Ngā Paerewa


The purpose of Te Poari o ngā Kaihaumanu Hinengaro o Aotearoa (the Board) is to protect the health and safety of the Aotearoa public by ensuring that psychotherapists are competent and fit to practise. We do this by setting standards under section 118 of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003.

These standards are to be observed by all psychotherapists:

Standards are minimum-level expectations and cover a broad range of psychotherapeutic modalities.
