Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour, mind and thought. Psychology is commonly defined as: “the science of behaviour and mental processes”. Psychological science comes along with an enormous body of research and literature, and this work has helped in the development of psychological therapies to help enhance people’s personal well-being and mental health.
A psychologist, drawing on this research and these developed therapies, can help people of all ages facing a range of emotional or behavioural problems, such as various life transitions or changes, or personal or work-related stresses, as well as those suffering from diagnosed mental disorders.
Psychological treatment can also assist individuals, couples, groups and organisations to enhance motivation, productivity, interpersonal relationships and cope with everyday situations more effectively.
