What is Psychotherapy

From the very beginning we must put aside a popular illusion that Psychotherapy is a “soul therapy”. It is not a “soul therapy”, just as Hirudotherapy is not “a therapy of leeches”, and Chemical Therapy is not a therapy of “chemicals”! “Psycho”- is translated from Latin as soul, and “Therapy” as treatment. Together it comes to treatment of a patient by soul. Whose soul is it? It is a soul of this who heals- thus of a Psychotherapist.  

Psychotherapy is correction of such unpleasant or specific state of human mind which prevents a person from normal way of living and it is treatment of different diseases ( both psychic and somatic) by specific rational discussion with specific modes of reasoning and methods. Psychotherapist helps someone, who asks for assistance, to clear a situation, to understand himself/herself and what is going on with him/her, and to work out an optimum line of behavior. Psychotherapy is not a treatment with medicine. But all its methods can be successfully used with any other way of assistance, including medicine.
