Often psychologists engage in their own psychological support. This is not uncommon at all. It is evident that the early stages of registration as a psychologist in Australia can increase anxiety and stress levels from time to time. The journey of becoming a registered psychologist in Australia requires new learnings, as well as being assessed and graded a Board-Approved Supervisor and AHPRA.
