What is the difference between a Counsellor and a Psychologist?
Counsellors use talk-based therapy to help people to develop self-understanding and make changes in their lives.
A counsellor will allow you to talk through your personal concerns, gain perspective, develop coping strategies, and increase self-awareness.
A Psychologist, in addition to the above, receives specific training in assessment and evidence based intervention as well as providing formalised diagnosis for Mental Health conditions.
