Consultations give patients an opportunity to introduce the therapist to the experienced difficulties. Consultations help to both formulate the problem and determine further course of action. Therapy is the next step and involves systematically working through issues, such as:

*  relationship & interpersonal problems

*  anxiety and depression

*  troublesome emotions, behaviours or bodily symptoms

*  stress (for example, at work or school)

*  life crises and difficult personal dilemmas

*  traumatic experiences
