This is a common uncertainty, many people don’t know the difference between a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist. Here’s a brief explainer to help you understand which would offer you the most value.
If you're not sure the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist, you're not alone. Both psychiatrists and psychologists are trained in how the brain works and how to promote mental health. The difference is that psychiatrists have attended medical school and undertaken speciality training, whereas psychologists have trained in psychology through university.
As medical doctors, psychiatrists have a role in assessment, diagnosis and treatment. This treatment can involve talking therapy as well as medications. Psychologists focus on talking therapy treatments. For diagnostic assessments and treatment where there is likely to be a role for medications, a psychiatrist appointment is the most suitable option. For psychological treatments, seeing a psychologist is a good first step.
Our psychiatrists and psychologists work closely together and many people see both for a holistic treatment plan.
