What is a Psychologist?

Generally speaking, a psychologist is someone who studies mental states and human social behaviours. While we have the stereotypical image of a psychologist as someone who provides therapy by getting you to speak about your struggles (often called psychotherapy or ‘talk therapy’), in reality the psychological field is a lot more varied and nuanced than that.

There are psychologists who delve deep into clinical research instead of practicing psychology, and as such do not engage with patients or clients. Those that do practice are also further subdivided into numerous specialisations.

For the purposes of this list, we will focus on psychologists who provide therapy, help negotiate mental health struggles and encourage overall well-being.

What is the difference between a psychiatrist, psychologist and a counsellor?

Psychiatrists are certified medical doctors with medical degrees who specialise in mental health, and most importantly, are able to prescribe medication if necessary. They operate on the clinical side of psychology, dealing with and treating the physical signs and symptoms of mental health. Psychologists do not have a medical degree, but are mental health professionals who have advanced degrees at Master’s or Doctorate levels. They deal with the behavioural aspect of mental health by encouraging the patient to develop healthy mental habits and practice mindfulness. Psychiatry and psychotherapy often go hand in hand.

A counsellor is similar to a psychologist in that they also provide therapy and psychoeducation – however they are not qualified to make psychological assessments or give diagnoses.

Examples of psychological services

Psychological services are not always provided on an individual basis. In fact, it might sometimes be more beneficial to attend therapy sessions in pairs (especially for couples) or groups (such as for families or those who are struggling with addiction). Psychotherapy doesn’t always have to take place in person, either. In fact, therapy can take place over the phone, through a video call, or even through text. This makes therapy highly mobile and accessible, to ensure that those who require such services can get the help they need.

Psychological services aim to address mental and behavioural issues that the patient has been struggling with, and to provide healthy ways to come to terms with and cope with such issues. An example is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), a type of talking therapy where the psychologist helps the client explore thought patterns and processes when approaching problems in life. The psychologist can identify unhelpful behavioural patterns and encourage the patient to free themselves from negative coping mechanisms or associations when dealing with issues like anxiety and depression.

Psychological services are helpful to almost anyone dealing with troubling issues in their lives, and not just ones related to mental health struggles. Patients dealing with grief, trauma, difficult relationships and stress will all benefit from therapy sessions with a trained psychologist.

Other psychological services include psychological assessments (vital for certain careers), interventions and crisis management, just to name a few.

Below, we present to you our list of top psychologists in Singapore, who have all been highly-rated by their clients.

How are psychological services beneficial?

  • Coping with mental health issues

Psychological services directly benefit those struggling with issues like obsessive behaviour, anxiety, depression, or trauma. This is accomplished by helping patients cope with the physical symptoms of their afflictions (eg panic attacks, difficulty breathing) and teaching them techniques to help make such episodes easier. With enough time, therapy sessions can slowly pave the way to recovery and allow patients to lead a less disruptive life.

  • Understanding interpersonal relationships

It is often difficult for us to puzzle out our emotions and predict our reactions to certain situations, such as when we fly into a rage or wallow in grief. It is an even greater challenge when it comes to dealing with others. Therapy can help us give a voice to our emotions and psychologists can help us learn how to deal with them better. It can also give us a deeper understanding and empathy when it comes to interpersonal relationships. For example, family and marriage counselling are crucial in helping to bridge divides and save relationships. The therapist acts as a non-judgemental and impartial third party who listens to differences in opinions and helps everyone come to terms with their differences.  

  • Managing your emotions and learning useful mindfulness techniques

Repressing our emotions is never a good thing, especially since they almost always return with a vengeance. If we don’t deal with the issue at hand, it doesn’t magically disappear and in fact only grows with time. Attending therapy and talking to the psychologist about pent-up emotional frustrations invites a different perspective from the psychologist, and working through such issues is crucial in managing our stress levels. You might think that talking to a friend accomplishes the same goal, and while that is partly true, a psychologist goes further by giving you the knowledge to identify why you are feeling a certain way, whether it is unhealthy, and how to deal with it. In other words, psychologists can arm you with the right tools to help you manage your emotions.

Research has shown that therapy has long-term benefits and that the lessons learnt during therapy can be applied to future situations. Since therapy helps in identifying unhealthy repetitive thought patterns, patients can avoid the same pitfalls they suffered previously when confronted with crises in life. Daily practice of mindfulness techniques and relaxation methods taught to them through therapy are also beneficial in maintaining a healthy mental state and overall well-being, and this gives them the confidence needed to face future issues, no matter the circumstances. Simply put, therapy can enhance one’s quality of life.

  • Complete privacy

Perhaps one of the most important things a therapist can provide is confidentiality. What you tell your psychologist during therapy sessions will never be shared or discussed with anyone else. Many people are afraid to deal with their issues not because they don’t want to, but for fear of judgement and humiliation. A psychologist provides a safe space for you to lay out your problems in confidence, so that long-repressed issues can finally be resolved.
