Childhood Psychology

Child psychology is a specialised field that focuses on the mental, emotional & developmental wellbeing of children. Child psychologists help families and children address many of the issues associated with childhood development & even more specific concerns.

Adolescent Psychology

This is the period of change, identity exploration & formation. Some adolescents need help to sort out the questions of who they are, who are friends they can trust, how to manage raging emotions or how to survive school pressures.

Adult Psychology

Emotion is what makes us human. Suffering following a trauma or a stressful and difficult time in one’s life is only to be expected. Psychologists can help in these instances by using different types of therapy techniques.

Burnout Coaching

Supporting you to find the balance between work, family, and you-time. Providing you with the resources to be the best version of yourself.

Christian Psychologists who share CHRISTIAN FAITH VALUES

Therapy with a Christian Psychologist

Spirituality is something that means different things to different people. There is good support to suggest that having a spiritual dimension brings about some positive impact to mental health. Not everyone believes in a higher power and we understand that this is so.

Our clinicians at The Centre For Effective Living come from diverse beliefs and backgrounds. Included in this diversity are many practitioners with a Christian faith.

We offer a service to all segments of community and do not prejudice or bias our therapy. We have found that there has been an increase in the Christian community who seek out Christian Psychologists of similar faith backgrounds and to this we offer a service to those who seek a Psychologist of a Christian faith.

Christian Psychologist Sydney

The Centre For Effective Living have Psychologists who are Christians. We understand that at times you may feel that you want to talk to someone who is on the same faith page as you.  

How It Works

Therapy will not replace your church community and does not take over the role of your pastoral team, however, it can be a place where you can voice your concerns and complexities within a Christian framework and know that your Psychologist will understand where you are coming from.

Clergy & Missions

We have a focus on helping vocational ministry workers to prevent burn-out, extend ministry longevity and help individuals and families through the unique (and often hidden) landscape of full-time vocational ministry. We have worked with missions agencies, bible colleges and churches to understand the unique needs and challenges staff and family face.

Marriage, Family & Kids

Are important to us and we feel especially privileged to be able to offer a supportive Christian environment to strengthen families and empower the youngest among us.
