A psychologist is someone who is trained to doctoral level and specialises in a range of therapy approaches and research. Psychologists study the biological, physiological and genetic causes of behaviour, as well as the emotional, social, and developmental factors. After an in-depth assessment, the psychologist will diagnose your condition and formulate a treatment programme to help you to move forward in a more productive way.
Models of therapy they use
COMPASSION FOCUSED THERAPY
Dr David is open, warm, welcoming, compassionate, and patient which allowed me space to work at my pace. He feels very natural in his abilities and connects with you on a human level. He designed a treatment programme specific to me. I always felt supported in coming to my own conclusions which Dr David helped me to do by asking just the right questions that enabled me to explore myself, my life, and the various options available for me. I am so grateful for this opportunity as a young adult as I know his wisdom will stay with me forevermore.
