Psychologists

A psychologist studies how we think, feel and behave from a scientific viewpoint and applies this knowledge to help people understand, explain and change their behavior.

All psychologists are part of the Quebec Order of Psychologists and have a permit to practice psychotherapy. To verify a practitioner’s registration, use their permit number found on their personal page, and go to the following:

The following are some of the concerns for which a person may seek a psychologist’s support:

  • Mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias, etc.

  • Perception and management of pain

  • Cognitive functions (e.g., learning, memory, problem solving, intellectual ability)

  • Developmental and behavioural abilities and problems across the lifespan

  • Addictions, substance use and abuse (e.g. smoking, alcohol, prescription and recreational drugs)
