I'm writing this from the perspective of somebody who has a close family member who is a psychiatrist, and is great at his job. However, I have to say, pretty much every psychiatrist that I have worked with has been terrible at psychotherapy.
I am not ashamed to admit that I have seen therapists intermittently in the past. I believe the talk therapy can be really helpful during stressful periods, or when making important life decisions. My understanding is that therapists can be either psychiatrists, psychologists, or social workers.
The worst therapist I have ever seen by far was a psychiatrist. This woman had the worst interpersonal skills I have ever experienced, and had no business being a therapist, in my opinion. Maybe she was good at medication management, I don't know. But every time I spoke with her, I felt awkward and uncomfortable.
Since then, I've talked with some patients who saw psychiatrists for talk therapy, and they all had similar experiences. Sometimes they just went for a medication adjustment, and they were frustrated that they felt the psychiatrist didn't understand them.
It makes me think that psychiatrists don't get enough training in how to do psychotherapy, and most of their training is just focused on medications. Which means that they're about as qualified to give talk therapy as I am.
