What is the difference between a Psychologist and a Psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists are trained medical doctors who prescribe medication, whereas psychologists are trained experts in human behaviour, and the processes determining how people think, feel, behave and react.

Psychologists apply their expertise using reliable and scientifically supported therapeutic methods and techniques, and they do not prescribe medication in Australia.

Psychologists focus on assisting people to understand their problems and to teach them practical skills to cope with psychological difficulties, and strategies to work towards resolving their problems.

Working with a skilled psychologist can help you to understand and change unhelpful patterns in your life.
