Currently in Korea, the reality is that most psychiatrists practice pharmacotherapy
instead of psychotherapy. Therefore it is difficult to find a psychiatrist who specializes in psychotherapy, and even more difficult to find one who can counsel
patients in English.
But, Dr. Park has been diligently practicing psychotherapy, and he has also worked as an organizing committee member at the 16th International Congress of Psychotherapy in Seoul in 1994. The title of this event was "The Integration of Psychotherapy, East & West."
Since then he has tried to integrate Eastern and Western psychotherapy not only in
his Korean patients, but also in his foreign patients as well. From his experiences,
he has come to conclude that it is more important to understand Western culture and Eastern culture rather than speaking fluent English.
So he has been able to treat several foreigners, and there have been cases in which treatment was successful. On that note, if you are looking to receive psychotherapy in Seoul, then he believes that he will be able to help you.
