PHILOSOPHY

The primary purposes of the College are to provide training for established mental health professionals, and other counsellors, based on a broad Psychology of the Self mode of psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and to give critical consideration to the diversity of theory and practice in contemporary psychotherapy.

Our establishment in 1995 owes much to the influence of the New South Wales Branch of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists (ANZAP) which runs a similar program.

The clinical nature of our three year Diploma Course is ensured by allocation of over half the formal teaching time to clinical case supervision, and by having personal psychotherapy as a course requirement.
