  • What is a Psychologist?

    It can be confusing trying to find a qualified mental health practitioner for help with a particular emotional or psychological problem. A psychologist studies how we think, feel, and behave from a scientific viewpoint and applies this knowledge to help people understand, explain, and change their behaviour.
