Torrens University heritage

Jansen Newman Institute, providing fulfilling and rewarding courses in care, and part of Torrens University since 2008.

About Jansen Newman Institute (JNI)

JNI was a social sciences and relationship development school that provided students with the careful ability to listen, empathise and nurture those in care. They provided rich, hands-on counselling experience for students to provide a positive impact and successfully guide those in need through change and discovery.

JNI became part of Torrens University Australia in 2008, which led to a boost in growth for the college and the launch of a wider variety of online courses across a range of specialisms.

Rhonda Dee
Graduate, Art therapist
My study at Jansen Newman Institute has allowed me to link my ideas and creative strengths in art through the fields of psychotherapy and counselling. I now incorporate aspects of counselling, neuroscience and mindfulness into my practice and communication with others to generate greater connection across communities.
