The tag healthcare=psychotherapist is used to map the office of a clinical psychologist, including psychotherapists.

Clinical psychology is an integration of science, theory, and clinical knowledge for the purpose of understanding, preventing, and relieving psychologically-based distress or dysfunction and to promote subjective well-being and personal development. Central to its practice are psychological assessment, clinical formulation, and psychotherapy, although clinical psychologists also engage in research, teaching, consultation, forensic testimony, and program development and administration.

In many countries, clinical psychology is a regulated mental health profession. In most cases, clinical psychologists do not prescribe medications.

See instead amenity=doctors + healthcare:speciality=psychiatry for a psychiatry's office (a physician who specializes in medical treatment of mental health disorders). Also see healthcare:speciality=neuropsychiatry and healthcare:speciality=child_psychiatry

Also see healthcare=counselling for a facility where health counselling is provided: e.g. dietitian, nutrition, addiction.

How to map

Set a node node placed at the centrepoint of the facility, or draw as an area area drawn around the perimeter.

Add healthcare=psychotherapist and the name=*, if there is a commonly used name.

The particular speciality of clinical psychology can be defined with healthcare:speciality=*, e.g. healthcare:speciality=behavior for cognitive behavioral therapy or behavioural psychotherapy. See other proposed values at Key:healthcare#Specialities_for_healthcare.3Dpsychotherapist.
