The article analyzes the issue of why some clients/patients need irrational practices to restore their mental state, while others need rational ones. The conclusion is that the correspondence between the ″customer myth″ and the ″therapist myth″ is very important for achieving effective psychotherapeutic interventions. However, even though an irrationally oriented psychotherapist can be effective, rational practices should be preferred — cognitive-behavioral therapy, anticipation training, existential psychotherapy, or methods of self-regulation, such as mindfulness practices or using the Master Kit mobile application. The irrational cannot be considered harmonious. Only psychotherapy based on rationalism and common sense can cope with both symptoms and phenomena and lead to personal growth and a state in which a person can make free and responsible choices.
