Description

What is a Psychologist ?

Psychology is an academic and applied discipline that involves the scientific study of people, the mind, and behaviour. A Psychologist uses scientific research into human behavior and applies that knowledge in real-world situations to help decipher and understand how people act, react and interact both as individuals and in groups (like workplaces, families, married couples, etc). Think of any question about how and why people do the things they do, and the chances are that a psychologist somewhere has researched it.

Why Do We Need Psychology ?

Many of the problems faced by the modern world are rooted in human behaviour, so psychological knowledge can help us to find solutions. There is increasing recognition that mental health has an impact on physical health, and that psychological insights can help us in our personal and professional relationships and activities. Psychological work with individuals and groups has the potential to allow us all to lead more satisfying and productive lives.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is an extremely important ethical issue, as people often discuss very private and personal matters with a Psychologist. You can be assured that I will not disclose anything that we discuss to anyone without your permission.
