Stress Labo counseling

Stress Labo’s counseling is characterized by taking the time to organize information, examining them objectively and multilaterally, and gaining a positive outlook for mental catharsis and life. Its features are the following three points.

1. Intelligently unravel the essence of the problem

Many clients come to Stress Labo because they are aware of their own conflicts, anxiety, and depression, but those who can understand the cause and background of their painful feelings in detail and organize them in their minds are few. It is thought that the cause and background of the client’s painful feelings are complicatedly related to the client’s life history, client’s unique values, surrounding environment and human relationships surrounding the client, daily physical condition and the presence or absence of mental illness. Therefore, we will systematically organize the information and the therapist will work with the client to deepen the understanding of the essence of the problem.

2. Comfortably encourage emotional expression

Clients are aware of conflicts, anxiety, and depression, but there are many real intentions and feelings that they only notice when they express their emotions to others. In other words, there is a big difference between the emotions that you are usually aware of and the emotions that you notice after expressing your emotions. In stress Labo counseling, the therapist encourages the client to express their candid emotions in a warm atmosphere and sufficient psychological consideration, so that it makes it easier for clients to experience both the feelings they feel and the feelings they are not usually aware of at the same time. In addition, the therapist will try to imagine the client’s psychological state and respond appropriately, and will not stimulate the client’s feelings of guilt or remorse, and will take care to express emotions comfortably and with peace of mind.

3. Restore positive feelings and bright imagination

Some of the client’s past experiences have always been successful and overcoming failures. Also, there are people around the client who have similar problems and worries. If such past successful experiences and surrounding experiences can be applied to the client’s problems, the client’s adaptability and stress tolerance will increase, and the perspective on reality will expand. In addition, by utilizing the role-playing method and experiencing the client’s emotional expression and intention expression, the client’s imagination will further expand. Through such counseling, Stress Labo can help you increase your positive image of life, turn your pessimistic outlook into a brighter one, and overcome your painful feelings.

Director: Dr.Koji Zaitsu

As a doctor, I’ve been looking for counseling for my clients at a clinic that I run as an administrator, but at the same time I’m feeling the limits as I work as a doctor. In clinic practice, one doctor concentrates on treating mental illness and performs medical treatment, but the structure may be limited.The reality is that many people come to the clinic with a wide variety of stresses that have little to do with mental illness. As I interacted with such clients, I began to feel that “if this office had specialists in other non-medical professions at the same time, it might help them understand their problems.” However, in reality, it is impossible to realize it in the medical framework, and in reality, the client has to seek out various specialists to solve the problem and consult individually. Also, for the client, it is very important for the client to understand the details of the consultation result with each expert and to understand the problem from a bird’s-eye view, but in reality it is very difficult. At Stress Labo, we emphasize simultaneous response by multiple occupations in order to eliminate the complexity of such processes and the difficulty of understanding problems.

Assistant Director: Dr.Shogo Okinaga

The changes in modern society have been remarkable, and the workplace has changed significantly, especially due to the spread of the new corona infection. The expansion of remote work, the improvement of the work environment with an awareness of infection control, and the business transformation with an awareness of the new era of corona have been greatly promoted in all industries, and the working environment and direction have changed. In addition, the mindset of working people has changed from the Showa era (1926–1989) to the Reiwa era (2001–) through the Heisei era (1989–2001), and the gap between generations has become a problem, and the number of people who are worried about communication between their subordinates and their bosses has increased rapidly in recent years. In particular, prevention of occupational accidents related to harassment and mental health has become an urgent issue for companies. At Stress Labo, we would like to develop healthcare services that are ahead of the times and expand them widely to society while facing such changes in the times.

Legal counselor: Saori Ikarashi (lawyer)

The method of dispute resolution by lawyers is not limited to proceedings. Also, proceedings are just one method of dispute resolution. In fact, many civil disputes have been settled through negotiations between the parties without proceeding to proceedings. Even if it develops into a proceeding, more than half of the cases are closed by discussions between the parties such as settlement and withdrawal of the proceedings.
Nevertheless, it is common sense that asking a lawyer is equivalent to a proceeding, so many people ask a lawyer to resolve a dispute as a last resort. However, if the relationship between the parties becomes irreparably worse, the likelihood of a dialogue solution is low. Therefore, when a legal problem arises, it is important for the client to consider how to deal with it as soon as possible in order to solve the problem.
In addition, dispute resolution by litigation is centered on monetary relief, and dispute resolution within the framework of the law does not necessarily directly lead to the resolution of the problem desired by the parties. I believe it is important to listen to the client, understand the essence of the problem, and support them in making convincing choices in order to resolve the problem. In the Stress Labo collaboration interview, it is possible to go beyond the boundaries of the law and consider problem-solving across areas, so we hope that you will make use of it. We will do our best to support problem solving by utilizing our specialized knowledge.
