Perspective Mapper vs. Psychotherapy

There is no doubt some overlap between psychotherapy and perspective analysis.
However, it’s helpful to identify some general differences.
  • therapist / patient counselling
  • identify, diagnose and resolve mental disorders and problematic thinking and behaviors.
  • trained/licensed therapist
  • Goal of improving overall wellness of mental health and well-being
  • Therapist (often) stays neutral / detached
  • Therapist maintains boundaries on what is within the realm of therapy and their patient’s worldviews.
  • Define, create, and follow-through with wellness goals
Perspective Analyst
  • peer-to-peer conversation
  • not focused on problems or disorders
  • Analyst shares their personal perspective, knowledge and experiences
  • Licensing doesn’t (yet) exist for this field.
  • Clarity through exploration of perspectives
  • Focused on helping people expand their own perspectives and listen to other peoples perspectives
  • Helps one respect one’s own thoughts/perspectives as well as respect other’s perspectives
  • See the bigger and broader picture
  • Fleshes out client’s unique political, social, ethical, and spiritual outlook
  • touching on society and humans as a whole
  • help clarify personal goals


  • Client is becoming more aware of their behavior, emotions, moods, and thoughts.
  • Identify sources of stress and conflict, both internally and interpersonally.
