Why Consider a Psychologist?

There are times in most people’s lives where a situation or specific problem can seem impossible to resolve and it can have many negative impacts on personal life.

Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individuals and social behaviour while also exploring the physiological and neurobiological processes that underlie certain cognitive functions and behaviours.
