Depending on the level of complexity, talk therapy has to be administered by different professionals — a psychologist, counsellor, or psychiatrist. Milder issues such as stress or relationship woes can be addressed by counsellors, whereas psychologists handle deeper issues such as trauma. When the condition is dire and needs a mix of therapy and medication, a psychiatrist is the best bet. It will certainly make a person feel better. However, it won’t offer long-term benefits. A session with a therapist will entail better results. It’s an option for introverts who can’t talk to others. It encourages retrospection, and can help an individual figure out solutions to certain issues. But then again, it will not help tackle deeper issues.
