They may be, for example, grief reactions, anxieties, depression, fears, loss of self esteem, loss of confidence, relationship concerns, spirituality, identity issues - to name only a few.

Some further words...
Since you are considering psychotherapy as an individual or couple, there are many choices before you.
You will have certain expectations for a potential therapist.
You will want to find someone you feel is a “good fit.”
I believe you would best know this in experiencing an actual session with a potential therapist.
The following, however, may be helpful in providing a bridge to my work.
I work from a depth perspective in both individual and couples work.
Unlike many popular and pragmatic oriented approaches, a depth approach also includes attention to unconscious processes.
Adjusting, even changing, the ego orientation is often not enough.
Therefore the attention to dreams, day dreams, symptoms, intuitions are important considerations in the process of psychotherapy.
A depth approach attempts to provide lasting changes by addressing underlying issues and sources of healing.
