When to Consult with a Psychologist?

Psychologists are trained to help people who have emotional or behavioural problems. If you have any of these symptoms for longer than a week and they interfere with your ability to function at home, work or school, you will require professional help. Here are some signs to look for:

  • Prolonged periods of stress and anxiety

  • Difficulty sleeping or staying asleep at night due to stress and anxiety
  • Having a hard time concentrating or focusing on the task at hand
  • Relationship problems or issues with your family or friends
  • Panic attacks
  • Social phobia (fear of being judged)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Changes in behaviour or thought process, such as extreme moodiness, irritability or depression
  • Significant changes in personality, such as becoming aggressive or withdrawn

Frequently Asked Questions

What is psychology? 
Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and experience. It’s a broad field encompassing many areas, including clinical, counselling, developmental, industrial/organizational (I/O) and social.
What are the common symptoms of depression? 
Common symptoms of depression include irritability, sleep disturbances, loss of interest in activities once enjoyed and changes in appetite or weight. Some people may also experience physical symptoms such as headaches or stomach problems.
What is the difference between cognitive and behavioural therapies? 
Cognitive therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on understanding and changing distorted thought patterns, such as faulty beliefs about oneself or one’s situation, to help improve mental health.

Behavioural therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on changing behaviours, such as dieting, exercising and other habits, to improve mental health.

What types of medications are used to treat depression?
Antidepressants are commonly used to treat depression because they increase the levels of certain chemicals in the brain that help regulate moods and feelings of well-being.
How do psychologists study human behaviour?
One way psychologists study human behaviour is by using scientific methods such as experiments or observation studies. These assessments involve asking people questions about their thoughts or feelings and recording answers on paper or video tape (electronic record keeping). 
What does psychology tell us about ourselves? 
Psychology helps us understand ourselves. It helps us understand why we behave as we do and why some people are more successful than others. Psychologists help people with their problems by assisting them in changing their behaviour. They can teach you how to make positive changes in your life, like improving your relationships with others or your health habits, such as eating better or exercising more.
