Welcome to Ikegami Mental Health Clinic.

Despite coronavirus (COVID-19), we are a medical facility and remain open to serve our patients.

It is a troubling time for all. So much uncertainly and fear. If you are experiencing anxiety or sleeplessness or other psychological symptoms, feel free to call for an appointment at 06-6391-1556 during our clinic hours or email Sako, the pharmacist, at pharmd (at) psyche.clinic 24/7.
To protect everyone from infection, we do ask that if you have had a fever or are experiencing any cold-like symptoms (coughing, sore throat, difficulty breathing, taste and smell disturbances.), to please call before coming to the clinic.


We are a mental health clinic and place a strong focus on counseling (talk) therapy.

 

Dr. Tsukasa Ikegami, MD, the clinic director, is a certified Jungian psychiatrist who trained at the renowned CG Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, getting his diploma after only four years.
See below for more details on his education and training.

While Dr. Ikegami does speak English quite well, free interpretation services between Japanese and English can be arranged by appointment. Please place a request when you reserve. Use the form below to contact us.

Our clinic is a 10-12 minute walk from the Shin-Osaka bullet train station (go out the North exit and just head north) OR
Just 1 minute from the #2 North exit of Higashi-Mikuni station on the Midosuji subway line. Head right after exiting the ticket gate, go down the stairs at the end of the hall. Do a complete about-face and turn right at the corner (it’s a real estate agency), go straight and you’ll see our sign right outside the door to our building. We’re in the building right before the Seven-Eleven on the corner. [You should be able to see a McDonald’s, Yoshinoya, and Mitsubishi UFJ ATM across the street on your left]

Welcome to Ikegami Mental Health Clinic

Highly experienced mental health professionals focused on counseling therapy.

A Little History

Dr. Tsukasa Ikegami graduated from Kyoto University in 1984 and after at training at the Department of Psychiatry at Kyoto University Hospital for several years, he became a staff psychiatrist at Sakamoto Hospital in Higashi-Osaka. There, he was responsible for the care of both acute and chronic patients with various mental illnesses, with a focus on schizophrenia. 


Having been taken with dynamic psychotherapy from early on in his career, he began training analysis with Dr. Takao Oda who was the first psychiatrist in Japan to become a Jungian psychoanalyst. After several years of analysis, Dr. Ikegami went abroad to study at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich Switzerland. 

He spent many hours in training analysis with various Jungian analysts in Switzerland and received supervision of cases undertaken during the training program. Dr. Ikegami received his diploma and returned to Japan where he began his counseling-based practice in Ashiya, Japan in 2002.  

Fast-forward 17 years, and Dr. Ikegami became the director of the renamed Hirai-Ikegami (or HI for short) Clinic in April, 2018. However it soon became apparent that the clinical chasm between the two doctors was too broad to ever be filled, which led to the decision to consolidate his Ashiya practice with a new clinic in Osaka where he could continue to see his patients from HI clinic. Thus, Ikegami Mental Health Clinic opened on April 1st, 2020.

Despite amazing advances in drug development, many conditions cannot be cured by pharmacotherapy alone. Communication with a highly qualified professional therapist in a safe environment may often be the best way to bolster a person’s natural coping mechanisms against stress in today’s too busy and too connected, but not really, world.
