What is a clinical psychologist?

Clinical psychologists have been trained to understand how people think, feel and behave. They help people to change thoughts, feelings and behaviours which cause distress.

They can help adults, children, young people, families, parents and carers when they are experiencing particular difficulties in their lives.
