Registered Psychologists have a graduate degree in Psychology and their practice is designed to understand the nature of personal challenges. A Psychologist studies how we think, feel and behave from a scientific viewpoint and applies this knowledge to help people understand, explain and modify their behaviours. A Psychologist works to help people gain insight and explore ways to manage life’s stressors.
Fees for Psychologists’ services are covered by private payment, extended medical plans, employee assistance programs, or through government agencies or other special programs. Psychologists in British Columbia are licensed and regulated by the
College of Psychologists of British Columbia and are regulated under the Health Professions Act. Seeing a Registered Psychologist assures you that your practitioner is trained and has extensive knowledge in the areas of practice they have declared.
