Psychology is the science of the mind and behaviour.
Clinical Psychology applies this knowledge to the assessment of individuals and families across the lifespan, from infancy to older adulthood, and in providing interventions to help with difficulties in physical health, mental health and relationships.
Clinical Psychologists complete an undergraduate degree in Psychology before gaining experience in health and social care and then undertaking a doctoral level qualification in Clinical Psychology. All Clinical Psychologists have completed training in working with children, families, adults, older adults and people with learning disabilities.
Clinical Psychologists bring together research and practice to provide highly complex assessments and interventions for people facing difficulties throughout the lifespan. They also specialise in using their psychological skills to offer consultation, supervision and training to other professionals.
