A psychotherapist is a person who treats mental and emotional disorders through psychological methods, such as psychoanalysis, group therapy, and behavioural therapy rather than medical methods.[1]

An advertisement for a portrait counselling service that appeared in the Daily Prophet informed readers that its "trained psychotherapists" were available to make house calls in order to treat portraits experiencing mental disorders and emotional distress.[2]
