Is medication a substitute for counselling therapy? Should I just go for psychiatrist?
It is well established that the long-term solution to mental and emotional problems and the pain they cause cannot always be solved solely by medication. Instead of just treating the symptom, counselling addresses the cause of our distress and the behaviour patterns that are not helping us.
In some cases a combination of medication and counselling therapy can be the right course of action. This involves working collaboratively with your medical Doctor.
