What Is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is good research into the realities of life in general and into the reality of the patient's life in particular.

The research done in psychotherapy must be done in the context of an important, loving relationship.

People are unique and complicated. Any psychotherapy that offers recipes oversimplifies and confuses rather than clarifies our understanding.          

Psychotherapy involves the therapist encouraging the patient to consider and eventually incorporate new beliefs about one's self.

The duration of psychotherapy depends on the nature and complexity of the problem and the person's willingness to work hard on these issues.
