Chronic constipation
I'm having chronic constipation since last 2 years. I wanted to know if stress, anxiety or depression can lead to chronic constipation? Will psychotherapy or CBT help in curing my condition? Should I consider therapy with a psychologist? What treatments will help? Kindly advise.

For constipation you should first consult a gastroenterologist and rule out any GI pathology before consulting a psychiatrist. While stress/depression patients may also have constipation but it is generally not the presenting complain.
