Clinical psychologists train for a minimum of six years, including an undergraduate psychology degree and a post graduate doctorate. They are highly skilled in carrying out psychological assessments, delivering psychological therapy and also providing training, consultancy and supervision to others.
Their intensive training enables them to use established psychological theory, models and research in their work. During their training they gain extensive experience working with children and adults in a range of specialist placements.
They offer psychological therapy which has a research evidence base (such as cognitive behavioural therapy or psychodynamic therapy).
