Yes, and to the best of my knowledge I do not have a psychological problem and I still will answer "yes".

A psychotherapist is, amongst other things, a life coach. She is there to look at your life and give you external feedback.

There's a remarkable article about coaching, "Personal Best", written by a doctor. That doctor found that twenty minutes being watched on the job and then coached later did more for him than years of other kinds of continued professional development.

We all benefit from having someone sit down with us, talk about where we want to go, give us ideas, help us formulate our concepts, pass on some wisdom from a cross-section of others, and then move on. I firmly believe that people need a psychological just as much as they need a physical: Every year or every two years they should get a check-in with a trusted counselor of any kind and just make sure they're on the right track.
