I am Georgiana from Romania and currently I live in Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK. I decided to come here to work and find better jobs, more suited to me. I am interested in working as a psychologist, have earned my Master Degree in Knowing and Combating Crime - forensic psychology and I would like to know what bodies in UK or Northern Ireland do I need to go and register and what studies do you think I should consider further on, based on your clients' needs, so that I can obtain a job in Belfast.
It would mean a lot your feedback,
Thank you for your time and your consideration,
Georgiana Ciuca

Hi Georgiana,
Ideally, you will need to do a doctorate but could potentially become registered with your masters depending on the type of course you have completed and whether you have had clinical experience. The most important professional body is the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) but you could also look into becoming a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). The BPS would be the best place to go for help and advice as they can advise on courses, funding and schemes to help.
Hope this helps!
