We live in a very demanding society, and there are many people who sooner or later decide to go to psychological therapy to overcome some problem that interferes with their well-being. Unfortunately, there is still some prejudice when it comes to going to the psychologist.

However, attending psychotherapy sessions does not imply that a person is weak. These sessions are key to learning new psychological tools, so they can help us improve our quality of life and well-being and, ultimately, become more mentally resilient.
