Quite often, the profession of a psychologist is associated with Hollywood movies, where the client lies on the couch, talks about his problems, and the specialist nods and writes something in a notebook. Indeed, earlier sessions with a psychologist looked somewhat like this. You could spend months or even years “talking about it”.
It is the 21st century, and the situation has changed a lot.
Over the past decades, we have started to understand how the brain works. Now we know that our resentment, lack of self-confidence, procrastination, and so on are the normal working modes of the brain. See, the brain was formed during evolution, in a completely different world. Civilization changed this world very quickly but we do not evolve that fast.
Previously, psychology and neurobiology did not intersect, but now they effectively complement each other. This allows you not to waste time looking for abstract concepts such as “harmony” or “self-love”.
Thanks to modern research, there are now tools, such as Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, that allow you to quickly identify the causes of the problem and find an effective way to solve them.
