A little about the history of psychology.

As with any science (physics, maths, chemistry, etc.), psychology was a by-product of another discipline — philosophy. It came up from the branch of it that deals with the study of the soul. Its’ development was driven by smaller occurrences, as was the case with many other sciences.
For instance, maths was divided into geometry, trigonometry, calculus; chemistry was split into organic and non-organic branches, etc.
Psychology was split into distinct branches from the original study of the human.  
You could see the emergence of psychology of the personality, differential, cognitive, social, general and applies psychologies. Psycho-genetics have appeared, as did psycho-diagnostics, psychology of the development and cognitive, as well as clinical psychology.  
And then there was more. Each direction of psychology became more specified and narrow. Each one had developed a school of thought, which created methodologies for problem solutions and help for people with specific concerns. Freudism, for example, insists that all psychological issues are tied to sexual pathologies.
But the human soul is so complicated, when it comes to its’ interaction with the outside world and can’t be analysed, like a mere mechanism and “fixed”. One can’t just pull it apart, fix some parts, put it back together and consider it ready to work.
There have been attempts to consider a man as a puzzle. There have been trainings that blatantly proclaimed they can “make any man be like Leonardo da Vinci”. The organisers had to apologise and accept that nobody can achieve such claims without help from higher powers.
Psychology has entered a crisis, like many other sciences have, in fact. New discoveries and achievements have been made possible and fusions of sciences have become the norm. We now have bio-chemistry and bio-physics, for example.
Psychology is not far behind. Despite the fact that the pure science continues its’ existence somewhere in all these fractions, techniques and methodologies of the practicing psychologists have changed a lot. Time for synergies!
Look for psychologists that apply a synthesis of various techniques that allows them to see the person, as a whole.

Decide on the problem you are facing. All problems can be more or less assigned to one of the three groups: personal family or children’s concerns.
If you discovered psychological issues with your children, you need a child psychologist. However, you must remember that most issues with kids are due to family problems. The first three years of a child’s life, they absorb and copy the behaviour of their family members, people around them, when the child tries to find ways to influence his or her surrounding, manipulating such to reach their own goals. From 3 to 7 the child tries to find her or himself, establishing their place in the family and the newly discovered world around. Teenage years are for self-realisation and establishment of own worth.
Problems of kids up to 10 years old can be resolve by correcting the behaviours of adults around them. The psychologist is likely to begin work on the adults, once the child is diagnosed.  
Teenagers need analysis, followed by separate sessions with the parents and the child, respectively.
Family issues typically include relations between husbands and wives, mothers-in-law, fathers-in-law and the like. Family psychologists are needed for these issues.
The best results can be achieved by joint efforts. This is not always possible but can be arranged nevertheless. Come for a visit, when a good psychologist will identify your problem, point out ways to fix them and reach the result you crave, while fixing your relationships.
Personal issues, such as phobias, depression, self-doubt, addiction, etc., can be resolved with a psychologist, too. There are a few effective techniques out there, which can help us resolve such issues and more. In order to improve behaviours, reach your potential in work and creative fields, obtain self-awareness and personal growth, it is best to attend themed training courses. You will receive theoretical knowledge, learn ways to apply them in a comfortable and pleasant manner, all within the confines of a productive training session, which will help practice the theory.

Remember that there is always a way out. Sometimes you need someone that can show you the way!
