Psychologist

Psychologists have university degrees in psychology. Those who practice talking therapies are also clinically trained and will have a postgraduate diploma in clinical psychology. Psychologists are members of the New Zealand College of Clinical Psychologists and work within ethical rules. The New Zealand Psychological Society also has a very informative website.
Some psychologists use behavioural techniques such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, others more oriented to feelings use psychotherapy or counselling.
