English Child Psychiatric and Psychological Services

1st Step Kokoro no Clinic is dedicated to serving those who may require mental heath services, including the international community in Japan. We have an English speaking Psychiatrist and Clinical Psychologist available to support clients that require bilingual services. Various services are available depending on the needs of each client such as medication, counseling, assessment, early intervention and parent support.

Psychiatric Services

The psychiatrist, Dr. Masahiro Suzuki, provides medical psychiatric treatments for children through adults of any age. He is able to provide treatment to mental heath disorders such as Depression or other Mood Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD), Psychosis, and Addiction Disorders. Dr. Suzuki is able to provide various treatments including medication. 

Psychiatric Consultation is available on Wednesdays 9:30-19:00 and Thursdays 9:30-19:00. To make an appointment in Japanese, please call 03-6384-2515 (Wednesday, Thursday or Friday). To make an appointment in English, please email us at  info@1st-step.org

For your appointment, please bring your health insurance card. We accept Japanese Medical Insurance (Kokumin Kenko Hoken or Shakai Hoken) for psychiatric services. A reservation fee of 10,000 yen will apply for first time appointments. For subsequent consultations, a reservation fee of 3000 yen will apply for any requests longer than the standard consultation time. Currently, only cash payment is available.

Consultation and Assessment for Children (Clinical Psychologist)

  • Consultation for children will include areas of overall development, which may include behavioral, social or academic issues. We also offer consultation to children and families who are from multi cultural backgrounds.
  • A typical assessment consists of a combination of interviews with the individual child, parents and teachers, administration of an intelligence test and school observation. Other additional questionnaires may be included depending on the individual case. A feedback session and assessment report with recommendations will also be included in the package. If the child is bilingual and assessment/report is required in English and Japanese, this is also available with additional fees.
  • Early intervention is available to children who may require behavioral, cognitive or social skills training. A social skills group program may be offered depending on the number of members that may require these services.
