New Services


School Holiday Social Skills Training Groups

Research has shown that for children with difficulties in social skills, regular attendance in social skills interventions helps to improve their social functioning. In order to assist our clients with these needs we have established social skills training groups. Our social skills groups are run by experienced therapists and will now be offered during the School holidays.

Our commitment to service provision 


Our History

In 2006 Dr Fiona Martin, an Educational and Developmental Psychologist established a private practice on Sydney's Lower Northshore. It was her experience in government and not-for-profit health services that made her realise the lack of psychological services available to children and families in Sydney. Her vision was to establish a children's assessment and therapy service and so began her journey towards establishing SCPC. Eight years on, the Sydney Child Psychology Centre is now recognised as a leading provider of child, adolescent and family psychology services. Dr Martin is fortunate to have team of dedicated Psychologists working at the centre offering a broad range of assessment and therapy services.
