Psychologists are mental health professionals who utilise several skills and techniques to analyse your thinking process and emotional process. They also analyse how these processes impact your behaviour. Psychotherapists are any mental health professionals who utilise therapy sessions as a tool for treatment.

Psychiatrists are mental health professionals who mainly work with individuals diagnosed with mental illnesses. Psychiatrists are permitted to prescribe medication while psychologists are not.
