The purpose of psychotherapy
is to set people free
– Rollo May
The goal of psychological intervention is to alleviate emotional distress and enhance well-being, based on psychological theories, research and clinical assessment. Clinical Psychologists select the most suitable treatment modality and procedures that target the client's unique psychological conditions and needs. Psychotherapy is directed at managing psychological, emotional and behavioural problems, including excessive anxiety, phobia, depression, post-traumatic stress reactions, addiction, eating and weight management issues, childhood trauma, family and relationship problems, work stress, emotional distress triggered by illness, accidents or trauma.
