Working as a Clinical Psychologist in Australia

Post by alexxxxxxxxxxx »

Hello! I am a final-year clinical psychology trainee and will hopefully be qualifying in September 2024. For relationship reasons, I plan to move to Australia within the next two years.

I wondered about people's recent experiences qualifying as a clinical psychologist in the UK and then working in Australia. In the past, I have heard mixed reviews - some say that while work-life balance is much better in Australia, clinical psychology is less "developed" and specialised, making the work different from UK services.

I am also a bit worried about coming to Australia as a newly qualified psychologist, so I would appreciate any feedback on people's experiences with this!

Thank you :)
