Psychology is the science of the mind and behaviour. Psychologists are professionals trained in the field of psychology. Psychologists in Australia are registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Authority (AHPRA) which is the Federal Government body that oversees the professional practice of health professionals. Only psychologists registered with APHRA are permitted to use the title ‘psychologist’.
All of the psychologists at Ritchie & Associates are APHRA registered. They are also all members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) which is the largest professional psychological society in Australia with over 20,000 members.
