What Is The Work Of A Psychologist? CBT Kenya

Essentially, psychology helps explain why people act the way they do. Psychologists seek to understand and explain thoughts, emotions, feelings, and behaviour.

With this kind of professional insight, a psychologist can help people improve their decision making, stress management and behaviour.

Psychologists work in a wide variety of industries and fields, from education and criminal justice to marketing and politics.

Other psychologists work only with patients or clients. They work as part of a healthcare team, collaborating with physicians and others to treat illness and promote overall wellness.

Why are Psychologists important?

1. Psychologists Are Unbiased

Some people think it’s unnecessary to see a psychologist because they have friends and family who listen to their problems and offer advice. Your friends may have unlimited advice, but they also have a bias on the situation. Psychologists offer an unbiased opinion, as they see the issue from an outside perspective. This can be confronting, because they won’t offer sugar-coated advice, they’ll offer the truth, which can hurt at times.

2. Psychology is Based On Science

Seeing a psychologist can literally rewire your brain. CBT (Cognitive Brain Therapy) targets patients with depression, anxiety and schizophrenia, teaching them new ways to think which ultimately, rewires their brain.

3. Psychologists Help You Understand Your Behaviors

A greater understanding of how humans think and behave will help you communicate better. You will be more effective in understanding what a person really means by gestures and actions.

By understanding more about yourself and your personality, you can gain more self-confidence. You will learn more about your weaknesses and can build on them.

4. Psychologists Help You Understand The Mind-Body Connection

Mental health may not be taken as seriously as physical health, but often the two go hand in hand. Sometimes issues can arise from a lack of sleep, which can actually affect way more than you realise. Psychologists can help you reduce your drinking habits, change your eating habits and learn self-care practices like meditation.
