Clinical Health Psychology

About Us

Clinical Health PsychologyPhysical 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.
