Clinical Psychologists are trained to doctorate level in a variety of different therapeutic approaches. They gain exposure to many different client groups in a variety of mental health settings. This exposure provides them with a broad skill-set, equipping them to work at a high level with diverse populations and problems. They can draw on a range of theories and approaches to offer unique packages of therapy to meet each individual client's needs.
All Clinical Psychologists have to be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and are regulated by their professional standards. The HCPC ensure that only therapists with accredited qualifications and who meet the required standards for proficiency and professional conduct can practice using the title ‘Psychologist.’ The British Psychological Society (BPS) is the professional body that oversees the work of qualified psychologists and provides benchmarks for professional standards of psychological knowledge and expertise.
