Dan Boyd holds four graduate degrees in counseling or counseling related fields. He is the founder of Psychological Services International in Bangkok, Thailand, and is Thailand's senior practicing expatriate counselor. Having extensive U.S. training, Dan holds advanced degrees from the University of the State of New York and Loyola University in Maryland. He has been counseling for over thirty years, and has been in Thailand for more than twenty-five years. He is well equipped to handle issues specific to expatriate life and the Thai cultural context.
Dan's areas of specialization include mood disorders: depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks; drug and alcohol abuse and addictions; relationship counseling; cross-cultural issues; BPD; and adolescents. He is also available for supervision of other mental health professionals. The LGBT community is warmly welcomed. Dan does not work with pre-adolescent children, but can refer you to a colleague.
Utilizing an eclectic, client-centered counseling style, Dan borrows primarily from cognitive-behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy. For relationship therapy, the evidence-based model of Gottman is used. Dan is not an aggressive counselor and believes in allowing each client to establish his or her own pace. Counseling sessions last fifty minutes and usually feel like an intimate conversation with a good friend.
Skype sessions are available, though having one or two initial face-to-face sessions is generally preferable before transitioning to Skype. If you are interested, please email for more details.
