Counselling is a well known treatment to promote mental health and to decrease symptoms of mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety.
Depression and anxiety are common reasons for visiting a psychologist; however there are many mental health conditions that cause severe fluctuations in mood, unpleasant physical symptoms and affect relationships or work functioning. Many of these can usually be treated with counselling effectively to prevent deterioration in general health, social functioning and relationships.
Life events such as the birth of a child, death of a relative, marriage and separation can cause a decrease in mental health as individuals and families become over-burdened with stress, change and the drain on resources due to these sorts of events. Most individuals recover well without counselling, but sometimes individuals become vulnerable due to excessive change, poor physical health and a sudden decrease in social supports.
