Our mission is to collaboratively move our communities towards health optimisation. To do that, we need a team, with an array of skills that helps support you through any hurdles that life can throw. While our Physio’s, Chiros, Osteos and Exercise Physiologists help with the physical and often psychological challenges you can face, at times there are topics which fall beyond their scope. So what is Psychology?
As a science, psychology is the study of the human mind and its wide-ranging functions and influences. Psychological research advances our understanding of human emotion, personality, intelligence, memory, perception, cognition, attention, and motivation, as well as the biological processes that drive these human functions and behaviours.
The goal of psychology is not just to study human thinking and behaviour, but to put that knowledge into practice, to help people, communities, and society in general to solve day-to-day problems and improve quality of life.
Psychology is therefore also a profession, devoted to helping people and the community find solutions to real life problems such as improving mental health and wellbeing, learning, performance, relationships, and societal cohesiveness.
