The author joins the discussion of A.I. Sosland's article, «Psychotherapy entangled in contradictions». He argues that any therapeutic process must have a semiotic component, which contributes to its efficiency. The author analyses the issues of psychotherapy's legitimisation and the danger of becoming an ideology.
Keywords: Psychotherapy, evaluation of its efficiency, the problem of its legitimacy
