Psychologists utilise scientific methods to investigate the factors that influence the way that people think, feel and learn, and use evidence-based strategies and interventions to assist patients to overcome challenges they may be struggling with and improve their quality of life.

Psychologists work with a wide range of patients suffering from varying mental health disorders including anxiety and depression.

Psychologists work one-on-one with patients but they are also able to consult in a group based atmosphere also depending on the patient’s requirements.
