Clinical Psychologist

A clinical psychologist is a mental health professional with highly specialized training in the psychological treatment of emotional health problems and behavioral issues. Clinical Psychologists employ a range of psychological treatment techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy to name a few.

Some clinical psychologists are also specifically trained in conducting Assessments, which can be a useful aid to clarify a diagnosis or guide treatment. Some examples of assessments include diagnostic assessments for Autism and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Psychiatrists are specialist medical doctors who are further trained in the field of mental health. As medical doctors, psychiatrists are able to make diagnoses, prescribe medications and also provide psychological treatment.

In addition, psychiatrists often coordinate and oversee the non-medication aspects of care such as psychological treatment and any background psycho-social issues.

At Mind Care Clinic, our doctors work closely with our Clinical Psychologists to coordinate treatment direction and progress for each individual case.
