What to Expect

Clinical psychologists aim to reduce psychological distress and enhance and promote psychological wellbeing. They draw on a wide range of psychological models to develop an understanding of how difficulties have arisen. This understanding allows the client to develop skills enabling them to make positive changes in their lives.

Through working together, the clinical psychologist helps the client to maximise their existing strengths.This helps the client to recognise and change less helpful patterns of thinking and behaviour. In turn, this can change the way the client feels and can promote longer-term psychological health.
