It really depends on the Psychology field you want to go into. My wife went to school for 4 years getting her bachelors and another 3 years achieving her PHD in School Psychology. She is now working on her Masters studying in Clinical Psychology which will take another 2 years. This will give her the opportunity to open her practice and have children as well as adults as clients.

I think it really depends on how far you want to go with it and your the state regulations where you live. Many require a Master's Degree in order to pursue you own practice, but I would start there. It also really depends on the career path you want to go. Psychology is a very open field to get into and it is within the Master's level where you tend to specialize more in an area! Good luck!
