I approached the College of Professional Psychology because university left me at, in my opinion, a confused and foggy end. I didn’t know how or what to do. All I knew is I wanted to be a psychologist, and I would do what I needed to do to get there. I came across the College after one of my thesis group members began speaking about a college that could take you through to registration as a general psychologist. So I got in contact with them and the rest is history!
The College helped me by assisting me from post uni, all the way through to registration. They took all the work out of it, and left me to my studies, and allowed me to dedicate all my time to becoming the best psychologist I could be.
The result was 24 months later I am a fully registered psychologist working in an organisation as the lead in all forensic matters.
One thing I liked was their ability to take control of the administrative side, and be very clear with their roles, even in uncertain times of change throughout the Board’s rollout of new guidelines.
I found the experience, and I use this word lightly, ‘easy’. By this I mean the process was easy because The College of Professional Psychology took control of it all and left me with all the time to focus on my studies and managing full time work.
I would recommend the College to people who want to excel in their duties as a psychologist. I believe my ability to be the best psychologist I can be stems from COPP. There is no better feeling than being confident in a job that you love doing. It’s like never working a day in your life. And that comes from being well prepared, well educated, and having the formal support networks available to you, all provided by COPP. It’s there for the taking for aspiring psychologists ready to own their future.
