    Default Opportunities for a clinical psychologist with a doctorate from Australia

    Hi

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    I am British citizen and native English speaker. I have a doctorate in clinical psychology from Australia, a DPsych (clinical). I am fully registered as a clinical psych and currently work in Australia.

    I have been thinking about moving to NZ.

    Could anyone give me some advice regarding gaining employment or private practise.

    Many thanks

    You will need to be registered - see here. http://www.psychologistsboard.org.nz...n-information2

    Once your registration is in order, it should be readily possible to get work, because there is a skill shortage. https://www.google.co.uk/#q=nz+worki...in+new+zealand

    What kind of visa do you hold for Australia?

    You are in Australia on a temp visa but you have a DPsych (clinical) awarded in Australia? How long have you been there?
