Do I need a Psychologist or a Counsellor?
This is a question I am often asked. The short answer is, it depends. But first, it would be helpful to summarize the similarities and the differences between the two.
Counsellors / Therapists:
So if you are seeking an assessment for a mental health diagnosis, it would make sense to see a psychologist. But if you are requiring psychotherapy services, both counsellors and psychologists are qualified.
For over 20 years, Brentwood Counselling Centre has been offering counselling and therapy services for individuals, couples, relationships, marriages, families, and groups, serving clients from Burnaby, Vancouver, North Vancouver, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Surrey, and beyond.
All therapists at Brentwood Counselling Centre have extensive education and training in their areas of practice. Furthermore, they are all registered for clinical practice in BC and adhere to the strictest ethical guidelines as set out by their corresponding governing body.
