Clinical Psychology

A clinical psychologist has been trained in the assessment and treatment of a wide variety of emotional, behavioural, and psychological problems. This is done by talking with a person and coming to understand the impact of feelings, beliefs, actions, experiences, and culture on the person’s life. A clinical psychologist may provide counselling and psychotherapy, but will also draw from rigorous scientific research to ensure that treatments are effective and well-matched to the client’s needs.

To be registered as a clinical psychologist, a psychologist must have an advanced degree in psychology, and have completed two years extra practical training in clinical psychology at university. PhD level psychologists train for 8-9 years at university; Master’s level psychologists train for 6-7 years.

A clinical psychologist may work with individuals, couples, families, or groups.
