who masquerades as a psychologist 

Idk if you target that to me, It’s very easy to spot somebody that has zero understanding of psychology. And Im legally registered in my home country. Can only have the psychologist title when reached master in any specialisation in the field of psychology.

 

well I offered a hand for free if it’s not heavy. I’m PhD in zju, I just rarely come by, neither post anything I’m hanging onto the French forum bonjourchine.com . 

 

Anyway, y’all have a good day.
