Explanation:
COUNSELLOR = sovetnik (literally), someone who gives advice. In Russia, a therapist can be a "rational" adviser with the name of
"rationalnii psikhoterapevt" i.e. someone who gives rational advice, talk sense to a patient, instead of the "psychoanalytic" methods used in the West. In the West, when we give practical advice we call this "counselling"; the Russians call it "rational therapy".
