At some point in their lives most people face challenges that they cannot overcome alone. Finding support from someone outside their own circle, such as a psychotherapist, helps them understand the situation better and take the necessary steps to change something. Because psychotherapy–that's the good news–works. Psychotherapy can noticeably and significantly improve general well-being, physical and mental health, and even the quality of relationships. But no matter what the issues are, of particular importance to a successful therapy is the special relationship with the therapist–an atmosphere characterized by a sense of being safe and accepted.
