Training & Professional Development

Dance Therapy NZ offers a range of Professional Development Services, including Workshops, Training Programmes and Supervision for Individuals or Groups.


We periodically offer workshops and training in Dance Movement Therapy; Authentic Movement; and using dance and movement therapeutically with children. Workshops are available in Auckland and Wellington.

Training Programmes

We are pleased to support a partner training programme that offers a Certificate in Dance Movement Therapy plus a Supervised Clinical Placement in New Zealand. While this is not offered directly by DTNZ, its Trainers are closely linked to DTNZ, have undertaken intensive overseas training in this modality and are thrilled to be able to now share this with the NZ Community.

Experiential Therapy Groups

We offer Dance Movement Therapy Groups & Arts Therapy Groups. While some of these are focused around a particular theme or issue, other groups are open to any members wishing to engage in using creativity to support their growth and self understanding.

Attending a group can be helpful as part of Psychotherapy, Counselling or Arts Therapy Training. Please contact us if you are interested in joining a Dance Movement Therapy Group or Arts Therapy Group.


We offer consultation services to other Professionals who are using creativity, art, dance or movement in their work, or who would like to begin to integrate any of these modalities into their practice.

Our team supervise Arts Therapy students in their clinical and academic work, and are available for consultation to students, Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Doctors, Body-workers, Teachers, and other professionals or those in training.
