Psychologists mainly provide care in two overlapping areas: mental health and counselling. A psychologist can help deal with a wide range of issues such as: relationship and family issues, depression, anxiety, addictions, phobias, personal crises, anger management and behaviour problems. They can help in learning skills to live a better life and to solve problems more effectively.
