The motivation for seeking therapy may be diverse and varied. It provides the opportunity for clients to explore issues created due to everyday living. This includes career or work difficulties; family and relationship dilemmas; and challenges faced in different stages of people’s lives.
Psychotherapy intends to increase clients’ awareness, promote deeper insight into their behaviour, and further a better understanding of concerns and issues. Therapy assists clients in moving from a position dominated by confusing and conflicting emotions to one that is better integrated and accepting of a wide range of feelings and experiences. A sense of appreciation for who one truly is, is achieved by facilitating an environment of trust, support, and recognition that the client is heard and understood.

Psychologists use psychological assessment in its various forms to gather information in order to assist clients in gaining insight into their own thought and behavioural patterns that may contribute to growth and development. Comprehensive psychological assessment also allows the psychologist to have a clear overview of clients’ strengths, limitations, and difficulties, which may prove useful in determining intervention strategies and treatment plans.
