Psychology

Psychologists are experts in human behaviour who can help people to improve their quality of life by working with them to understand their individual situation, difficulties and needs. Often a psychologist may work with a person to address the way they may feel, behave and react.

Psychologists study the brain, memory, learning and processes around human development. Psychological treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or mindfulness may be used as a treatment option during a course of therapy.
