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 18 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, Sutherland Shire 

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?:Growing up brings along various challenges in each and every individual. I find great satisfaction in helping children and their families to uncover the difficulties that are unique to one child's development/circumstances and accordingly help them to manage, adjust and overcome.

Favourite Colour: Purple

 

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.

Favourite Colour: I love all the colours !

 

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?: 

 

Ever since I was a teen, I knew I wanted to work with young people to make a meaningful contribution to their mental health. My mission is to give children, teens and their parents the tools necessary to understand themselves and their relationships and to celebrate the little wins along the way (pun intended).

Favourite Colour: Blue

 

Why are you a Child Psychologist?:

As long as I can remember I have wanted to work with children. By helping children to learn more about themselves and their thoughts and feelings, I hope that I can make a positive impact on their wellbeing and sense of self. Growing up can come with a lot of pressures and challenges, and I want to help equip children to face these as best they can (while having lots of fun too)

Favourite Game as a kid: Monopoly 

 

Favourite TV Show as a kid: Bewitched 

 

Favourite Colour: Orange (unless it's NRL season - then it's RED & GREEN) 

 

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.
