Our expert says:
A psychologist is specially trained to give counselling or the more advanced method, psychotherapy. And they have the great advantage that they can't prescribe meds, whereas there's a risk that a psychiatrist, being a medical doctor allowed to write prescriptions, and often little trained in counselling skills, may give you a drug you don't need and not the counselling you do need. There are also properly registered psychological counsellors who can be very useful.
