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.

Parenting Advice: Relationship Matters!

Parenting Advice: Relationship Matters!

It’s no doubt that being a parent or caregiver is one of the most challenging roles in the world. You are on call 24/7 – the nurse, the counsellor, the friend, the taxi, the bank, the maid, the chef, the problem solver – going above and beyond to try to meet your child’s needs and care for them. No matter what role you adopt for your child, at the end of the day the relationship with your child is what matters most.

You know you wanted to help people, that's why you signed up to be a psychologist. Years of training you do not want to waste, and yet you find yourself struggling to help yourself against the waves of emotional exhaustion and burnout. ⠀

I am pleased to launch my Inner Circle Early Career Psychologist (less than 3 years experience) Self Care mentoring group. For 8 weeks we will meet together weekly to look at ways to fortify your energy, self care practices and ultimately your professional practice.⠀

What does this look like?⠀

*Lifelong access to my Resilience in Service course that is online and available for you to work through on a weekly basis⠀

*Every week for 8 weeks, one hour access to myself in a group setting to review and fortify self care and burnout practices (8 weeks is pretty game changing and habit forming)⠀

*By proxy, you learn how to treat burnout in others (!) a bonus of doing the program yourself, something that is not taught in clinical programs⠀

*CPD hours and a certificate to approve 24 hours (active CPD)⠀

BONUS!Bring a friend and send me an email to let me know, and you and your friend will get a 15% instant refund. Note early career means anyone with less than 3 years full registration as a psychologist.⠀

Registration is open now:⠀
