Working with the emotions and condition of the client is especially important when dealing with psychological problems. The peculiarity of solving psychological problems is that they are more subjective, more often have not an objective, but a psychological background, and working with emotions and the human condition, as well as working with the attitude to the problem, often comes to the fore here.

Created a problem, removed the problem - cured!

There is a fact - negative emotions go away (at least for a while), it becomes easier for a person...
