|Psychology is the science of the mind. Psychological systems of our mind include thinking or cognition, personalities, emotions, perception and sensations, memory, learning, behaviour and intelligence. Psychology aims to unravel these mysterious systems so that we can understand better why we are how we are, why we like who we do, and why we act the way we do.|

|Psychotherapy refers to a broad range of practices, techniques, theories and perspectives. It is difficult to define because there are literally hundreds of different types of practices that all call themselves psychotherapy. Psychology is mainly taught in the universities; psychotherapy may be taught in university, but most trainings are offered by private organisations.|
