Center for International Psychological ServicesㅣPhilosophy

“For the past decades, I have encountered people who experienced suffering.

Children and teenagers, women, and men, the rich and the poor, the young and the aged, blue-collared and white-collared, Christians, Buddhists and Muslims….

They taught me one very precious lesson; that is, as human beings, everyone suffers from their own limitations and that I am not an exception.

This lesson has become the foundation of the Tree Group’s psychological services,

and we believe that it is our calling to help people relieved from their pain and suffering with advanced psychological knowledge and treatment.”
