Do you specifically want a psychiatrist or will a counsellor/psychologist work for you?

Maybe, psychotherapist is a better word? I thought, psychiatrist is the one who "treats" clinical cases that are not treatable by nature (dementia, Down syndrome etc)

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who has specialised, they can write prescriptions etc. A Psychologist and similar is somebody who has (hopefully) a phd in their field. But psychiatrists do treat non congenital and non organic disorders too.
