This differs slightly by college, but starting from undergraduate, the time to get a PHD is going to be 7-9 years. Here's a graph showing time spent in postgrad to get a history PHD, which is comparable: http://www.historians.org/perspectives/issues/2006/0602/images/RBT-PhD-Fig1.jpg

It takes anywhere from 6 to 10 years. You will first need to get an undergraduate degree, not necessarily in psychology. You will then need to get your masters before you take a PhD course, which in itself could take 2 years or more.
