At Talking Works, we understand how challenging life in a foreign country can be. Moving countries usually means leaving a big part of your identity behind, such as your family, friends, and profession. You may also face difficulties with language, culture, and social integration. That’s why we are here to support you and help you thrive in your new environment.

Patricia Martins, the founder and Principal Psychologist of Talking Works, understands that well. She moved from Brazil to Melbourne in 2012, after finishing her Psychology degree in 2011. She decided to validate her Psychology degree in Australia in 2018 and struggled finding information or somone who could guide her through the  process. Patricia eventually learned the steps of the process and validated her degree in Australia through the 5+1 pathway, which is a program that allows graduates of accredited psychology courses to complete one year of supervised practice and a postgraduate diploma in psychology. She firsthand experienced how difficult it can be for a person with overseas qualifications to register as a psychologist in Australia, and she has been helping other psychologists with this process.

Patricia now assists individuals who have overseas qualifications and would like to have them assessed and validated in Australia. This service includes:

  • Guidance on how to prepare applications and documents to apply for a registration in Australia
  • Guidance on how to prepare applications to migrate to Australia
  • Identification of strengths and weaknesses of each individual case
  • Support in the decision making process during the registration process.

These services are not psychotherapeutic, therefore no Medicare rebate is available.

If you want to validate your Psychology degree in Australia, send us a message.
