Psychological counsellors are not psychological doctors. If you experiencing negative emotions, seek help from a counsellor.
In HK, a psychological doctor is not a profession. Our work, counsellors, is to provide psychological counselling. A psychologist is different from a psychiatrist. A counsellor helps clients manage and address mental health issues such as stress, emotional distress, interpersonal relationship problems, developing interpersonal relations etc., through psychological counselling without the prescription of any medication.
The most common clients feel emotionally uncomfortable, sleepy, and can’t concentrate all day so they need to consult a psychological doctor.
When dealing with emotional distress, you can consult with a psychological doctor to help relieve emotions and provide assistance without using drugs.
When psychological doctors conduct psychotherapy, they must listen to and feel the seeker’s inner world, and help them explore their own inner feeling.
Many people ask how to choose a good psychiatrist. We will ask about the other party’s departure first, and what is the discomfort of the client.
In fact, the so-called “psychiatrist” is just a common term. It may be a psychological doctor. Which profession is more effective to help solve mental problems?
