Clinical psychologists deal with a wide range of mental and physical health problems including addiction, anxiety, depression, learning difficulties, relationship issues, etc.

They may undertake a clinical assessment to investigate a clients’ situation, utilizing a variety of methods including psychometric tests, interviews, and direct observation of behaviour. Assessment may lead to advice, counselling, or therapy.


Clinical psychology is the branch of psychology involving the assessment and treatment of people with psychological disorders. In addition, clinical psychologists do conduct some research and experimentation, with topics that focus primarily on practical applications (such as developing new treatments, prevention for addictions, etc.).”
