The authors present the results of a survey on the subject of courage in the practice of psychotherapy. Courage is a quality often required to patients undergoing psychotherapy, but more rarely attributed to therapists. After an introduction on the concept of "courage", considered in itsòplè+ triple meaning of "masculine warrior quality", of "solidarity" and of "moral responsibility", a qualitative analysis of 105 questionnaires on the theme of courage in psychotherapy is brought on and discussed in detail. The aim of the survey is to open a thinking process on the theme of courage as a tool present (or absent) in the "toolbox" of the therapist, but also to understand what is the meaning of "courage" for psychotherapists and reflect on aspects of the profession that may require to be brave.
