Psychologists are educated in the science of how people feel, behave and react.
They provide help with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress and eating disorders.
Psychologists do not prescribe medications but use a number of scientifically-supported tests to determine the mental health and wellbeing of people.
Psychologists can specialise in a number of areas including mental health disorders (clinical psychologists), jobs and careers (organisational psychologists) and sports and exercise (sports psychologists).
We are lucky here at Bayside Health Nook to have Susan (Clinical Psychology registrar), and Kate (performance psychology).
