More about Addictions. Counselling

Be supported all the way

Our students enjoy learning from people who have rich experience in these areas and who are conducting research in these fields. Our teaching staff are active researchers who participate in national and international conferences.

You’ll be part of a supportive group and benefit from interactive learning in the classroom as well as work placements on many courses.

Close connections with the sector

Our close connection to the sector offers you many opportunities to do work experience, practicums, gain clinical practice and to get supervision.

We work with professional bodies such as Dapaanz and NZAC, along with industry, to make sure what you're studying is recognised, applicable and approved.

Designed to suit you

We know life’s busy. We offer full-time and part-time options at our Wellington CBD and Petone campuses, as well as in Auckland. You can also do some learning online or do a short course.
