The training and experience of our team of psychologists
All of our psychologist have completed a four-year bachelor or bachelor/honours degree followed by a two year Masters in Clinical Psychology Postgraduate Degree during which they completed intensive supervised practice. Some of our psychologists also have a Doctorate degree through completing additional independent research in psychology during their training.
All of our psychologists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and have a wide variety of experience working with children, teenagers, their families and support networks. As registered psychologists we have all met the high ethical and professional standards required by the Psychology Board of Australia and engage in initial and annual updates of education, training and professional development in the field of psychology.
As well as being fully Registered Psychologists, most of our team are also fully endorsed Clinical Psychologists. This means they have completed their "clinical endorsement process" - this is 2 years of additional training and supervised practice in the area of Clinical Psychology (the area of psychology focussed on research based treatment of mental health problems).
All of our psychologists who are Registered Psychologists but not Clinical psychologists, are currently in the process of completing their clinical endorsement training and will soon be Clinical Psychologists. It should be noted that registered psychologists can choose to complete this clinical endorsement process at any stage in their career - some do it soon after finishing their university training, and others choose to work for many years as a registered psychologist first. It should also be noted that some of our Registered Psychologists are actually more experienced in working in the field of child psychology than some of our clinical psychologists.
As you can see, we are very proud of the fact that all of our psychologists are highly skilled, experienced psychologists with a passion for working with children, teens and families.
If you have any questions about the training or experience of any of our psychologists, please don't hesitate to ask.
