Modern life of the West has created an extensive need for psychological consultations. Marriages and partnerships break down, causing many problems – economical settlements, responsibilities for the children, new homes and new schools. Job security is reduced, making many people ask themselves: Should I move on before the downsizing reaches me or should I retrain for other tasks? How to deal with heavy work-loads or a difficult manager? Other aspects of life also present new opportunities – should I convert to Islam, start practicing yoga, am I hetero or gay, man or woman or something else, maybe I ought to be prettier, slimmer, more intelligent and interesting? Are my sexual performances up to standard? Is the world coming to an end with extreme weather infernos following the climate changes? How do I find my way in this jungle of problems and opportunities?
Consultations are about these and many other topics.
