Sadly, mental health is much neglected and over-shadowed by the emphasis on physical health
in the pursuit of youthfulness and longevity. As a result, many people are anxious, depressed,
suffer phobias, avoid change, seek isolation, self medicate for sleeplessness, irritability and
sadness, model maladaptive behaviors for their children and most seriously deny themselves
Psychotherapy offers clients the opportunity to resolve problems associated with mental ill health
as well as enchance the psychological lives of stable clients who seek self-insight and wish to
embark on a journey of self discovery. The latter approach is referred to as positive psychology
which is the enhancement and personal growth of psychologically well-adapted persons.
