Psychologist are not medical doctors and they legally cannot diagnose any medical problems in UK ( Pakistan there is no law , pharmacist pose to be doctors , psychologist pose to be drs and give wrong medications to patients and cause damage )
Psychologist can only provide therapy legally in the UK only if they have Phd in psychology.
