What's the difference between a registered psychologist and a clinical psychologist?

Someone.health has both types of psychologists available for you: general psychologists and clinical psychologists.

All clinicians practising as psychologists must be registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) and listed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Registered Psychologists have at least six years of university training and supervised experience. Additionally, they must also participate in regular education to keep their knowledge and skills up to date. 

Clinical Psychologists must have all of the above as well as an 'area of practice endorsement' (such as sport and exercise psychology) for which they hold university qualifications and supervised training. 

Whichever type of psychologist you choose, you can expect the same quality of care, ethical behaviour and standards of practice. All Someone.health psychologists have had their qualifications and registrations verified and have been carefully selected by our clinical team to ensure they deliver the highest standards of practice.
