All licensed mental health professionals are held to the highest ethical standards, regardless of nationality. Most clients seeking therapy often feel more comfortable with a professional they believe they share something in common with. CaribTherapy provides a platform for Caribbean clients to connect with Caribbean mental health professionals to encourage a smooth process to achieve mental wellness.
The therapist usually uses talk therapy as a form of treatment. Typically, therapists possess a master’s degree and licensure from their state’s respective licensing boards. Therapists are usually required to complete a certain amount of continuing education credits to keep their licenses active and in good standing with their licensing boards. Psychologists provide counseling services, as well as psychological testing for schools, courts, and other entities. Psychiatrists tend to limit their talk therapy/counseling services and are typically available for medication management. If your therapist feels that you may need medication, they will provide you with a referral to a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor that specializes in treating mental health disorders with medications and other modalities. Medication therapy is not a replacement for talk therapy.
Therapists can provide support, problem solving skills, and coping strategies for a wide range of issues. Therapists, being objective, can provide new perspectives on problems that you have been struggling with. Therapists may utilize a number of treatment modalities to help you resolve issues in your daily life and get you back to mental wellness. Therapy can be a slow process, but success depends largely on your commitment to the process and implementing the skills you have learned.

Some therapists work as a team. Your therapist may consult with other counseling staff, and counseling supervisors to provide the best possible care. These consultations are for professional and training purposes only.
If there is evidence of clear and imminent danger of harm to self and/or others, therapists are legally required to report this information to the authorities responsible for ensuring safety.

A court order, issued by a judge, may require therapists to release information contained in records and/or require therapists to testify in a court hearing.
