i know yokohama has SHIP, an ngo which mostly does hangout type stuff, but they probably know someone
( re: this post )
!!!!! anon, thank you!! i already know of SHIPにじいろキャビン
and have no idea why i didn’t even think of them at the time of answering the other ask… just further proof that i need more sleep, i guess… *sigh*
anyway, as you said, SHIP is an NPO that runs the only LGBTQIA community center that i know of in Yokohama and hosts an assortment of monthly LGBTQIA events. i went to one event and checked out their community center once, but then work and finances got hectic and i haven’t been back since, sadly…. they seemed like good people, though.
upon getting this ask, i immediately thought about dropping by there after work sometime to ask about counseling services, but then i went to their website and found that they already have a page setup with information about counseling…! and it seems that they offer a few types of counseling, including: over-the-phone counseling, private 1-on-1 counseling with a clinical psychologist and drop-ins to ask (non-professional) advice. i would guess that all of their in-house counseling is in Japanese, but don’t know for sure.
….ahhhhh, i really hope the original anon comes back and sees this post. will go back and edit this into the original post, though. thanks again, anon.
