What’s the Difference between Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Psychologists and Psychiatrists?

As above, there is no meaningful difference between the counsellors and psychotherapists. Psychologists usually have more formal training, i.e., university, and more academic or theoretical training. A person referred to as a psychologist usually has at least a Master’s degree in psychology and often a PhD., or doctorate. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialise in mental health and who have the training to prescribe medications.
