To protect the public, the term “Clinical Psychologist” is protected and only those clinicians who have fulfilled the criteria and standards set down by the Health & Care Professions Council are entitled to describe themselves as such and to register as Practitioner Psychologists. All clinical psychologists at Facing Parenthood are registered with the HCPC as Registered Practitioner Psychologists. In addition, all our clinical psychologists are chartered by the British Psychological Society.

Chartered status “is the benchmark of professional recognition. It reflects the highest standard of psychological knowledge and is a mark of experience, competence and reputation for anyone looking to learn from, consult or employ a psychologist”
