A psychologist is a professional trained to treat mental health and emotional challenges. They can support one on overcoming traumatic experiences, changing unhealthy patterns and improving non-desirable behaviours.
A psychologist can also help a person on dealing with mental health disorders, such as:
- Anxiety disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder and phobias;
- Eating disorders, such as anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, amongst others;
- Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder, amongst others;
- Personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder, amongst others;
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD);
- Psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia, psychotic disorder and paranoid delusions, amongst others.
As a highly qualified allied health professional, a psychologist will use evidence-based methodologies to support one in the treatment and prevention of mental disorders. Persons from all age groups can seek for psychological support, from children to elderly individuals.
