It is an academic discipline which seeks to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and by researching specific cases. In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist and is classified as a social, behavioral, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and biological processes that underlie cognitive functions and behaviors. Psychologists explore mental processes and behavior, including perception, cognition, attention, emotion, intelligence, phenomenology, motivation (conation), brain functioning and personality. Psychology is described as a "hub science", with psychological findings linking to research and perspectives from the social sciences, natural sciences, medicine, humanities and philosophy.

Psychoanalysis therapy explores how the unconscious mind influences thoughts and behaviours, with the aim of offering insight and resolution to the person seeking therapy. Psychoanalytic therapy tends to look at experiences from early childhood to see if these events have potentially contributed to the current concerns or affected the individual’s life. This form of therapy is considered as a long-term choice and can continue for weeks, months or even years depending on the depth of the concern being explored. Differing from several other therapy types, psychoanalytic therapy aims to make deep-seated changes in personality and emotional development.

Psychodynamic therapy or psychodynamic counselling is a therapeutic approach that embraces the work of all analytic therapies. The aim of psychodynamic therapy is to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness, helping individuals to experience and understand their true or deep-rooted feelings in order to resolve them. It takes the view that our unconscious holds onto painful memories and feelings, which are too difficult for the conscious mind to process. In order to ensure these experiences and memories do not surface, many people will develop defences, such as projections and denial. According to psychodynamic therapy, these defences will often do more harm than good.
