Wellington Health & Counselling


The Student Health and Counselling Centre offers high quality holistic health care. Holistic health care has a direct relationship with educational excellence and is dedicated to promoting the development of students to their highest potential. The health centre's policies and practices are designed to provide a safe, professional and private environment and to support students' goals through independent thought, freedom from ignorance, understanding of self, and by ethical conduct. The clinic is accessible, welcoming and cost effective to all Massey students.

The centre is staffed by doctors, nurses and counsellors. The medical side of the Centre operates as a satellite service of the Newtown Union Health Service. It offers a general practice service, including ACC, sexual health and family planning consultations.

The Student Counselling Service at Massey Wellington offers a confidential, professional service dealing with issues such as relationships, self-esteem, grief, anger management, sexuality and abuse. All counsellors are members of a professional body and follow the appropriate Code of Ethics.

Counselling offers an opportunity for you to talk to someone who will listen without judging you. We offer a private and confidential service and look forward to meeting you during your time at Massey Wellington.


All current students are entitled to access the health and counselling service. SHCC is part of a PHO (Capital Primary Health Organisation). Students choose to either 'enrol' with SHCC or be seen as a 'casual' patient (enrolment means that you choose SHCC to be your main provider of primary health whilst you are at University). Enrolment forms are available at the Centre or can be downloaded here.

Community Services Card

Most students are entitled to a community services card. An application form is available at the Centre. You must have already sent in your completed application form to be eligible for a doctor's appointment at the reduced rate.
