This is an AURELIS view. Of course, AURELIS (+ Lisa) is in the picture. One can see this as the pure use of Compassion in its complexity and effectiveness.

About ‘mental healing’
In the broadest sense, mental healing is about the relief of suffering and the fostering of human mental growth. This is also the dual goal of Compassion. [see: “Two-Sided Compassion”]
Psychotherapy, a recent Western invention
Within the Western medical-model thinking, the human mind has been conceptualized as an entity that should be free of disease. If it is ill, it requires therapy.
This is straightforward: IF broken THEN repair ― very fruitful in the domain of physics. Thus, medicine was modeled on this. However, related to the mind, it doesn’t fit because the mind is complex ― different from complicated. [see: “Complex is not Complicated”] Neurocognitive science shows the brain/mind to be extremely complex. [see: “Patterns in Neurophysiology“]
This has made instrumental psychotherapies flawed from the start, some 120 years ago. Meanwhile, scientifically, this has been pointed out repeatedly and robustly. [see: “Psychotherapy vs. Psychotherapies”] Note: psychotherapy works well but not on the basis of instrumental theories and methodologies inasmuch as these do not take into account the individual mind’s complexity.
We have to substantially rethink the future of mental healing.
This is needed to go forward on a scientific basis.
Therapy is used in ‘waging war against the disease.’ In AURELIS mental healing, there is no war. Therefore, AURELIS is no therapy. Thus, it can be used in conjunction with any kind of therapy.
The promise is huge as to effectiveness, depth, and durability with much less cost. This is relevant to psychological issues and even more so to psycho-somatics, nowadays called MUS. [see: “Medically Unexplained Syndromes (MUS)“]
The promised cost reduction is immense. [see: “Saving € 1 trillion in healthcare]
Much has been worked out within AURELIS
Many insights and practical tools are available. Below the following scheme, for each element with a triangle at the top, you find links to relevant blog texts and other parts of the AURELIS websites.
This deserves a special place in ‘mental healing.’ Remember how COVID-19 came as a surprise even though in retrospect, something alike was more than probable. So it is with the real intelligence in A.I., soon enough. Being knowledgeable in A.I. as well as human cognitive science, I see many parallels.
Mental healing towards Compassion is necessary to make the transition to real A.I. smooth and humane. A double bottleneck awaits us: 1) Will humans manage A.I. Compassionately? 2) Will A.I. further evolve – also autonomously – with Compassion?
And, of course, what role can Lisa [see: “Lisa“] play in this?
