The term psychology can bring about many meanings. If not used properly, it could create a misconception because no one likes to be associated with words like lunatic, crazy or insane. As such, seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist can sometimes be challenging because it can be due to a wide variety of reasons.
Psychiatrists are basically specialists who are trained to diagnose and treat all types of mental disorders like depression, insomnia and such. In most cases, they will evaluate the patient before concluding with any sort of clinical assessment. In some cases, there would be a necessity for a physical examination using brain imaging systems like CAT (computerized tomography) scan, PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), all of which have been known for treating various types of mental disorders.
If you are required to meet with a psychiatrist, it does not in any way suggest that you have a mental problem. As such, you will need to find a doctor you are comfortable with as you might be revealing your innermost emotions. Among the doctors who are specialized in this area are:
