The Commission of Psychologists is responsible for checking that the professional that wants to work as a psychologist has got the required qualifications, i.e. at least a Masters (formerly Bachelors degree) in Psychology.

Respect the psychologists’ Code of Ethics psychologist psychotherapist counselor

This code, that unfortunatelly is not yet available in english, defines the professional rules that the psychologist must adhere to while carrying out their profession. psychologist psychotherapist counselor counsellor

One of the main points of the Code of Ethics concerns professional confidentiality. All psychologists are sworn to professional confidentiality: under no circumstance can they give personal information about their patients to anyone else (whether it be a member of their family, a doctor or a colleague) unless the patient specifically asks them to. In other words: your privacy is guaranteed. psychologist psychotherapist counselor counsellor

The central values which are the foundation of a psychologist’s work are openness and honesty. If certain principles of your therapy or the way of working don’t suit you, you can speak to your therapist directly so that a solution can be found together. psychologist psychotherapist counselor counsellor psychologist psychotherapist counselor counsellor
