A Psychologist is different from a Psychiatrist . A Psychologist is not an actuall Doctor as such and deals with more areas such as Counselling , etc whilst a Psychiatrist is more medication basesd. But I was talking to a Psychologist rece recently who was telling me she is booked out over xmas due to people arriving worried they were losing their jobs and anxiety etc. But Psychologists can also be used for life motivation , or getting back on track with your life, changing your life etc. I suppose its a bit like a life coach except Psychologists are university trained. Under Medicare you can get 10 discount visits per year . I did see a few Psychologists but feel you need to find the right one for whatever area your looking to improve. I use to have these depressive episodes in my life until i found out what was causing it was actually sleep apnea and. Not real depression.
