Psychology is the scientific study of the brain and human behaviour. The discipline aims to understand how and why we do things as individuals and as groups. Through scientific experimentation and research, information can be gathered over time to help piece together the puzzle that is the human being and its behaviours.
It is a common misconception that only people with a serious mental illness should consider seeing a Psychologist. This view of Psychological treatment is not only false, but it also stops many people who may benefit from seeing a Psychologist from actually consulting with one. A Psychologist is an Allied Health Professional who facilitates the change that any person may need to make in their life to lead a happier, healthier and more fulfilling existence.
