The author of this paper derives information from her own experience as a clinical psychologist, as well as the opinion of other psychologists such as Nathaniel Brandon, to address the issue of a pervasive sense of inner guilt and shame which originates, to some degree, in the Judeo-Christian religious upbringing of many patients. The author shows how she has developed a method of addressing these psychological issues in a manner that fulfills her professional and ethical obligations as a therapist, without inspiring unnecessary conflicts with the personal religious beliefs of the patients.
