Psychologists

Psychologists study the processes, motives, reactions and nature of the human mind. They apply understanding of people and their behavior to help solve human problems. While psychiatrists are medically qualified specialists who give treatment to the mentally sick, psychologist is not qualified to prescribe medication. As far as psychotherapy (without drug prescription involvement) is concerned, a clinical psychologist and a psychiatrist when properly trained are equally competent.

Clinical psychologists use their knowledge when working with people who have health problems or severe learning difficulties

Counseling psychologists deal with milder problems unlike clinical psychologists who deal with people with serious emotional and personal problems. Counseling is the skill of helping normal people, While Social psychologists seek to understand the nature and causes of individual behaviour in social situations.
