What is Psychology?
Psychology is the study of mind and behaviour. Psychologists work to help people to understand the source of their difficulties and the reasons why the problems persist. Once this is understood, the person can then be helped to change.
The Awareness Centre offers two forms of psychology; counselling psychology and clinical psychology.
Counselling psychology is a branch of applied psychology that focuses on the emotional aspects of a person’s psychological wellbeing. It integrates psychological theory with therapeutic support and human connection.
Ultimately, counselling psychology focuses on the importance of the therapeutic relationship and the client’s personal experiences to facilitate recovery. This includes either brief or long-term therapy directed by a philosophy that believes in individual differences and emphasis on prevention and development across the life span.
Counselling psychologists work with children, adults, young people, families and older adults experiencing anxiety and depression arising from difficult life issues or more complex mental health problems. Life issues might include bereavement, relationship difficulties, abuse or trauma. Mental health problems could include eating disorders, or post-traumatic stress.
Counselling psychologists are Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered, and are accredited as chartered psychologists with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
