Clinical Psychology

Clinical PsychologyA Clinical Psychologist helps you to assess, diagnose and manage problems with emotions, behaviour or interpersonal relationships. By regaining balance in your emotional state, you will lead a happier life.

With a minimum of six years university training, Psychologists deliver evidence-based techniques and specialised therapies to help people manage their lives.

Who can benefit from Psychology?

Psychologists are not just experts at understanding and assisting with mental illness, they support all kinds of people.  The aim of psychological treatment is to improve overall functioning and to encourage both physical and mental health across all areas of life.

What is Psychology?

Psychology is based on talking through your concerns, and frequently practicing behavioural or thought techniques over the course of a number of sessions. The length of therapy depends on the complexity of the problem.

Psychologists are trained to provide a wide range of therapies to help you with your symptoms or improve overall well-being. These therapies are evidence-based, meaning they are well supported by research.

Does a Clinical Psychologist prescribe medication?

Clinical Psychologists do not prescribe medication. However, they will recommend you see your GP or a Psychiatrist if they believe medication could be included as part of your treatment.
