Psychotherapy is provided by advanced students of the Master of Health Science programme. Sessions are recorded to ensure the greatest safety for the client and the best training for the student. Weekly supervision is provided by teaching staff of the Department of Psychotherapy. The psychotherapeutic practices at the clinic and its code of ethics are consistent with those set for psychotherapy by the New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists and meet the requirements of the Registration Board (Psychotherapy Board of Aotearoa New Zealand).
Psychotherapy is for people who feel they would like support for difficulties they are experiencing in their lives. The aim of psychotherapy is to increase a person's wellbeing and to strengthen their capacity to make choices in life that are empowering for him or her. Psychotherapy is client centred, in that the goals and values of the client are strongly respected.
Psychotherapy can assist with supporting people to improve self-esteem, to examine life issues, to improve quality of life, to build healthy relationships or to heal the impact of challenging life experiences. Healing or improvement occurs within the therapeutic relationship, where the therapist aims at understanding and supporting the client in a variety of ways according to the individual client's needs.
