What is a Registered Psychologist?

A Psychologist is someone who has met the requirements of the Australian Board of Psychology.

Generally, the Board of Psychology requires a person seeking registration as a Psychologist to have completed four years of study, usually at Honours level plus 2 years of supervised practice.

Psychologists in Australia are then required to maintain their registration status by maintaining a regular course of professional development and supervision (whereby a qualified senior Psychologist works with the Psychologist to assess, discuss and enhance their clinical work). Working Psychologists are also required to maintain professional indemnity insurance.

The Australian Psychological Society (APS) is the professional body for psychologists, providing psychologists with professional advice, opportunities for educational and professional development, and high ethical standards.

What is a Clinical Psychologist?

Persons who have successfully completed a Masters or Doctorate Degree in Clinical, Forensic or Organisational Psychology, as well as undertaken between 1-2 yrs of supervised clinical practice, can seek registration as a Clinical Psychologist in Australia.

Psychologists who have met the requirements set down by the Psychology Board of Australia can seek endorsement as a Clinical Psychologist or as a Counselling Psychologist. Clinical Psychologist are also able to apply for membership to the APS College of Clinical Psychologists.
