There’s a common notion that therapists, counselors and the like have tools to equip people that can help them cope with everyday life. While it’s true there are practical steps such as cognitive behavioral therapy, breathing exercises, and mindfulness that can help, it may not be the best solution in all situations.
There’s a theory in psychoanalysis that every behavior as a cause. So the difficult situations that one goes through in life may be a result of their own, repeated patterns of behavior. In some cases, the best psychotherapy is not equipping people with tools to deal with everyday situations, as much as gently pointing out to their attention their patterns of behaviors that may be leading them to their situation.
By being aware of the pattern, people then will be more able to change it.
