Couple and family therapy
Sometimes a certain problem may concern more than one person, which are related to each other. So, it happens that couples or entire families address a psychologist to resolve matters which affect all members. Common problems are conflicts among partners or among members of a family, communication problems, concerns about a chronically ill person in the family etc.
Group therapy is another form of therapy which offers the same benefits as individual therapy, plus one more: the sense of belonging. In therapeutic groups, all members are working towards the same goal. Common types of these groups are groups of chronically ill patients suffering from the same disease (e.g. cancer, arthritis, diabetes, chronic pain etc.).
Anxiety and phobias
Everyday life is really demanding for most people and even simple everyday tasks may be very time and energy consuming for an individual. Under those circumstances, people are often unable to deal with the burden that comes along with all these obligations and tasks, so they may turn to a mental health professional for extra help concerning their stress.
Relationships play an important role in human existence and they are a common reason why people may turn to a psychologist. Some people are interested in “working” on their relationship with their partner or a friend, while others are interested in working on a relationship with a family member.
