John founded the clinic in order to help people. Since 2004 we have been working with young people and families in greater Western Sydney for nearly 16 years!

Starting out with just two small office rooms in a building on Bessemer Street, Blacktown.

Moving to our current clinic on Richmond Rd, Blacktown in 2009 and having grown from just two clinicians to a dynamic team of child psychologists, educational psychologists, neuropsychologists, and family / disability support workers we can now help more people than ever. 

Blacktown, Macarthur, Nepean 

John & his team at JBCP are committed to providing evidence-based assessment, diagnosis and treatment for the many challenges facing children, adolescents, young adults (and their families).

Why are you a Child Psychologist?:  Knowing that the work you do with a child will reduce the impact a disorder/problem has on their lives and improves the likelihood of becoming a well adjusted young person or adult is extremely rewarding.

Why are you a Child Psychologist?: I initially became interested in child psychology as an advocate towards reducing the stigma of mental health for children. Early childhood experiences matter quite a lot and have lifelong consequences of health and wellbeing for their future. To make a difference in the trajectory of a child's future affects not only that child, but everyone in that child's life thereafter. There is no greater privilege than to contribute to a child's happiness.

Why are you a Child Psychologist?: Mental health difficulties are common - it might be what happens to us, what we learn, or what we're born with. The earlier we learn how to manage these issues, the greater impact on our trajectories through life.

Why are you a Child Psychologist?: With a passion for interpersonal relationships and a curiosity about the human experience, I was naturally drawn to the discipline of psychology. Being a provisional psychologist at John Blythe Child Psychology gives me great joy to be around children and be able to make little difference in their great journey ahead. I believe that the impact of childhood memories and experiences stays with the child lifelong and that I want to make it better in any way possible to equip children with that, one day at a time.

Why are you a Child Psychologist?: I believe all children are entitled to a happy and healthy life, and when needed the support should be available to give them the tools and assistance to help them reach their full potential. By working with children and their families, we are able to provide them early in their life with tools they can use now and also in their future. Giving them and their families the best possible chance at building a happy and healthy life.

Why are you a Child Psychologist?: Being able to work with children in the field of psychology brings me great pleasure, as we as health professionals are able to see first hand the growth in our clients. Knowing that we can provide children with the support they need is very rewarding. As they grow older they may forget who we are but they will remember what we have done collectively.

Why are you a Child Psychologist?: Because life is wonderful but also very difficult at times. Through it all, people are amazing. Sometimes we just need another person to help us see the truth, wisdom and strength that are available to us but we can't quite see yet. I love being able to help in that process, especially with kids, teens and parents, because the changes we can make early on will last for a lifetime.
