Psychologist

Psychologists specialise in helping patients, both adults and children, cope more effectively with their life issues and improve their mental health.

Psychologists use evidence-based assessments to help patients understand their difficulties, guide them in coping with stressful situations or life events, and help them manage their mental and/or physical health so as to improve their lives and overall well-being. Psychologists utilise a variety of methods and therapies to tailor to each patient's needs as part of the holistic treatment process.
