Welcome to The Resilience Centre

Each psychologist offers both support for common life experience and an additional range of specialist services for specific individual areas of need. It is not necessary to have a doctor's referral to The Resilience Centre. Appointments can be made over the phone and all calls are treated with the strictest confidence.

The Resilience Doughnut is a model for building resilience in children and young people.
This model is being used by practitioners all around Australia, and is quickly spreading to other countries, including the UK, and NZ.
The 7 factors that resilient young people and adults have in common are illustrated in the shape of a doughnut. Ways of helping a young person through stressful times and building their resilience are shown using the simple common sense formula: “If something is working, do more of it”.
The Resilience Report provides a snapshot of the specific resilience characteristics of young people and provides avenues for intervention and ongoing support.
The Resilience Report uses the Resilience Doughnut interactive tool and two validated measures to asssist reach person to take a snapshot of their own resilience.
Wise Words, Musings, Reflections, Insights & Analysis. This book from the Resilience Centre Team is a collection of blogs on a range of popular and interesting topics written by our team of Psychologists.
