Why Clinical Psychology?
As doctors of psychology, Clinical Psychologists are trained to the highest level, with a minimum of 7 years training in a range of therapies and in many areas and age groups. They also have research experience so that they can assess effectiveness of treatments they provide. They are therefore able to work with complex issues, and have the ability to monitor and adjust therapies so that they are effective.
Clinical Psychologist is a legally protected title meaning it should only be used by someone with the correct qualifications. They should be HCPC registered (Health and Social Care Professions Council) and preferably be Professionally recognised by the BPS (British Psychological Society) and/ or the Association for Clinical Psychologists (ACP)
