Reasons For Consultation

What motivates people to undergo a psychotherapy?

The reasons for seeking psychological help can be many. Some people experience a soul-ache without being able to name what's wrong. They would like to get better, but sometimes do not dare to ask for help because they can not identify what's wrong. Some people do not know that they suffer from psychological symptoms. They will not have the reflex to consult a psychologist.
