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.
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.
We currently have paused taking new enquiries, however you can subscribe to be on our alert list for when we have appointments available. As a bonus, you will get access to free resources from our training and education arm – The Centre For Effective Serving – once you are subscribed.
The Centre For Effective Living does not recommend waiting more than 3 weeks to see a psychologist. Please note this is not a waitlist and we cannot guarantee an appointment in the near future.
