General synopsis:

Psychotherapy is a recent modality within the mental health community in offering therapeutic service to those who require them. There is however much misunderstanding therein because clients expect wondrous cure achievements to alleviate their mental, social, emotional and psychological ailments. As such this had led to much confusion in psychotherapy engaged as tools for therapeutic reasons and psychotherapy as a spiritual path.  Buddhism, though started by The Lord Buddha Gotama mainly to serve the needs of the community of monks for them to obtain liberation from the samsaric cycles of existence, eventually transformed itself to meet the needs of entire humanity too. Hence, Buddhism can be effectively used as a therapy methodology also.
