Psychology is the social and health science concerned with people’s behaviour, thoughts, and emotions; and the biological, environmental, social, and cultural factors which influence these psychological conditions. Psychologists use a range of tools and techniques to assess, diagnose, manage and treat psychological conditions. They work in private practices, hospitals, schools, and other community settings such as prisons.

They provide counselling services in a variety of settings, and may run workshops for parents, caregivers, staff, or teachers.
