The Centre for Effective Living is a Psychology and Well-Being practice serving the Upper North Shore of Sydney. Established in 2012 with one Psychologist working out of Westleigh, we have grown to become a group practice with a combined team experience of over 50 years. We have become an integrative, one stop service which includes psychology, dietetics, occupational therapy and couples and family counselling.
High standards have been set in place, such that we continuously shape and challenge each other’s practice. Therefore, when you see one of us, you get the benefit of all of our collective experience. We know each others’ strengths and passions. Considering your unique situation, we will provide you with the therapist that suits your needs best.
If you or someone you love is struggling with an emotional or mental health problem, call us now to make an appointment – and take the first step in getting the support you need.

One of the most difficult tasks in the world—if not the hardest—is being a mother. A mother’s love is one of the most natural and most unconditional forms of love. It is without a doubt that mothers tend to think of their family first before themselves. Yet, all mothers are human, too, and need to look after themselves as well. Some may think that the top priority is the nurturing for their family, which is not wrong, but mothers also need time for themselves.
The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report on Australia’s Children (2020) indicated that in 2013-2014 almost 14% of 4-11-year-olds experienced mental illness, and in 2015 7.4% of 0-14-year-olds had some level of disability.
It is no surprise then that many enquiries are made for children with Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Anxiety. These children face additional challenges as they develop and grow, which often impacts their wellbeing. Understandably causing concern for caregivers.
Everyone needs some form of support, but teenagers are one of the demographics that need it the most. Teenagers need both support and knowledge as they learn to engage with the world, and parents are a vital source of information for teens for areas they are not familiar with.
Here at the Centre for Effective Living, we have put together some recommended online resources that are perfect for parents to engage with to feel better equipped to support their teen. What is more, these sites can spark opportunities to share and discuss valuable information, as teens live their lives in both the real world and the virtual world.
