Beautiful Ocean

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?: 

 

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?:

 

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?: 

Overall wellbeing and life satisfaction are intrinsically linked with mental health and the way we interact with others. I am passionate about supporting young people to maximise their mental health and interpersonal skills to put them on a path towards satisfaction and happiness.

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.
