WHAT DO PSYCHOLOGISTS DO?
Psychologists engage in practice, research, and teaching across a wide range of topics having to do with how people think, feel and behave. Their work can involve individuals, groups, families and as well as larger organizations in government and industry. Here are some of the kinds of topics towards which psychologists focus their research and practice:
mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias, etc.

rehabilitation and adjustment to disability and chronic illness
relationship between psychological factors and physical conditions and illness (diabetes, heart disease, stroke)
cognitive functions (learning, memory, problem solving, intellectual ability)
developmental and behavioural abilities and problems across the lifespan
criminal behaviour, crime prevention, and services for victims and perpetrators of criminal activity

FIELDS OF WORK
My work is based on Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Personal development is also known as personal growth, involves the growth and enhancement of all aspects of the person, the feelings the person has about himself or herself, and their effectiveness in living. It includes the development of positive life skills and the development of a realistic and healthy self-esteem. There is no one way or one program to help a person grow personally and emotionally. It may involve periodic counseling and coaching or it may involve a much longer and more intense type of therapy.
An individual with an addiction uses a substance, or engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, and nicotine, or behaviors such as gambling or binge eating. Substance use is a treatable condition and complete remission is entirely possible. Recovery, however, is often a long-term process that may involve multiple attempts.
Sports psychology is an interdisciplinary practice that explores the link between the psychological and physical factors affecting performance in competitive sports and athletic activity. Sports psychologist is licensed mental health professional who function as trainer, consultant or therapist that assist athletes from all sport disciplines. They help athletes to rehabilitate after injury, deal with anxiety, improve athletic performance and achieve their goals.
Business psychology, also known as industrial-organizational psychology, combines the science of human psychology with practical business application in order to improve the work environment for employees, improve productivity in businesses, and organize groups of people in companies. Except this, collaboration with business psychologist involves increasing customer base and earnings.
