When it comes to preserving health, it is not enough to only take care of our physical body. Our soul can also be affected.
The idea of psychotherapy is that a patient gets to know his/her self better and learns to understand the causes of an emotional imbalance or why he/she might feel overwhelmed by a stressful situation. Once the source becomes apparent, one can face emotional challenging situations much easier.
When facing a crises, it sometimes might also make sense to reach out for help. Typical situations that require an enormous amount of personal adaptation can be the loss of a family member or a pregnancy, but also changes in ones day-to-day life such as moving to a foreign country, changing jobs or the separation of a longterm life partner can be difficult to handle alone.
Many people have difficulties to accept help in such situations, but it is worth to at least give it a try!
