What Kenneth does
As a Counselling Psychologist, Kenneth can help a variety of problems. Some people may talk to a psychologist because they are feeling depressed, angry or anxious. Alternatively they may seek help for a chronic condition that is interfering with their physical health or psychological well-being. Others may have short-term problems they want help navigating, such as feeling overwhelmed by a new job or grieving the death of a family member. Psychologists can help people learn to cope with stressful situations, overcome addictions, manage their chronic illnesses and break past the barriers that keep them from reaching their goals.
Practicing psychologists are also trained to administer and interpret a number of tests and assessments that can help diagnose a condition or tell more about the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. These tests may evaluate intellectual skills, cognitive strengths and weaknesses, vocational aptitude and preference, personality characteristics and neuropsychological functioning.
