Standards

At Real Psychology we maintain the highest professional standards. Real Psychologists are British Psychological Society Chartered Psychologists and are registered by the Health and Care Professions Council.

Beyond our external accreditations, we also demand the highest standards of impartiality and objectivity in our professional relationships. We will always put the best interests of the client before expediency even if that is sometimes not the easiest path to follow. With this in mind, we support our psychologists who provide constructive challenge to clients, colleagues and partners.

We understand that clients and partners working with psychologists expect services to be delivered with honesty and integrity. If we believe that a client will benefit from additional services we will always outline if these services could be provided by alternative sources, such as the NHS or a local council.

Chartered Psychologists

The recognised benchmark of professional recognition for psychologists, Chartered Psychologist status can only be conferred by the British Psychological Society and reflects the highest standards of psychological knowledge and expertise.

Psychologists who are members of the British Psychological Society are bound by the BPS Code of Conduct. Psychologists who are also members of the BPS Division of Educational and Child Psychology (DECP) work within the DECP Professional Practice Guidelines.

Health Professions Council

All our practitioner psychologists are also registered by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Membership of the HCPC means that the psychologist has met the appropriate professional requirements to join the Statutory Register. Registered Psychologists work within the ethical framework set out in the HPC Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
