"Then you must go to City of Emeralds. Perhaps Oz will help you."
"Where is this city?" asked Dorothy.
"It is exactly in center of country, and is ruled by Oz, Great Wizard I told you of."
"How can I get there?" asked Dorothy.
"You must walk. It is a long journey, through a country that is sometimes pleasant and sometimes dark and terrible.”
A psychotherapist is no more than a wizard or wizardess whose task is to help you find your self and in so doing seek your own soul. When your personal tornados toss you into unknown territory, learn to live with upheaval and follow your dreams. Let your wizard or wizardess help you. Remember your professional’s task is to guide you along way. Just as in Wizard of Oz, wizard is a very ordinary human. He or she just happens to be an extraordinary wizard.
