Psychologists are experts in counseling and are masters in good communication. They have command in human behavior and thinking. But they can’t offer medication. Nowadays psychologists are taking a seminar on different psychological topics like:

Or they will conduct research on your problems. They will analyze your problems and finally tell you the solution. This means if a person suffering from psychological problems like stress, frustration due to long time failures, I will advise you to go to psychologists.

But if one has a major problem which can’t be cured by a psychologist then and then only I will suggest to consult a psychiatrist. Psychologist gold coast is a team of expert professionals having a good experience. They have the ability to solve all human behavior related problems.

Now let’s talk about psychiatrist….

A psychiatrist is a person who is specialized in the psychiatric field. It is the branch of the medical field related to the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Psychiatrists are doctors and check patients to determine which symptoms they have such as physical illness or mental illness.

A psychiatrist generally works with an expert team, which consists of psychologists, therapists, and nursing staff. Psychiatrists have broad training in approach for evaluation and management of mental illness.

Psychiatrists conduct a physical examination, a mental status examination, and so on. Psychiatrists prescribe medicine and psychotherapy., Though their primary work is to concentrate on medical treatment and refer to a psychologist or other therapist for weekly or monthly psychotherapy. In a psychiatric evaluation test, the doctor will ask you about your thoughts, feelings, and normal activities. The psychiatrist will ask you several questions related to your thinking process. He will give a questionnaire and will ask to fill it.

Psychiatrists have knowledge of how to diagnose a patient, how to treat patients, how to behave with the patient in order to get good results. So one should first accept that he/she needs to have certain psychological problems. Because primary thing is that the person is not ready to accept that he/she is suffering from that particular situation.

The person suffering from psychological problems must discuss these problems with their closed ones. As they will help you in advising a good psychiatrist. If your closed ones don’t have any idea about it than one can search on the internet.  A psychiatrist will firstly communicate with you.  He will take you in confidence. They will analyze your problem and tell the solution. Their diagnosis is very efficient to patients. The doctor will determine the diagnosis of depression based on several tests.

A few of them include a physical exam, lab tests, psychiatric evaluation, DSM-5.  In a physical exam test, your doctor can check your mental health on the basis of the physical exam and will ask questions related to your health. In lab tests, the doctor will take a blood test or thyroid test in which he will check that the thyroid system is working properly or not.

In a psychiatric evaluation test, the doctor will ask about your thoughts, feelings, and normal activity. In which he will ask how much percent negative thoughts appears in your mind and the same about the positive. He will give a questionnaire and will ask to fill it.

In the DSM-5 test, the doctor may use the criteria for depression listed in the Diagnosis and Statistical Manual of Mental disorder which is published by the American Psychiatric Association.

As per my point of view psychologists and psychiatrists, both are best. But whom to select it totally depends on the patients’ condition.
