A psychologist is a professional with expertise in how people think, feel, and behave from a scientific viewpoint.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors with a speciality in mental health and mental disorders. As medical doctors, they are allowed to prescribe medication. Medication is often their preferred method of treatment, but some psychiatrists also provide psychotherapy. 

A psychometrist is a professional who administers and scores psychological tests as part of an assessment. They may also assist in analyzing data, interpreting results, and writing reports. They work under the supervision of a registered psychologist. The psychologist is ultimately responsible for the outcomes of the assessment (i.e., conclusions, recommendations), and for communicating diagnoses, if relevant.
