Clinical Health Psychology

Clinical Health Psychology


Physical health is intimately linked with mental well-being and vice versa. Confronting major illnesses with (real or potential) loss of functions is a highly stressful experience for even the most robust person. Staying in hospital and afflicted with physical malaise inevitably brings much uncertainty, anxiety, worries, demoralisation and adverse anticipation. Compounded by lack of information, pains, symptoms, and taxing hospital procedures, the illness experience not uncommonly precipitates intense emotional reactions, which may further aggravate the pre-existing illness.

Likewise, chronic stresses and emotional malaise aggravates a person's vulnerability for impaired functioning. Work, family and interpersonal stresses; issues with studying, child discipline, self-esteem and self-confidence; thwarted goals and disappointment; coping with adversities are all common life experience which, if handled ineffectively, may lead to adverse physical and mental health.

Clinical health psychological services are aimed towards alleviating stress and distress, building resilience and personal resources in coping with illnesses as well as inevitable stresses and strains in life. State-of-the-art clinical psychological diagnosis and treatment procedures are tailor-made to promote recovery, positive emotions and a fulfilling life.




To cater to different needs of patients, we offer a wide range of services to individuals of all ages. Services are tailored for the unique problems presented by patients, who may be facing problems in dealing with the treatment options or demands, or having mood disturbances and difficulties in adjusting to acute, chronic or life-threatening illnesses or traumatic injuries.

Besides, we offer psychological health assessments and interventions for a number of common health issues, e.g. insomnia, stress, pain and mood problems, as well as personal coaching service on request. We provide evaluation of health issues of concern, consultation on personality and vocational profile assessment, and offer sound advice and guidance that aim towards better career and life quality improvement. All in all, augmentation of strengths and resilience is aimed for therapeutic approaches to alleviate psychological symptoms and contain personal vulnerabilities.

The forms of assessment, therapy and intervention vary depending on the initial diagnosis and meticulous formulation of problems and goals. In general, our scope of services includes the following:

Assessment

  • Psycho-diagnostic interviews
  • Cognitive / intellectual assessments
  • Neuropsychological assessments of brain functions and competence
  • Personality assessments
  • Mood assessments
  • Pre-procedural psychological assessments for specific medical or surgical procedures

In-depth clinical psychometric assessments on emotions, personality, vocational interests, psychopathology, cognition, intelligence, memory, learning, aptitudes and neuropsychological functioning are also provided by the Centre.

The Centre also provides a "Mental Health Assessment and Advice Package" to people who may have concerns about their mental health. The package includes an individually tailored assessment on specific areas of emotional well-being and a consultation session with a Clinical Health Psychologist.

Treatment

In addition, we provide regular training, advice and supervision for clinical psychologists working in the community for bettering their diagnostic and clinical skills.

Positive Psychology

A positive approach is also adopted by the Centre with a strong emphasis on improving resilience at the same time that treatments are provided to relieve physical and psychological symptoms.
