- Therapy for children, adolescents, and adults
- Treatments for mental health conditions such as anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, other addictions, and post-traumatic stress disorder

Challenges & Trends
Currently, there are some providers who deal with psychotherapy and counselling, but there is no legal regulation of the profession. Furthermore, universities do not offer training in this field and other training institutes have not been found. The field is very opaque.
