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:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
