About the Psychology Clinic

We help our clients find and develop new ways to cope with life's issues by providing affordable therapy that is individually tailored to a person’s current life situation.

A clinical psychologist works with a client

The University of Auckland’s Psychology Clinic is a teaching clinic. Clients attending the Clinic see a doctoral-level student clinical psychologist, whose work is closely monitored by an assigned registered clinical psychologist on the University’s teaching staff.

Therapy is conducted in a supportive and collaborative environment that upholds the code of ethics for Clinical Psychologists identified by the New Zealand Psychologists Board. We serve people from all sectors of the community. In particular, we aim to reach individuals who struggle to access professional, affordable psychological services.

What we do

We help people with life issues such as:

  • Depression
  • Stress and anxiety problems, including phobias
  • Postnatal depression
  • Recovery from trauma
  • Unresolved grief
  • Coping with health issues

All treatment and assessments are supervised in order to ensure our clients receive appropriate and well designed interventions that meet their goals of attending therapy. In this way, we hope to offer a professional and safe teaching space that meets the learning needs of our students, while fulfilling our clients’ expectations of receiving evidence-based therapy.
