This article is a result of the sequence of discussions between authors about threats occurring in social environment for the organization of the Polish system of the health care at all, and especially for psychotherapy as one of the areas of the medical market. Authors are paying attention to the threats which are: the risk of reducing the quality of psychotherapy, the risk of objectifying the patient and change of the psychotherapist into the service provider. The other issue is a subject of the organization of the system of training psychotherapists and the need of re-definition of the psychotherapy in the light of the observed latest trend turning up in the West.
