Psychiatry and Psychology are sister disciplines to Psychotherapy. Our practitioners are sympathetic to psychotherapy and your needs.
Psychiatry is the medical discipline associated with working with a mind. Some psychiatrists are also psychotherapeutically trained. As psychiatrists are medically trained, they are likely to use a medical model for intervention, and are allowed to prescribe. Please view the profiles of our psychiatrists to see their areas of interest.
Psychology is the study of mind, brain and behaviour. Psychology can be studied in many forms including: clinical, forensic, occupational, experimental and others. They may have different approaches but generally start from the need to understand human behaviour.
A psychotherapist will have areas of overlap with psychology but they do not have to have a degree in psychology and therefore some of the training will be different.
The approach of a psychologist who offers therapy is to assess the issue or issues causing distress or dysfunction and then offer a therapeutic approach in which they are trained.
