In brief: Non-compliance

Also, ones who lack insight into their illness will see no need for help.

In brief: Avoiding therapy

In the many years i've been doing therapy, I have found that there is always a percentage of the population that resists and/or refuses to get help for their psychological problems.
The reasons for this are as varied as peoples' personalities are, but as a general rule, these individuals are either in denial of their problems, are anxious about looking at themselves, or would rather blame others.
