Training for becoming a Sex Therapist 

In NZ there is no accredited pathway to becoming a Sex Therpist.  However therapists  working in the field of Sex Therapy usually have training and qualifications in clinical psychology, occupational therapy, counselling, psychotherapy or nursing.  Experience in couple therapy is an advantage.  Therapists usually undertake post graduate training in psychosexual therapy.

STNZ offer a full training programme when joining our national team.  Expressions of interest are welcome, please contact either Ally or Paula
