They are commonly referred to as "psychologists". But what exactly do we mean by that? And what's the difference between a psychotherapist and a psychiatrist ? And what is the specificity of the psychoanalyst ? 

It doesn’t necessarily matter to know exactly what’s what, since most people are basically looking for someone who really listens and can help to sort things out, and all of these specialists should do just that.

Nevertheless, some clarification may help. If these questions are bothering you, you will find some thoughts on the subject here.
