    Psychology studies in Europe. M.A or P.H.D?

    Hi
    I have been searching for information about the various psychology degrees and certificates in Europe.
    I know that in the US you usually have to have a doctoral degree to be labeled as "clinical psychologist " or "counselling psychologist " and treat people. and that with an MA you can basically do "mariage and family counselling" etc.

    But I have not been able to find a clear qualification demands in European countries.
    What are the qualifications needed to have a permit to conduct therapy?
    what is the meaning of Europsy? and is that already the assesment methood in all european countries? can you conduct psychotherapy with a Master's degree and certain years of therapeutic experience?

    if anybody here knows anything about the european psychology market, and help me to clear this mess, I would be extremely delighted!

    Thanks

    This may be an applicable starting point:

    European Federation of Professional Psychologists ' Associations (EFPA)
    EFPA About - Introduction

    EuroPsy:
    What is EuroPsy? | EuroPsy
    EuroPsy

    As regards the UK, you may want to begin with the British Psychological Society (BPS), e.g., UK counterpart to the U.S.’s American Psychological Association (APA):

    Also, the Health Professions Council (HPC)
