The different terms can seem confusing. Yet, they all refer to the process of meeting with a trained professional to help you manage personal issues.

•  A Counsellor has specific training in counselling theory and skills, as well as clinical experience of face-to-face counselling. Counsellors usually conduct short and medium-term work.

•  A Psychotherapist is also trained in counselling skills and theory, but generally works in greater depth. Psychotherapy is often medium to long-term.

   A Counselling or Clinical Psychologist has similar training to a counsellor or psychotherapist, but also holds a degree in Psychology.

•  A Psychiatrist is a medically-trained professional who offers diagnostic assessment and a treatment programme which could include drugs or psychological therapy.
