Counselling and psychotherapy are professions that are multi-disciplinary and span many fields of study. Psychology and psychiatry are fields that have developed from science and the western medical model over the last 150 years. Counsellors/psychotherapists usually view human problems as a normal part of the human experience and support individuals to navigate life experiences. Whereas the medical model tends to see people in terms of health or disease and favours a system of diagnosis to treat mental and emotional difficulties. Psychiatrists are medically trained doctors who specialise in the diagnose and pharmaceutical treatment of mental illness. Many therapists believe that applying the Western medical model to the emotional or mental aspects of self can create unnecessary compacting of problems.
