Re: Registering as a Psychologist in Australia
If you cant be registered then you are screwed. Is Australia worth it - probably not. £60k is coming up for 3 times the UK average salary - that would equate to something like $150k and you wont get that as a counselling psychologist - not employed anyway, I suppose you could work all hours that God sends and make something like that in private practice eventually. In employment clinical psychs are starting around the $80k mark, ed psychs probably $85-90k. Australia is replete with psychologists TBH and there are more to the square inch than anywhere else in the world so it is a competitive situation. It is the flavour of the month course to take in uni and so there are lots of young graduates with their masters and doctorates entering the market.
Good luck - dealing with AHPRA is a nightmare at the best of times if you do go down that route.
