Psychologist (m/f)

Whether it involves supporting patients, detecting behavioural difficulties, advising people or recruiting staff etc., a psychologist listens, observes, evaluates and advises. Either in their own practice or within an institution, a psychologist listens to and supports clients: children, adolescents, adults, people with disabilities, prisoners etc. Their work ranges from simple advisory meetings to more complex, long-term support. Based on their theoretical knowledge and diagnostic skills, a psychologist can work in all areas of society (health, education, social, work, legal, sport, etc.) to preserve, maintain or improve a person’s well-being and/or mental health, to develop people’s skills and/or to help their social integration.
