WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PSYCHOLOGIST AND PSYCHIATRIST?

A psychologist is a mental health specialist with undergraduate and postgraduate training in psychological treatment. Psychologists range from those who suffer serious mental illness to those needing support in understanding their relationships, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor with additional specialised training in mental health. They are able to prescribe medication and work well with GP’s and psychologists.
