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

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.


One of the reasons for establishing the Centre was to allow Massey University doctorate psychology students, interns, and postgraduate CBT students to receive training and experience. The Centre also has a scholarship position each year for a clinical psychology doctorate student to work as an intern.

Thesis Supervision

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