Q: Looking for a psychotherapist/psychologist/psychiatrist in Beijing

Can anyone point me in the direction of a psychotherapist in Beijing?  Looking for someone with reasonable rates, English speaking, and good at dealing with things like angry rumination and depression.

probably the best thing you can do is leave China to deal with these issues.

But seriously, there is a BIG stigma regarding mental heath issues!

If yours is a serious question and it's really about you, seek help immediately in any of the major hospitals that serve foreigners.  I'm not in BJ, but a quick online search should give you reliable results.  Don't put it off, man.  And don't worry about the cost.  Guaranteed it's far less expensive than in the West.  Good luck to ya.

I'm guessing that you will need a referral from a GP. There is a Global Doctors in Beijing. It is an Australian company, and their clinics usually have at least one western doctor (American, Australian, etc).  I always look for them if I am sick in China, as I prefer them over Chinese medical standards.

 

At the very least, this doctor will have studied some psychiatry at a western medical school, and should be able to refer you to someone else, if available.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
