  My impression from admittedly random reading is that whether any method 
is effective is another matter. I don't know whether "removing" the sources 
of emotional stress is accomplished by any form of psychiatry or 
psychoanalysis, but I wonder whether, in the instance here, declaring his 
religion didn't do something like that for TSE. To at least some degree, 
confessing is confessing.
