Psychologists specialise in our mental health and wellbeing and enable us to live a more meaningful life. Psychologists provide their expertise by assessing and diagnosing a range of problems, developing strategies and treatments, and offering guidance and support.
They will liaise with other health professionals, including your referring doctor/physiotherapist to provide a comprehensive analysis and mental health plan in conjunction with your physical wellbeing. Exercise and physical wellness are central tenants of most psychological treatment and mental health, thus the disciplines of Physiotherapy and Psychology complement each other extremely well.
