Here When You Need Support
Psychologists are regulated health professionals who provide services including psychotherapy, assessment, diagnosis, consultation, and research of psychological health and problems. They are trained in evidence-based practices and follow a code of ethics that promotes respect for dignity and fair treatment. Alberta’s psychologists have advanced university degrees (Masters or Doctoral) and undergo extensive supervised training and examinations. Psychologists study the biological, cognitive, emotional, social, cultural, and environmental determinants of behaviour and through such extensive research and practice, psychologists help people cope more effectively in daily life.
