Description Psychotherapy training is a part of education of therapist. The decision making process before entering the training is considered as an important part of the therapist personal and professional development. The results offer a comprehensive overview of the motivation, expectations and positive and negative feelings of the trainees before the beginning of the training. The research question is: „How is it for the trainees to be before the beginning of the training?“. The grounded theory method was employed. Results indicate that the forward-looking positive feelings are easily available in the experience of the trainees, while negative emotions like nervosity or uncertainty are often revealed later during the interview. There are two most important influences on decision making, whether to enter or not to enter the TPI: the first is the emerging confidence in the trainers, the second the early conception of the integration from the view of the trainees. The whole process of decision making is framed by the personal history and related conditions in the trainees lives (family situation, time, money etc.). The study offers a comprehensive view on experience of the trainees before entering the training trying to contextualize it with the development of their profession identiy.
