 Technically speaking, there isn't any such thing as a Child Psychologist. There are Clinical Psychologists, Counseling Psychologists and Educational Psychologists - all of which can specialise in children (and which pretty much have to in the case of Educational Psychologists).

 

In each of the above cases, you'd need a BPS-accredited Psychology degree (or BPS-accredited Psychology conversion course) and an HCPC-approved doctorate in the type of psychology you want to practice.

 

You also need relavant experience to even gain access to the doctoral programmes. The whole journey is fairly long and is certainly not for the feint-hearted.

"The best source of advice is the BPS website, as they accredit degrees and careers in psychology.

You might find https://www.australiacounselling.com.au/importance-your-core-relationship-needs/ helpful.

Your UG degree must be accredited to give you a GBC (they love acronyms!). If not, your master's degree must be an accredited conversion course. See the BPS website for a list of accredited courses. Any of these courses will allow you to earn a doctorate in clinical, teaching, or other areas of psychology to become a professional.
