This may be resultant on relationship or family problems, anxiety, bereavement and loss, sudden illness or loss of employment, divorce,low self-esteem, cultural issues, trauma (either as adults or in our childhood) and post traumatic stress.

We may need to seek the support of another person to help us to face these difficulties and integrate them into our lives.

This is what psychotherapy is about.
