Overview

Essential Info

Health psychologists’ interests are very much in line with
government health priorities and include the promotion of positive
health behaviours in adults and children, reducing obesity, binge
drinking, smoking and stress, and increasing psychological wellbeing.
Opportunities for qualified health psychologists are expected to
increase substantially.

The route to Chartered Health Psychologist status is through the
attainment of an accredited MSc in Health Psychology (Stage One
training) followed by supervised professional practice (Stage Two
training). This programme has been granted accreditation status by the
British Psychological Society (BPS) and provides students with the
knowledge and skills required for Stage One training. The course is
delivered by Chartered Health Psychologists with many years of
specialist teaching, research and clinical experience in different
areas of health psychology. Specialist practitioners contribute a
contemporary perspective as guest lecturers.

Career opportunities

Possible Career Options

Health psychologists may practise in any health context, including
hospitals, outpatient and community settings, as well as in academic
health research units and university departments. Their work may
involve developing and testing interventions, implementing healthy
behaviour with individuals or groups using evidence-based methods such
as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), or conducting and evaluating
effective health promotion campaigns. The BPS states that there has
been a considerable growth in interest in the practice areas of health
psychologists in recent years.
