Welcome

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.

Why Am I So Rejection-Sensitive? 

Why Am I So Rejection-Sensitive? 

While it is true that no-one actually enjoys feeling rejected, for some of us, a sensitivity to rejection can become more than the sum of its parts – it can become a mechanism for social isolation and chronic mental health issues. If this is your experience, understanding the components that have come together to create your sensitivity is an important place to start.
