When therapy can help

People pursue counselling and psychotherapy for many different reasons. Some people seek help in dealing with a major life event such as divorce, bereavement or redundancy. Others can seek help with the psychological effects of abuse. Many people seek help with emotional problems such as generalised anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, lack of motivation or feelings of being out of touch with the world in general.
