What is a psychologist?

Psychologists specialize in the study of how individuals think, feel, and behave. They collect information through interviewing, testing, surveying, or observing patients to find patterns or explanations for certain emotions and behaviours. Through this, they work to diagnose and treat behavioural, emotional, or mental health disorders and help patients cope with short or long-term difficulties in their lives.
