People have thoughts, beliefs, feelings, physical sensations, and behaviors.  Each therapist focuses on these as it suits your needs.  By learning more about yourself you can have more ability to make choices which enrich your life and stop doing things which make you angry, confused, afraid, or sad.  Your therapist may also ask you about any physical complaints and/or illness that may affect or even cause mental and emotional issues.  Consultation (with your permission) with your doctor may be recommended in order for your therapist to know how to best help.
