Do Psychologists see Psychologists?
This is a common question that we read about. Our answer is – YES, of course! A referral to a psychologist can assist with a range of issues including stress management. We believe the early stages of registration as a Psychologist in Australia can be anxiety provoking and increase out baseline levels of anxiety to a overall higher level. The typical provisional psychologists journey requires a lot of new learnings, as well as being assessed and graded by their Supervisor and AHPRA. You will be exposed to a range of new presenting problems and referral reasons, mental health challenges, strengths and a lot of your client’s stories may involve traumatic events, which can result in leaving work with a heavy load of stress. Exploring a referral to your own psychologist may assist with your early career journey.
