"What is a Registered Psychologist?"

Psychologists study the way people feel, think, act, and interact. Through a range of strategies and therapies, they aim to reduce distress and enhance and promote emotional well-being.

Psychologists are experts in human behaviour.
They have studied the brain, memory, learning and human development. Psychologists can assist people who experience difficulty controlling their emotions, thinking and behaviour, including those with mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, serious and enduring mental illness, addictive behaviours, and childhood behaviour disorders.

​All psychologists are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia, the national registration board, in the same way, medical practitioners must be registered. Meaning they must be competent and follow a strict Code of Conduct.​

Not all counsellors or therapists are registered psychologists. Seeing someone who is registered ensures you receive high-quality, research informed ethical treatment.
