I am looking for one that does not believe that praying for me will eventtually cure me. Preferable a clinical psychologist with at least an M, preferable his doctorate.

There are "good" psychologists? Ones who provide some benefit to humankind? Shit, you learn something new every day! Next thing there'll be "good" homeopaths. Nance - where are yoooo?

I was waiting for this :D

rwenzori I know what you are thinking (Oops, was that sentence a Freudian slip?) Even though there are doubtful views on the benefits of psychiatry, psychology do have some serious merits in my view.

No it will not "cure" depression or hate, but it provides a foundation from which I believe anyone can benefit. As with everything, the "New agers" had their little grubby paws all over this field for some time. It is difficult to speak psychology these days without someone referring to "energy" or "field" etc.

So when I refer to a "good psychologist" I mean someone that knows that the person is the only one that can cause the desired outcome and they need to just facilitate the internal dialogue to a point where the solution is discovered. And that it purely a logical conclusion that needs to be reached, no energy field or the like that need to be tapped into or activated >:D

But I know that there may be some interesting views on this and I would love to hear more of the counter argument. Maybe we can move this to another topic all together ;D
