Aspiration of B-class Logotherapists
Working as an employment counsellor does not only help others but also facilitate my growth. Logotherapy is very helpful when I deal with anyone of any type. I hope I could help them to live more meaningful and better life. I, as a man with advanced age, will try to live a better life using what I learned about Logotherapy till living out my days.

My antenna of conscience which remained unawake and unrealized has finally started working when 9 years passed since I started learning Logotherapy, catching question to me from life for the present time and situation. When I work as a nurse, I have become seeing patients’ problems in terms of meaning. I will continue to learn Logotherapy for me to jump towards meaning and, as a nurse, to help patients in finding meaning.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2011.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2014
Shepherded by Frankl’s phrase, “It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us,” I attended Mrs. Katsuta’s Logotherapy Seminar in 2007. At the beginning, I was occasionally obsessed with my arbitrary idea that I “must” find meaning. Then I gradually came to realize that it is me who decide how to live and what to choose in the given circumstances. I am free in that way. Now I don’t think “I must find meaning” but “I can find meaning…maybe.” Frankl’s phrases always encourage me, though my favorite phrase varies in each case. Believing that I can receive necessary message for present time and situation, I will continue to live with my eyes directed towards others.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2011.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2014
I clearly remember even now that I was excited and deeply moved when I attended Logotherapy Seminar for the first time in Sendai in 2006. When I met Frankl’s philosophy, I thought I could finally find what I had been seeking for long. I will continue to learn Logotherapy and practice what I learn, playing my role to convey something to others..Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2011.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2014
I believe that even young adults who cannot relate with outside world or cannot work in the society from fear and anxiety are thirsting for doing meaningful things in the deep recesses of their mind. Logotherapy teaches supporters like me how to relate with them to make them aware of their possibilities. I will continue learning Logotherapy and standing by them to help more of them find more meaning of their own life as possible.

I was certified as B-class Logotherapist (No.14, the second term). I am proud that Mrs. Katsuta highly evaluated my presentations at the supervision course workshops and the 5th Logotherapist Lecture Meeting. I became psychiatrist 23 years ago, and my duties have been increasing since then. I am working not only clinician, but also as a preceptor, a researcher and a mother. In these days, I have to work also as a manager and a medical association member, which require me to burden heavy responsibility and to show others right attitude. My motto is “to work for justice faithfully and modestly by stealth and never to brag about it” as shown in Talmud.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2008.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2013
In the Japanese industry, very few companies have adopted such a way of thinking as Logotherapy does. Yet I believe that Logotherapeutic way of thinking will help people much as guidelines when people work with someone or something. I myself will place importance on meaning of each moment to help customer companies and their workers.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2008.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2011
I am pleased that my certification number for B-class Logotherapy is 10. Logotherapy helps me as an anchorage when I work as a volunteer at a telephone counseling center to prevent suicides and an NPO to assist handicapped person in entering the work force. I would help especially those who cannot find meaning of their life often found in e-mail counseling and among handicapped person in high brain function at the NPO to revitalize their logos.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2008.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2011
When working with mentally disabled persons everyday, I often encounter with creative ability of imaging among them. It’s that time when Logotherapy suggests me the correct direction specifically about my question on how they can utilize their own unique ability. I will practice Logotherapy in my daily relationship with clients.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2008.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2011
Flankl’s thought will continue to be a loadstar for my life. Although I cannot practice Logotherapy for therapy or medicine at a clinical scene, I will contribute to promotion of Logotherapy by positioning Frankl’s worldview and human view as a background of Logotherapy in the context of eastern and western history of thoughts, and then rediscovering historical significance of Logotherapy today.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2004.

Now in my mid-fifties, I sometimes doubt myself suffering from pre-senile depression. Logotherapy tells me that spiritual dimension can stand apart from physical and psychological dimensions, that we can choose meaningful attitude, and that we are questioned every moment. When I think I am questioned now at this very moment, my cloud of depression is cleared and I feel sunlight instead. I hope I could help clients to find their sunlight.Certified as C-class Logotherapist in 2004.Certified as B-class Logotherapist in 2008.
