Eventually, what a therapist gives his or her patients besides medicines is the gift of unshakable faith on God and they also guide them to believe in the generosity of the world’s natural infrastructure that is designed to reward their efforts sooner or later. An effective therapist supports the presence of individualism and personal freedom in the mindset of the disturbed person. According to psychological theory, humans experience dissatisfaction when they stop growing and the notion of growth is strongly and firmly associated with the sub-concept of action so therapists are there to help people in the process of overcoming stagnation by forcing them to move on. It is often argued that life can only be lived in one direction which is forward.Psychotherapists are indeed practitioners of an inexact science because they cannot do anything in terms of bettering one’s life but they help him or her in getting over pains of the past which keep haunting present (Szasz, 1958) and therefore, destroy the future as well. Psychologists are ethically and even legally righteous in getting paid for their services because they tend to suffer along with their clients and for which they have to be paid because after all another’s pain and suffering is not theirs in reality. The theory of social exchange is applied in every human relation and psychotherapy is no different in this regard because therapist suffers along with the patient in order to get paid. In addition, it is important to note that most of therapists are known to be generous enough to forego their payments in order to become capable of helping the pained humanity that cannot.
