  • learning and concentration disorders
  • writer´s block
  • fear of public speaking
  • avoiding or procrastinating on important projects
  • low or unstable self-esteem
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • lack of orientation or motivation
  • sexual problems
  • psychosomatic problems
  • conflicts with your partner or family
  • excessive use of your computer or the internet
