Located in one of Sydney’s oldest suburbs, at the front of the Edward Clancy Building, the Mary Aikenhead Clinic provides high quality psychological and counselling services to the community at a low cost. The clinic forms part of the Faculty of Health Sciences and is staffed by postgraduate students who are undertaking a postgraduate qualification in psychology or counselling.
The Mary Aikenhead Clinic provides holistic and person/family centred services, using a multidisciplinary approach. Staff at the clinic work closely with other health disciplines at our Strathfield campus, including dieticians, exercise physiologists, social workers and ministry professionals.
Consultation with these supportive disciplines can be sought if required, ensuring patients receive balanced and comprehensive services.
All services are overseen by registered clinical psychologists and experienced counsellors who are skilled clinicians and trainers. Psychological and counselling interventions are chosen on the basis of clinical judgement and expertise as well as current research evidence.
We welcome people from all walks of life and of all cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. We assist children and parents, adolescents, adults, couples and families.
The clinic is named in honour of Mother Mary Frances Aikenhead, founder of the Catholic Religious Institute, the Religious Sisters of Charity, and of St. Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin. Her work included the establishment of schools, hospitals and orphanages for people in need, and helping disadvantaged members of the community.
