What is the Difference Between a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist?

While "psychiatrist” and “psychologist" sound similar, people often use these terms interchangeably. Both these aspects share a lot in common. There are major differences in practice and education associated with them. Psychiatry is a department of medicine that focuses on treating and diagnosing mental health disorders. Psychiatrists use psychotherapy to help clients, but they also understand the crucial roles biology plays in mental health. Furthermore, they can treat mental illness with medication. On the other hand, psychology analyzes social and cognitive factors that can influence one’s behavior and response.Psychologists use a wide range of therapeutic treatments to improve mental health and recover from trauma.

What Treatments Do Psychiatrists Use?

Psychiatrists assess both mental and physical aspects of psychology and use a wide range of treatments to address these conditions. Some of them are:-

  • Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy, also called talk therapy, is a technique that uses communication to treat psychological and mental distress. Under this technique, a trained professional, in a confidential set-up, discusses part of your life that is causing mental distress. There are different types of psychotherapy, such as couple therapy, family therapy, group therapy, etc. Psychotherapy aims to help people change their behaviors, emotions, and thoughts that are causing trouble through dialogue.

  • Medications

Psychiatrists are licensed medical doctors with training and knowledge to prescribe medication for mental health conditions. A prescribed medication can be quite effective in treating symptoms of mental health conditions. Some of the most commonly prescribed medications include anti-depression, mood stabilizers, antipsychotic medications, stimulants, etc.

  • Electric Convulsive Treatment (ECT)

It is a treatment that involves sending a brief electric current through the brain. This treatment is most commonly used in people with severe depression or bipolar disorder. Doctors typically recommend this treatment if other treatments, such as talk therapy or medication, don’t work. Depending on the patient's condition, many find it helpful, while others don’t.

  • Cognitive Therapy

Cognitive therapy is another form of psychological treatment that has been quite effective for many mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, etc. This treatment helps you understand, learn, and change thought patterns that are influencing your actions and emotions negatively.

  • Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal Therapy or ITP, is another form of psychotherapy that aims to ease symptoms by improving interpersonal functioning. It is a lot different from other therapies and mainly focuses on how to fix the current situation rather than past trauma or developmental issues. It is usually time-limited therapy, which only lasts 12-16 weeks.

  • Other Treatments

The aforementioned are a few known treatments psychiatrists do but are not limited to. Some of the other treatments are psychodynamic therapy, transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy, light therapy, deep brain stimulation, and complementary therapies like mindfulness, meditation, yoga, etc.

Comprehensive Mental Health Services in Hyderabad: Disorders We Treat

Cadabams Hyderabad offers comprehensive mental health services addressing various conditions. Our experienced professionals specialize in managing even complex cases, including but not limited to.

  • Anxiety

Anxiety disorder is a mental health condition marked by excessive worry, fear, and physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat and sweating. While occasional anxiety is normal, when it becomes constant and hinders daily life, professional help is crucial.  There are different types of anxiety, like generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobia, OCD, and social anxiety disorder. Effective treatments like therapy and medication are available to help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

  • Depression

Depression is a lot more different than the normal sadness you feel in your day-to-day life. It is a continuous feeling of hopelessness, loss of interest in activities that you enjoyed earlier, lack of quality sleep, constant mood change, and loss of appetite.  While the causes are complex and vary from person to person, it's crucial to understand that it is a treatable medical condition.

  • Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a complex and chronic mental health condition that affects how you think. What causes schizophrenia is not known yet. Scientists believe it could be caused by biological, environmental, and genetic factors. People with this disorder experience thoughts that seem out of touch with reality in the form of delusions and hallucinations.

  • Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder, once known as manic-depressive illness, is characterized by extreme shifts in mood, energy, and activity levels. Individuals experience distinct episodes of mania (characterized by elevated mood, high energy, decreased need for sleep, and impulsivity), and depression. Like schizophrenia, the cause of bipolar disorder is not known, a combination of genetics, environmental factors, or altered brain structure may play a role.

  • ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity, or ADHD, is a mental health condition affecting approximately 129 million children and 366 million adults worldwide. This neurodevelopmental disorder often begins in childhood. A person with ADHD finds it difficult to pay attention, control impulsive behaviors, or be overly active. The causes are yet unknown; however, studies show that genetics play an important role in it.

  • PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder often develops after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying situation or event. While some people may recover from the trauma, for others, the emotional and physical scar continues and hinders daily life. Through evidence-based treatments, people can gradually take control of their lives.

  • Dissociative Disorders

It is a mental process wherein a person who experiences any traumatic event disconnects from their thoughts, sense of identity, memories, and feelings. In most cases, over a period, dissociation gets resolved on its own, but some who develop this condition need medical interventions and treatments.

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

People with OCD experience frequent unwanted and negative thoughts, and to get rid of these thoughts or to ease their stress, they indulge in repetitive behavior and activities. This repetitive behavior could be anything, for example, hand washing, checking on things, etc., which can significantly impact personal and professional life.

  • Panic Disorder

Panic is the body’s natural response to stressful and dangerous situations. Panic disorder is different from normal fear or anxiety, it is a type of anxiety wherein a person has recurring panic attacks. Some of the symptoms of panic disorder include a severe feeling of terror, increased heart rate, and rapid breathing. It can occur suddenly and for no apparent reason.

  • Postpartum Depression

It is a common yet very serious medical condition, and it can happen to both males and females. Postpartum is defined as episodes of depressive disorder that happen shortly after the birth of a child. It is mostly reported in mothers, but it also occurs in fathers. According to data, 1 in every 7 mothers and 1 in every 10 fathers experience postpartum depression.

  • Mood disorders

Mood disorder is a condition that mainly impacts your emotional state and can cause intense sadness, anger, irritability, or euphoria. An individual with a mood disorder may experience these intense feelings for many weeks, which can cause changes in their behavior.

  • Sleep disorders

Sleeping is an important aspect of our overall well-being and sometimes it is natural that we don’t get enough sleep due to many lifestyle reasons. But for a person with a sleep disorder, it is a regular event that impacts their daily life. There are different types of sleep disorders, such as insomnia, sleep apnea, parasomnia, restless leg syndrome, etc.

What Our Clients Have To Say

I have been consulting the doctors at Cadabam’s for over 6 months now for my father who has dementia. The doctors and staff at the hospital are very polite and kind and have provided excellent support and care right from day one. They not only explain the treatment plan thoroughly but also take out the time to make sure we understand complications and side effects that could come along the way. If you or your loved one is dealing with any mental health issues, I highly recommend Cadabam’s.

I’m very happy with the doctors, medical staff, and facilities at Cadabam’s hospital. Apart from being highly skilled in the field, the doctors and other medical staff are also very patient and supportive. Right from diagnosing the issue to prescribing medicines and creating the perfect treatment plan, they are with you every step of the way. I am glad I reached out to the team at Cadabam’s for counseling sessions.

I have observed great improvements in my son who has autism. The treatment plan created by the doctors has helped reduce the symptoms and he now is slowly learning new skills that assist him in his day-to-day activities. I cannot thank the team at Cadabam’s enough for giving my son the opportunity to have a happy and healthy childhood.

Excellent doctors, excellent team of medical staff, excellent facilities. From the people to the facilities and infrastructure, Cadabam’s has everything you need to address and improve your mental health illnesses.

I’m extremely grateful to the doctors and the entire team at Cadabams for creating an action plan to help me with my anxiety. I was finding it very difficult to maintain a social life and even focus on my career because of my severe anxiety. But now that I have been meeting with the team for over a year, I can proudly say that I have gotten much better at understanding and dealing with my anxiety. Thank you Cadabam’s!

My wife and I were not able to maintain a healthy relationship due to a lot of personal issues. Just when we thought our marriage would be over, we decided to seek couple’s counseling at Cadabam’s. The team of therapists and psychologists helped us build back our relationship and taught us how to communicate better and reduce conflicts in our day to day life.

I used to run around to consult different professionals for cmy son’s treatment. At Cadabam’s, it was so much more convenient. From psychiatrists to rehabilitation, they had it all. I am really happy with how they have helped my son and I can see immense changes in him.

What really struck me was how polite and understanding the professionals were. We availed home care services from Cadabams and the professional was so understanding. They took their time, spoke to all the members, and gave us an in-depth understanding of the illness. We have now started coming in for regular sessions. It’s worth it!

It was the first time we had faced something like this. Our daughter was going through immense strain and wasn’t responding to anything we said. That was when we contacted Cadabams, and we were surprised by how prompt they were with treatment. They treated our situation as an emergency and took immense care of our daughter.
