Psychotherapy helps. It provides you with tools and insights when you have difficulty dealing with life.

There has to be a tremendous amount of trust between the doctor and patient for therapy to be effective. Some of the things the patient shares are deeply personal, frightening, and they may also feel shameful. The doctor's patient relationship is strictly confidential.
