What is a Psychotherapist / Counsellor?
A psychotherapist uses talk therapy to treat people for emotional problems and mental illnesses. Depending on what degree and specialty they get, psychotherapists can also be psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, or social workers. They can work with individuals, couples, groups, or families.
Psychotherapists and counsellors use talk therapy to help you manage with general emotional unrest or acute trauma or illness. They treat everything from daily overwhelm to grief to specific mental disorders like depression or anxiety. Sometimes talk therapy is used in combination with medications or lifestyle changes. However, not all psychotherapists are licensed to prescribe medication.
