Directory of Chartered Psychologists
This Directory is open to Chartered members of the British Psychological Society to enable them to advertise their services. All Chartered Psychologists have completed Society-recognised education and training of at least six years' duration and have demonstrated knowledge, skills and autonomous practice to professional doctorate standard.
Visitors to this Directory should note that the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is the statutory regulator for practitioner psychologists in the UK. Anyone using one of the following titles - clinical psychologist, counselling psychologist, educational psychologist, forensic psychologist, health psychologist, occupational psychologist, sport & exercise psychologist, registered psychologist or practitioner psychologist – must be registered with the HCPC in order to do so. In addition, anyone offering services within these areas must also be registered. The generic title 'psychologist' is not protected, nor are other titles.
Psychologists do not have to be registered with the HCPC in order to advertise in this Directory. Users are recommended to check on the HCPC register that a professional is registered before deciding to use their services, if these fall into an area covered by the protected titles.
