In this article analyze image-mediators in the texts of fiction, and its influence on the reader is considered to be therapeutic. The research of therapeutic texts is connected with the theory of therapeutic metaphor. The sacral myth, which presented as mythologemes in the textes is often relieved as a source of such influence. Mythologemes reproduce deep, hidden meanings and model new, unique characteristics of the author's idiostyle in the literary text . In the prose of Mykhailo Kotsiubynsky and Galyna Pagutyak, the mythologemes of window and doors manifest the boundary, they endowed with characteristics of outer or inner world’s objects. In short novels of Mykhailo Kotsiubynsky «Apple blossom» and «He Comes!» the window is an unregulated entry for chthonic beings, the portal through which the connection with the infernal world is carried out, and in the world of imagination, dreams, art - in a synergistic way, where the sound, color, touch and smell are combined. Doors perform the function of a temporary cover and illusory protection from the world of current time, over which the death hang over. In «The book of dreams and awakens» Galina Pagutyak, windows and doors exchange their functions: the doors are open, and the windows are locked up, and they also play the role of mediators between the real world and the «anti-world». As a character-images «Window» and «Doors» unfold their ambivalent symbolic spectra, but as mediator-character they act as leaders in the other world, separating real and unreal worlds.
