What is psychology?

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. It encompasses a wide range of topics, including how people think, feel, and act. It aims to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases. At Bergvliet Family Practice, our newly expanded team includes three dedicated psychologists who are committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive mental health care.
