What does a Psychologist do? 

Broadly speaking, most psychologists provide assessment and therapy to clients, in order to help facilitate personal, social or behavioural changes.  Many psychologist act in a therapeutic role, listening and assessing their clients concerns and life circumstances, offering support, advice and treatment to address their client's issues and needs.  Tools and strategies may include cognitive, behavioural and/or emotionally focused therapies, for example: 

  • Working with people with depression, anxiety, panic attacks and other mental health issues 
  • Evaluating the needs of unwell family members and helping the family and carers adjust to their new role and meet the needs of the unwell person 
  • Working with people to improve their performance (e.g. athletes , performers, students) 
  • Increasing resilience (and reducing burnout) during stressful situations 
  • And more... 

What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?  

According to the APA, Clinical Hypnotherapy is a "procedure during which a health professional or researcher suggests that a client, patient, or subject experience changes in sensations, perceptions, thoughts or behaviour."  (APA, Div.30, Society of Psychological Hypnosis).  
So what does that mean?  In layman's terms, Clinical Hypnotherapy is: 

  • A conversation between two people, designed to help one person (the client) make changes 
    • It is a guided process, which uses a trance like state of focus to increase a persons sense of control  
      • It works best when used as an adjunct to other psychological or medical tools
