A Psychologist working on the South coast has been banned from practicing after persuing a sexual relationship with a patient.
The patient, who was born a woman but presented to the clinic as a man had a case so complex, experts argue it was beyond the skills of a psychologist.
After attending monthly sessions for sometime the pair soon entered into a sexual relationship - one which later broke down and led to the psychiatrist confessing about his actions to a colleague.
On top of being banned from practicing the psychologist will be unable to apply for new registration for five years and is prohibited from providing any health services.
