What is the difference between psychotherapy and wise advice?

Many people prefer taking help from wise people. They consult elders, friends and colleagues for advice.

What is psychology? How is it different from wise advice? What is the necessity to go to a psychologist to solve problems? Why cant we seek help from any wise people? Why psychologists are working so hard? What makes them unique?


There is a key feature which differentiates advice and therapy.

Advice comes from adviser’s mind.

Psychology churns and brings out solution from client’s mind!


Psychologist acts as a mirror and reflects patient’s thoughts and feelings. He will neither influence nor manipulate client.
