Ψ  - PSI's Professionals

PSI counselors are available in-person and online, depending on your needs! We can support you in-person in Bangkok or from around the region!


PSI has been serving Bangkok's expatriate and local communities since 2002.  Each of our professionals has an advanced degree and experience in their field. We maintain international standards of professional competence and conduct. All of our professional services are confidential. We understand the importance of discretion when providing counseling services in a small community like the Bangkok expatriate community.
We're expatriates and live abroad ourselves.  So, in addition to our professional expertise, we understand the experience of living and working in a foreign country. We've helped many clients with the disorientation of relocation and adjustment. We're also very familiar with the life, work, and family pressures that come up for expatriates residing in the Land of Smiles. Whether you're here short-term, or have been here for decades, PSI is ready to help.  PSI also offers local expertise trained to western standards.  We're pleased to offer our services in English, Thai, or French.
