The healthcare page does not list psychology as a speciality, nor psychologist as a kind of medical practitioner, and I believe this is due to the fact that legally they are not doctors, etc.

Still, given that some of them have offices which are very similar to doctor's offices, how should I tag those? Simply office=psychologist? If so, should I update the healthcare page to add this explicit mention there? Since the office page contains no mention to psychologists either, and I assume most people will end up looking for information in the healthcare page.

Taginfo has office=psychologist as the most popular value of the most obvious combinations to check.

Agreed, a psychologist practicing in a healthcare context is a psychotherapist, which is already in the speciality list. There are other sorts of psychologists -- working in academia, advertising, law enforcement, military, etc -- and I suppose one of these could end up with a mapped office. But that's not what we're talking about here.
