Our society is still a long way from treating mental health with the same attentiveness and care as physical health. To consult a doctor or an non-medical practitioner seems natural for us when we are physically sick, so that every day life cannot be mastered any longer.
However, if daily life can’t be accomplished because there is a persistend feeling of sorrow, stress or anxiety, and there is no chance to get out of this state alone, it is advisable to look for professional assistance as well – as indicated with physical sickness. To realise this is the first step to resort and healing. Psychotherapy can help in states of emotional difficulties like depression, anxiety, grief, problematic social relationships or problems with profound changes of living conditions.
As customized the problems we have to face and the reasons the mind is thrown out of kilter are, as varied are the therapeutic possibilities to treat the mental disorders resulting from it.
