Clinical Supervision

We also offer specialist professional supervision for Clinical Psychologists, CBT practitioners, and other professionals working in mental health, counselling or education settings.

Please contact us if you wish to enquire about this service.

Training within the Clinic

The Centre has strong links with the Massey University Psychology Clinical Training and Advanced Training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy programmes.  The Clinical Programme expands across all three Massey campuses in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington.  The three sites work together to deliver training, practice, and research.

To ensure the highest quality of service and training the Centre normally records assessment and treatment sessions.  However, this would not happen without your knowledge or permission.   Information collected will be treated confidentially, subject to the ethical guidelines on the limits of confidentiality provided by the Psychological Society of New Zealand’s Code of Ethics and Privacy Act 1993.


The Clinic was established to allow all pre-intern psychology students each year to receive training through the clinic, as well as provide experiences for all interns and postgraduate CBT students completing their practicum. The Clinic also a paid internship positions every year for a clinical psychology intern.

Thesis Supervision

Centre staff  are able to supervise Honours, Masters, and Doctoral research projects associated with clinical research and when funded by external research contracts. Given appropriate ethical clearance, clinical data may be used as a basis for this research or the Centre maybe used as a site for data collection.
