Problems that counselling and psychotherapy can help
The following are just some of the problems that people can experience and that can be helped by counselling and psychotherapy. Please note that these are only thumbnail descriptions of some quite common problems, how they can develop and how they can impact on a person’s life. There are, of course, many, many more problems that can be helped by counselling and psychotherapy. In reality, the development, impact and treatment of each person’s problem are likely to be more complex than is conveyed here, with a convergence of many other contributing factors. Also, very often, particular problems exist together with others. For example, someone who is living in an abusive or distressing relationship may be experiencing continuously unhealthy levels of anxiety and low mood and may also be self-medicating with alcohol.
