Our psychologists at Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital in Abu Dhabi are proficient in treating a multitude of mental health complaints in both adults and children.

What is Psychology?

At its core, psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. It encompasses a wide array of disciplines, exploring various aspects of human functioning and the underlying processes that shape our thoughts, actions, and experiences.

Branches of Psychology:

Clinical Psychology: This branch focuses on understanding and treating mental health disorders. Clinical psychologists work to alleviate psychological distress and improve mental well-being through therapy and intervention.

Cognitive Psychology: Investigating mental processes like thinking, memory, problem-solving, and decision-making falls within the realm of cognitive psychology. It explores how we perceive, process, and store information.

Developmental Psychology: Examining human growth and development across the lifespan, developmental psychologists study how people change physically, emotionally, socially, and cognitively from infancy to old age.

Social Psychology: Understanding how individuals interact within social contexts is the primary focus of social psychology. It examines behaviour influenced by social factors, group dynamics, and societal norms.

Neuropsychology: This field delves into the relationship between the brain and behaviour. Neuropsychologists explore how brain injuries, diseases, and neurological conditions impact cognition and behaviour.

Psychology plays a pivotal role in mental health treatment, offering therapeutic interventions for individuals grappling with conditions like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction. Through counselling, psychotherapy, and behavioural interventions, psychologists strive to enhance mental well-being.

Education and Learning:

Understanding cognitive processes has revolutionised educational approaches. Applying psychological principles in teaching methods and curriculum design optimises learning experiences for students of all ages and abilities.

Business and Organisations:

In the realm of business, psychology contributes to areas such as organisational behaviour, human resources and marketing. By comprehending consumer behaviour and workplace dynamics, businesses can enhance productivity, satisfaction, and overall performance.

Sports and Performance:

Sports psychologists work with athletes to optimise performance by addressing psychological factors like motivation, confidence, focus, and resilience. Mental skills training can significantly impact an athlete's success and well-being.

Your emotional wellbeing is very important to live a fulfilling life.
