The Psychotherapist and His/Her Magic

Tkhostov A.Sh.
Doctor of Psychology, Professor, Head of Department of Clinical Psychology, Faculty of Psychology, Moscow State University Lomonosov, Moscow, Russia

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
