In brief: Change behavior
Only you can change your behavior. Psychologists help you to understand issues that may govern your behavior and may provide clues as to how to deal with issues.
If you are smart enough to go, not resist personal insights, and continue until you have been benefited you may then respond by changing your behaviors. Good luck.
