Psychologists assess, diagnose, and treat the psychological problems and the behavioural dysfunctions resulting from, or related to physical and mental health. In addition, they play a major role in the promotion of healthy behaviour, preventing diseases and improving a patients’ quality of life (1).
Registered psychologists are required to have a minimum of six years of university training and supervised experience, and to engage in ongoing education to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.
Broadly speaking, most psychologists provide assessment and therapy to clients, help facilitate organisational or social change, conduct psychological research, or administer psychological tests to individuals or groups (2).
