Axiology is an important topic of discussion in philosophical schools that deals with aesthetics and ethics. Axiology is related to ethics in its general sense and professional ethics in specific. Today, moral systems are seeking to answer man’s needs in various areas including professional ethics for psychotherapists. In this article, we have examined the axiology of illuminationism as the basis of our view and a major Islamic philosophy in order to draw from it the principles and methods of professional ethics for psychologists and psychotherapists. Sohrawardi, the founder of illuminationism, has offered certain instructions for the purification of ego. The aim of this article is to extract from this axiological system some implications that would be beneficial to psychotherapists. The method used in this research is descriptive-interpretive. Capacity, honesty, justice, benevolence, trustworthiness, commitment, respect for human dignity and secrecy are among the ethical principles of Illuminationism, and if psychotherapists can apply these values, their treatments and therapies will be more effective.
