Clinical psychologists have completed a minimum of six years full-time university training, which includes postgraduate study in a recognised clinical psychology-training program, a substantial research thesis, and supervised practice in health and mental health settings.
All psychologists are legally required to be registered with their local registration body. This is to ensure that they meet specified standards of competence and ethical practice. In Bermuda this is the Bermuda Psychologists Registration Council. For enquiries please contact the BPRC directly.
In addition, psychologists follow strict guidelines for professional conduct that cover client privacy and confidentiality. Ethical codes are set and monitored by the BPRC and have been developed to safeguard the welfare of recipients of psychological services and the integrity of the psychology profession.
