What is Psychology?

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. Psychologists seek to understand how people think, feel, and behave, both as individuals and in groups. They use scientific methods to study mental processes and behaviour and apply their findings to help people better understand and manage their emotions, relationships, and behaviours.

Psychology is a broad field that encompasses many different subfields, including clinical psychology, developmental psychology, social psychology, and cognitive psychology.

When should you see a Psychologist?

As you don’t need a Dr’s referral, you can come and see a Psychologist at any time! (Just make sure to book first)

You may consider seeing a psychologist if you are experiencing mental health issues such as:

  • Depression or anxiety
  • Stress or difficulty managing emotions
  • Low self-esteem or self-worth
  • Relationship problems
  • Grief or loss
  • Difficulties with work or school
  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma or abuse
  • Schizophrenia
  • Sleep problems
  • Bipolar/Personality disorder

If you are experiencing any of these issues, you may benefit from working with a psychologist to develop a treatment plan to help you improve your mental health and well-being. It is also important to see a psychologist if your symptoms are affecting your daily life, such as your ability to work, attend school, or maintain relationships. Psychologists can help you develop coping skills and strategies to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started with Psychology?

Call your local clinic today to arrange an appointment.

What does a Psychologist session include?

A psychologist session, also known as a therapy session or counselling session, typically includes a meeting between a mental health professional and a patient to discuss the patient’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.

During the session, the psychologist may use a variety of techniques, such as talk therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, or mindfulness, to help the patient understand and work through their issues. The psychologist may ask questions, provide guidance, and give feedback to help the patient explore their feelings and develop coping strategies.

What is the difference between Psychologist and a Counsellor?

One main difference is the level of education and training required. Psychologists typically have more advanced education and training, and are often required to hold a doctoral degree in psychology. Counselors typically have a master’s degree in counseling or a related field.

Do I need a referral to see a Psychologist?

No. You can seek the assistance of a Psychologist independently and self-refer.

Is Psychology claimable under private health insurance?
