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

These professional job titles are usually associated with the title of therapist’s highest qualification. For example, if a therapist attained Master in Counselling, then that therapist may choose to introduce himself/herself as a counsellor. Likewise, if a therapist attained Master in Clinical Psychology, he/she will introduce himself/herself as psychologist. Note that job title alone does not speak enough about the therapist experience and qualification. Your therapist ability to be of help relies on many factors, including but not limited to, continual professional development, therapist self awareness, the level of supervision support received, and therapist personality.
