A brief intro to Psychologists

Who is a Psychologist?

Psychologists (ماہر نفسیات) are experts who study mind and behavior. They understand how the mental health determines the condition of a person and thus help to reset these problematic thought processes. Mental health specialists talk to their patients, carry out assessments and tests to diagnose the problem ailing their patients, and devise a treatment plan accordingly.

Psychologists work in several capacities. Alongside the confines of the clinics and hospitals, they are found in schools, industries, research centers, as the comprehension of human behavior is relevant to many industries.

When should you see a Psychologist?

Psychologists are very helpful for anyone who is suffering from a drained emotional health. Lack of emotional stability leads to problem with anger management (جذباتی عدم توازن) and mood problems. Mental health experts also help people with personality (شخصیت) issues.

Specialist psychologists also help couples get through rough patches in their married life, through marriage counselling. Certain people also have performance anxiety, that leads to sexual dysfunction, which too has a negative impact on their relationship. Psychologists can help people overcome their aversion and problems with sexual intercourse as well. Likewise, they also assist patients in getting over their addictions.

Many people who have suffered from loss, whether it be the loss of a loved one or a relationship like is the case with divorce or breakups, have a hard time reconciling with the reality. Heartache can then take a toll on their mental and physical health. Grief counseling (غم سے نجات) is an important tool for such people, as it enables them to come to terms with the loss and accept it.

Similarly, stress and anxiety (پریشانی و گبھراہٹ) have also become common. While it’s okay to be apprehensive before a big event like a presentation or exam etc., if the state of worry is perpetual, you need to visit a psychologist (سیکولوجسٹ) as it is not normal to be continuously stressed. It also has implications for your physical health as well; from heart disease to sexual dysfunction, chronic stress affects all facets of life.

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.

They also do dialectical behavior therapy to help people moderate their emotions better. It is an important way through which psychologists (سیکولوجسٹ) deter dangerous tendencies like eating disorders and suicidal thoughts. People with borderline personality disorder also benefit from it.

Psychologists (ماہر نفسیات) also help patients who are more vulnerable to the ruthless world. Through supportive therapy, they encourage people to get over their complexes and grow into stronger individuals. Sometimes, they also perform animal assisted therapies, play therapy with children or creative arts therapy.
