Our Psychologists are highly experienced and qualified to Doctoral level. Psychology utilises science, theory and clinical knowledge to assist people who have difficulties or are in distress, to help them build and develop better health and well-being.
Psychologists are very well trained and highly specialised practitioners. Most qualified Psychologists practice their profession in the NHS or in private healthcare.
A Psychologist will talk to you, listen and ask questions. As they are doing this, they are using their clinical knowledge of people in similar situations, scientific background, and understanding of psychological theory, to help them understand you and your specific problems, issues and concerns. Once they understand these areas, they will be able to formulate a plan, and develop strategies with you that can help you deal with and address those issues and thereby improve specific areas of health or well-being.
Psychologists deal with a wide range of mental and physical health problems including:
- Anxiety disorders (phobias, OCD, PTSD)
- Cancer related mental health
- Eating Disorders
- Grief & Bereavement
- Pain & Health Psychology
- Personality Disorders
- Psychotic Disorders
- Relationship Issues
- Sexuality & Sexual Health
- Sleep problems
- Stress related problems
- Suicidality/self harm
With most of the above problems, there is a very strong scientific evidence base for the use of psychological therapies and treatments. Often, working with a Clinical Psychologist will be the most effective evidence based approach.
