Using everyshi you can increment the counter at every page shipout:

\usepackage{everyshi}% http://ctan.org/pkg/everyshi
\newcounter{pagecntr}[chapter]% New counter pagecntr is reset with an increment in chapter
\EveryShipout{\stepcounter{pagecntr}}% Step pagecntr every page

This resets pagecntr to 0 on the first page of every chapter. atbegshi could provide similar functionality.

One could also do it manually in the way shown in this example.

\parindent 0ex

Page \thepage\\
Chapter page \mychappage \clearpage
Page \thepage\\
Chapter page \mychappage \clearpage    \newchap
Page \thepage\\
Chapter page \mychappage \clearpage
