Guidance on the use of the title 'Consultant Psychologist'

07 April 2017

The purpose of the attached document is to provide clear guidance and to encourage appropriate use of the title 'Consultant Psychologist'.

These guidelines have been produced by the BPS in relation to the use of the title ‘Consultant’ by any Psychologist to describe and promote themselves to colleagues and the general public.

Their overarching purpose is to provide guidance and advice to individual psychologists, as well as to those involved in their recruitment and employment, concerning the appropriate use of the title in professional settings.

In addition they will also serve as a reference document in relation to complaints or concerns raised within the BPS or HCPC.
