Psychological counseling is a form of help addressed to healthy people experiencing developmental crises or adaptation difficulties. It takes place in the form of several meetings whose main purpose is to identify the problem and search for ways to solve it.

Psychotherapy is a method of treatment at the choice of anxiety disorders and personality disorders, used as an auxiliary in other mental disorders. Psychotherapy has the character of planned and intentional interactions, and aims at changing behavior patterns or intrapsychic structures and processes.
