PSYCHOTHERAPIST - a doctor who has a degree in natural sciences and has knowledge and skills in the field of mental and somatic health. A psychotherapist deals with emotional problems and related bodily problems, both those for which Family medicine doctors say "this disease is nerve-based" and those for which emotional factors are just one of the causes. A psychotherapist both diagnoses and treats, and most importantly, if the patient arrives early enough, he is able to prevent some physical symptoms and illnesses. The main method of treatment is deep psychotherapy, but if necessary, other psychotherapy methods and medications are also used.
