Psychological Development and Wellbeing concern the psychological state that every person feels and experiences during the different phases of the life cycle.

According to the definition given by the World Health Organization (1946) "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".

However, Health and Wellbeing are dynamic states, always in need of continuous re-definition, and they can vary from person to person and in different times of life.

In any determined phave of life, external or internal situations can contribute to changes that one can find it difficult to cope with. 

This is the time to seek for help and to start promoting a change, before the current situation becomes too difficult and impacts on other aspects of life.

The role of a clinical psychologist and psychoanalytic psychotherapist is to assess the client's psychological experience in order to get to a broader understanding and eventually offer an appropriate treatment.

Enquiries about psychoanalysis are welcome for those interested in this form of treatment and are looking for a deeper approach to their recurrent struggles in life.
