Discuss PseudoSkeptics and their Fallacies. Share strategies for debating them.
As Craig B has said, a lot of what psychics do is similar to counselling and includes advice. However, unless they are also trained as a psychologist or even as a social worker, they do not have real training in how to work with people. There is no oversight community, no standards counsel, likely no malpractice insurance, no licensing. I haven't heard of any studies done by psychics to measure the effectiveness of their counselling in a reliable manner.
While it would perhaps be unfair to say that all psychics who provide counselling cause harm, the lack of the above is cause for concern.
And again, you are missing what I'm saying and trying to dodge & parry. I was speaking of BOTH Psychiatry & Psychological practice in general -- counseling as a whole or the Emotional/Mental Health industry.
Now kindly glue the hairs you just split back together. . . (or was that a hare? If the latter, I have a grew stew recipe you may wish to try)
