A Provisional Psychologist is a university degree qualified psychologist registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). A Provisional Psychologist undergoes confidential mentoring from an external AHPRA approved clinical supervisor during 1 year of practice before they gain general registration. The advantages of seeing a provisional psychologist include:
- Minimal wait time for appointments and no GP referral required (but you can get one if you prefer) to allow you prompt management of your mental health.
- No limit to the number of appointments per year.
- Lower Consultation Fees.
- Provisional psychologists are up to date with the most current research and clinical management of mental health conditions.
