Life today is complex, hectic and riddled with uncertainty with most of us having to face significant pressures in our daily lives and with "change" being a constant part of life. When we reach crisis point, for whatever reason, whether it is the cumulative effects of many things or a major crisis, where do we turn?
"Most of the time, we find ways of dealing with such problems in living by talking to family, friends, neighbors, priests or our family doctor. But occasionally their advice is not sufficient, or we are too embarrassed or ashamed to tell them what is bothering us, or we just don't have an appropriate person to turn to." Quote By John McLeod
