Have you ever heard the term “Clinical Psychologist” – and wondered what it meant? How is it different to a regular psychologist? And does it matter?
To become a “Clinical Psychologist”, a psychologist must complete advanced training in an accredited qualification in the area of practice, followed by a period of supervised practice.
Clinical Psychology focuses on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of psychological, general health and emotional difficulties, including mental health issues.
