What is Clinical Psychology?

 

It is a branch of psychology that deals with mental disorders and impairments, physical illnesses with psychological influence factors, emotional and psychological crises, stress reactions, etc.

Clinical Psychology includes:

  • Diagnosis

  • Counseling (short term)

  • Treatment (longer term)

The services I offer include:

  • Psychological counseling: psychological expertise and scientific methods are applied, with the aim of overcoming various life crises, conflicts, (everyday) problems and difficulties etc.

  • Psychological treatment: aims to alleviate and treat mental disorders and the resulting social, emotional, cognitive, physical ailments and impairments.

  • Clinical-psychological diagnosis: is the assessment of mental and behavioral problems and disturbances and represents an important prerequisite for the further treatment plan. Depending on the subject matter, the clinical-psychological diagnosis consists of an anamnesis interview and individually selected psychological test procedures on the basis of which a clinical-psychological report is prepared. A clinical psychological diagnosis can take up to several appointments, depending on the issue.
