What is Psychology?  

Psychology is a science that focuses on mental states and the way in which they influence our behaviour. It closely examines communication, memory, thought processes and emotions in an effort to understand what makes people and other animals tick, which in turn helps us address our problems with more confidence. 

Put simply, psychology is the science of the mind. It examines and analyses the output of the human brain, the universe’s most complex machine. Psychology has four main goals: to describe, explain, predict, and change people’s mental processes and behaviours. This involves creating and testing theories that help explain how we interact with each other and the world around us. Psychologists also explore the way biological and social factors influence our behaviour, and how behaviour differs between cultures, societies and individuals. It looks into the ways we perceive, think and learn, taking into account verbal and non-verbal communications. It studies how our mental abilities change as we age and grow, and pins down the basis of our motivations. No wonder so many psychology graduates go on to work in healthcare. 

When should you see a Psychologist?

A psychologist can help you cope better with a variety of difficult circumstances. Bereavement and loss are common reasons to seek help, as are stress and anxiety, phobias, depression, family and relationship problems, issues at work, bad habits and addictions, and mental disorders. Psychology can help you feel and perform better in all sorts of contexts. 

Talking to someone who listens well can be incredibly powerful and empowering, which is why psychologists are trained to be excellent listeners. You could see a psychologist as a handy member of your healthcare toolkit. They help you achieve and maintain a clear mind, which helps you cope better with life’s challenges, whether it’s managing stress at work or home, dealing with the loss of someone you love, or breaking the hold that a phobia has over your happiness. A psychologist will help you get the most out of life, avoid sliding into depression, and protect yourself against various mental health problems. A psychologist acts as an unbiased, non-judgemental pair of ears. You should find, with their help, you learn to find your own solutions.

Most psychologist websites contain information about the clinic’s fee structure. If not, contact them for confirmation of the cost before making your appointment.   

What happens at a Psychologist appointment?

Psychology is a talking therapy, so you’ll be asked lots of questions. The first step your psychologist will take is your mental and medical history. They’ll also ask for the details behind the problem you’re struggling with. Over a series of appointments, you’ll explore things together in more detail. At the end, you’ll be given a final feedback session plus a diagnostic report including detailed guidance and recommendations. 

What conditions do Psychologists treat?

The range of conditions treated by a psychologist is very wide, incorporating many different kinds of distress and discomfort.
