They talk with you to help you discover any thoughts or ideas you may have that are holding you back.

A psychiatrist is a medical physician who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illnesses, including substance abuse and addiction.

a psychiatrist helps people when they are in a time of need or have a problem within themselves or in their lives.

they are medical doctors and often prescribe psychotropic drugs for patients with mental illnesses.
