What is the difference between a counsellor, psychotherapist, psychologist and psychiatrist?
A counsellor works with individuals, couples/partnerships, families and groups to focus on concerns that are happening in the present to help overcome what is causing current distress whether it be generic or specific issues.
A psychotherapist works with individuals, couples/partnerships, families and groups to overcome a variety of concerns using specific types of therapeutic approaches and methods. A psychotherapist will often focus on deeper issues of the past, for example abuse or trauma, which are still having an impact in the present by exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and where this may stem from.
A Psychologist studies the way people think, feel, act, react and interact and focuses on all aspects of behaviour and the underlying motivations behind it. Psychologists are not always medically trained, but can specialise in certain areas such as health, education, forensic and occupational psychology working in a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings.
A Psychiatrist studies mental health problems and is able to diagnose conditions and support people in managing them. Psychiatrists are medical doctors specialised in this field and are able to prescribe medication. In addition to having a caseload of patients, they will often conduct research to develop their expertise.
