Psychotherapy department

Known for its expertise across counselling and psychotherapy, the Psychotherapy department is part of health sciences at AUT. We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in counselling and psychotherapy, including New Zealand's only clinical psychotherapy programme at master's degree level.

Our programmes offer students the opportunity to develop the skills to facilitate personal growth or address issues like addictions, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and violence and trauma.

Research in health sciences

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across health sciences.
