It is not easy to define Psychotherapy, as there is no single definition.

Psychotherapy is a formal process of interaction between two parties, one of which is supposed to be in trouble in one or more areas that are not working as may. The person in distress can manifest thought disorder or an emotional distress or problems in behavior. The therapist(psychologist or doctor) who has special training post- degree that allowed him to enter the professional qualification of psychotherapist, makes use of theories and their methods of treatment that are a function of the personality and stage of life in which there is at that time the patient.

The treatment methods are many, hence the difficulty to give an unambiguous definition, although I think the best method is its, the one that best characterizes and makes a therapist quel therapist and not another, as indeed everyone is someone and not another.

What distinguishes one from a counseling Psychotherapy(counseling)?

The boundaries not always are well defined: we can say that in general psychotherapy lasts much longer(although there are short-term psychotherapy); we can add that in general the counseling is centered on the problem and makes use of behavioral prescriptions while, psychotherapy is time to seek the reasons for a certain behavior. Corsini e Wedding (Authors of "Psychotherapy, theories, techniques and cases ", Guerini studio publisher) thus define the two professional: A counselor is first and foremost a teacher, the psychotherapist is basically an investigator. Also in response to the change that psychotherapy produces, there is no unanimity on the bases that produce. The process of change many factors contribute, among which: cognitive factors, affective factors, behavioral factors and others.

He then realizes that beyond the theories, models and methods, what matters most are the people in the game and the game between people.

Who has access to a psychotherapy?

Theoretically, anyone interested, motivated and willing, to focus their attention on himself and to embark on a path that, in a succession of moments tiring and sometimes painful, other times just plain exciting or lightness, leads us in the direction of greater self-awareness, of their resources and their critical.

Jung believed that the first part of our lives had as an objective to make stronger the ego, finding your place in the world prorpio, while that of the second was detection, ie retrieve parts of itself is not developed to try to achieve greater use of these aspects of personality. The maximum memory Nietszchiana “Become What You Are”(taken from an ode of Pindar) rather effectively summarizes the end of the discovery process and with it the end of a Jungian psychotherapy to address.

In light of the said, we might add that “Analytical Psychotherapy, in substance, embarked on a dialogue between two people in order to promote the development, the cure and a new synthesis of the personality of the patient to a higher level of functioning. By means of the analytic relationship, working on personal problems and was acquired a deeper understanding of the inner world and the outer world of the individual”(Corsini e Wedding).
