What's the difference between Psychologist / Psychotherapist / Psychiatrist / Psychoanalyst ?
A Clinical Psychologist is a psychologist who specializes in mental disorders and working with patients who suffer from them. They haven't necessarily been trained in psychotherapy.
A Psychotherapist has been trained in one or more psychotherapeutic methods in order to help patients recover from the psychological issues they encounter.
A Psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in mental disorders and their pharmaceutical treatment. He is the only one allowed to give an official diagnosis and prescribe medication. However, they usually do not offer psychotherapy.
A Psychoanalyst is someone who has been trained to lead a long-term psychoanalysis by an experimented psychoanalyst from recognized institute. This title is not always protected in every country. The treatment requires multiple sessions a week, and usually lasts for years. It doesn't have to be about healing a disorder, but rather a path to self-discovery and inner growth.
