Psychologists are licensed professionals trained to evaluate and assist people with a variety of mental health issues in a private and confidential setting. Psychotherapy is not easily described in general statements. It depends on the personality of both psychologist and client and the particular problems that the client presents. There are a variety of useful methods available to address different issues. Psychotherapy calls for an active and collaborative effort involving both psychologist and client. Although the discussion of problem issues might sometimes be difficult, therapy often achieves solutions to specific problems, significant reductions in feelings of distress, and more satisfying relationships.
