Why Choose to Work With a Psychologist?

Psychologists in general have approximately 10 years of post-secondary education, over 3000 hours of supervised practical training, a rigorous registration process, and the requirements of ongoing continuing education, maintenance of ethical standards and regular practice reviews.
