They often work in health and social care settings, as part of a multidisciplinary team. They use the methods and findings of psychology and psychological theories with clients to enable them to make positive changes in their lives.

    "Clinical psychologists work with people of all ages who experience mental or physical health problems. These may include:

    anxiety and depression;
    serious and enduring mental illness;
    adjustment to physical illness;
    neurological disorders;
    addictive behaviours;

    personal and family relationship problems;
    learning disabilities."
