    No. Psychology is the science of the mind, it is not a superstition or a method of ascribing partners to Allah. It does not violate Tawheed.
    This is a permissible science and seeking aid from a psychologist is not only halal but in some cases it would be mandatory (e.g. someone is experiencing extreme depression and on the verge of suicide).

      Asalamu Alaykum Warahmatullah.

      Seeking a psyocologist is a very good thing in some cases, but first speak to a knowledgable scholar about it. Psycologists can have a hard time understanding many things, like they won't understand the concept of jinn. Sometimes it is not even neccesary to seek a psycologist, you can just read some Quran, or speak with good brothers/sisters about it. W/salam.
      Sisters don't rep or joke with me.

        Abu-Yahya is right in that a non-Muslim psychologist would have a very hard time understanding issues related to Islam. It would be ideal to seek a psychologist who is Muslim, but no matter who the psychologist is do not obey their instructions if they suggest something which is against Islam.

          Psychology is different from psychiatry. The former is a social science that must be adapted to Islamic culture, or Islamized. It is not an empirical science, but is prone to Kufr cultural beliefs, like the idea of evolutionary biological and anthropological concepts apply to treatment ( such as the notion that homosexuality is natural and therefore should be accepted).
          Psychiatry is a branch of medical science that has more empirical universality, but it too can be clouded with Kufr concepts. Thus, one should seek a Muslim psychiatrist or psychologist who can clearly approach a Muslim from an Islamic cultural perspective.
          Allahumma, aranee al haqqu haqqan wa arzuqnee itiba`ahu, wa aranee al baatilu baatilaan wa arzuqnee ijtinaabahu.Oh Allah! show us the truth as true, and inspire us to follow it. Show us falsehood as falsehood, and inspire us to abstain from it.
