Who You Gonna Call: A Life Coach, Psychologist or Psychiatrist??




Although May was technically Mental Health Awareness Month, we here at The PPI Times would like to remind--especially all Womenfolk--that every month is an opportunity to tune into your core mental and emotional status. Women are typically socialized to simply go-go-go and ignore the warning signs presented by a change in their moods, desires, energy levels and behaviours. And people of colour, worldwide, have also experienced the additional stigma of being shamed out of seeking expert mental or emotional help--by their own cultural communities--or for even just revealing their struggles with emotional or mental stability. But, letting symptoms roll past for too long can lead to everything from the snowballing of present issues in one's work or home life, to a complete mental, emotional, and/or physical breakdown.

And, to add insult to injury, in our finger-snapping, on demand existence, the question always remains--when you do reach out for professional mental help, whom do you call? Is it the so-very-21st-century Life Coach, or the traditional so-called 'couch therapist', i.e., a Psychologist or Psychiatrist? 

Here are some key distinctions that can assist you in making that critical, life-saving decision for the restoration of your emotional and mental wellbeing:


Life Coaches are skilled at analyzing and evaluating the 360 of your life—typically in view of a nagging issue you’re having (e.g. feeling stressed/overworked/professional burnout, lack of work/life balance, and more), or a stated goal you’ve revealed. They assist you in strategizing how to resolve your problem or accomplish your goal; and both mentor and keep you accountable throughout the entirety of the issue resolution/goal achievement process. 

Psychologists are specifically trained to test you for abnormal mental and emotional states of mind, behaviour, and processes; and they treat mental illness with counseling, in tailored and ongoing psychotherapy sessions with you. 

Psychiatrists, like psychologists, are also trained to diagnose mental diseases—but unlike psychologists, they are also medical doctors, who can additionally prescribe stabilizing psychiatric medication to you, in addition to counseling you in ongoing psychotherapy sessions, in order to treat mental illness. They are also trained to determine whether there is actually a physical cause for your mental or emotional instability.

So, remember that June (and every moon!) is just as good as May for awareness of your mental and emotional health, and do make the decision today--regardless of the would-be perceptions of the people around you--to contact the appropriate professional, be it a Life Coach, Psychologist, or Psychiatrist, to address your current, ongoing, and future self needs. You owe it to you!
