Wherever there are people, a psychologist can help.
There are a wide range of areas that psychologists can apply their behavioural expertise to improve human endeavours, be it in business, education, health, sport and more.
Types of psychologists
All psychologists in Australia hold general registration with the Psychology Board of Australia, meeting high standards in education, training, supervised practice, ethical and professional standards, and ongoing professional development.
When you seek help from a psychologist, you might see a psychologist with general registration, or one who also has an 'area of practice endorsement'. From either, you should expect the same quality of care, ethical behaviour and standards of practice.
Find out more about psychologists with general registration and psychologists with an area of practice endorsement below.
Psychologists talk about their careers
The world of psychology is broad and diverse. To illustrate some of the many fields a psychologist can work in, the Australian Psychological Society has brought together some of its members to share their experiences.
