At Institute for Practical Life, we can provide you with an intervention to optimize positive mental health by addressing determinants of positive mental health before a specific mental health problem becomes debilitating, such as depression, anxiety, addictions or anger.

Psychotherapy can help you to achieve a state of successful performance of a mental function, leading to you being able to engage in productive activities, fulfilling relationships with other people, and the ability to adapt to change and to cope with adversity in healthy ways.

Experiencing occasional anxiety and depression is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense and excessive worries and people with depression stop enjoying life.
