Because of their training in psychology, technically the ships'/facility's Counsellor is considered part of Starfleet medical. The Counsellor is responsible both for advising the CO in dealing with other people and races, and in helping crew members with personal, psychological, and emotional problems.

The Counsellor is technically under the authority of the Chief Medical Officer, however the ships Counsellor is considered a separate entity and considered a member of the Senior Staff.
