What we offer

Most internships begin in the third year of the Gestalt Therapy Australia (GTA) training program. Our clinic provides interns with valuable opportunities to practice their skills. Interns work with a caseload of 3 clients per week and receive fortnightly group and individual supervision. They also have access to professional development opportunities.

Group and individual supervision are mandatory for all active interns. Furthermore, interns can count all their hours in the clinic towards their PACFA registration requirements. Some interns continue in the clinic after graduation, while others return as volunteers to gain more practice and fulfill the required hours for full membership to PACFA.

Our experienced clinic staff balance the needs of both students and clients ensuring high-quality counselling and psychotherapy services to the community.

Currently, ConnectGround offers over 20 internships, accommodating more than 60 clients per week.
This opportunity to do an internship at ConnectGround is truly unique.

How to apply

It takes time to become a therapist. Students are immersed in an experiential learning process that is holistic, integrated and developmental.

After completing the first two years of training at Gestalt Therapy Australia (GTA), students are able to apply for an internship at ConnectGround.

For external graduates, it is necessary to read the information pack  before contacting the Clinic. Once you have read the information pack you can email Belinda Gibson (Manager of Clinical Services) at manager@connectground.com.au.
