One of the easier ways to feel really down is to believe that bad events are personal, permanent and global. You can learn to apply the principles of positive psychology, using emotional management skills. You can learn to manage your stress and recover from trauma.

The provision of psychotherapy is focused on resolving your issues or concerns through the development of resilience and effective coping skills. This may include clarifying and evaluating your core beliefs about your relationship to yourself, others and the world in general.
