What is a clinical psychologist? Clinical psychologists have specialist training in the assessment and treatment of mental health problems. Their training and expertise gives them skills to address complex psychological problems and tailor treatment programs according to the specific needs of the individual client. Most clinical psychologists develop expertise in specific areas as well as being extensively trained in the areas of depression and anxiety. Tracey's specialist area is psychological trauma.
