"It is essential in this day and age, that serious consideration be given to those cases of neurotic disorder which arise because of the problems which exist between people."

Psychotherapy is essentially the listening to, and the talking with clients whose problems and anxieties have become too great a burden to cope with alone. Its aim is to help the troubled individual to understand and to resolve their predicament.

Most therapy which is carried out is brief, which can mean anything from one to twenty-five sessions. A training course should teach a therapist to work briefly.
