A brief intro to Psychologists

Who is a Psychologist?

What does a Psychologist do?

A psychologist (سیکولوجسٹ) equips their patients to overcome all kinds mental and emotional problems. These mental health experts use different forms of psychotherapy to treat their patients.

For example, for cognitive behavioral therapy, experts counsel their patients into changing the problematic thinking and behavioral patterns to produce healthier outlook. It is helpful for those suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD etc.

Another type is interpersonal therapy. In it, psychologists help their patients understand the underlying problem behind their mental issues. They counsel patients into how to have healthy emotions and better relate to those around them.

Moreover, they also perform psychodynamic therapy. This entails digging deeper into the childhood memories and the subconscious, as these are often the sources of problematic behaviors. Psychoanalysis is a more aggressive form of psychodynamic therapy.
