Psychologist

Psychology is the study of the mind and human behaviour in a range of situations. This includes individual and group behaviour. The mind is a complex and powerful tool which controls the way we think, act and feel and continues to exert a fascination with psychologists and other related professionals.

A psychologist is a qualified and trained professional who studies human behaviour as a means to understanding the mind and how it functions. Many psychologists specialise in a particular area, for example, cognitive psychology, and devote years of study to this.

They use counselling and therapies, e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to treat a range of psychological disorders which include anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and schizophrenia.
