The APS Find a Psychologist service provides a referral to help you find a psychologist to suit your needs. Referrals are drawn from our database of more than 2,600 APS registered psychologists around Australia, covering every state and territory.
We provide an online search, a telephone service and an email referral service to the general public, GPs and other health professionals who are seeking the advice and assistance of a qualified and suitable APS psychologist in private practice.
