What is a Psychologist?
Psychologists are experts in human behaviour.
They use scientific methods to study the factors that influence the way that people think, feel and learn, and evidence-based strategies and interventions to help people to overcome challenges and improve their performance.
Many psychologists work directly with those experiencing difficulties, such as mental health disorders including anxiety and depression.
They help people to overcome relationship problems, eating disorders, learning problems, substance abuse, parenting issues, or to manage the effects of a chronic illness.
We have 3 Psychologists at A2Z medical centre all with over 10 years of experience, each specialising in a different field.

How can we help?
Our psychologists can help with a range of health problems and use an assortment of evidence-based treatments to help people improve their lives. Most commonly, they use therapy (often referred to as psychotherapy or talk therapy). There are many different styles of therapy, but the psychologist will choose the type that best addresses the person’s problem and best fits the patient’s characteristics and preferences.
