What is a Psychologist and What Do They Do?

"A psychologist studies how we think, feel and behave from a scientific viewpoint and applies this knowledge to help people understand, explain and change their behavior."


Canadian Psychological Association, 2016


Psychologists have expertise in all aspects of psychological functioning, including cognitive, emotional, behavioral, spiritual, and intellectual dimensions. Psychologists assess, advise and assist people to improve their life adjustment and functioning.
