Dr Geoff Lyons


I am a Clinical Psychologist and Senior Lecturer of Clinical Psychology. I am also a trained Shamanic Counsellor, Relationship Therapist and have extensive experience in yoga.

I have a special interest in things that are “alternative” such as spirituality and the healing power of nature. I am nonetheless a professional and well-grounded clinical psychologist focused on providing clients with high-quality evidence-based mental health care.

I have worked at various universities in Sydney teaching psychology and currently hold a tenured position as a Senior Lecturer of Clinical Psychology at a major tertiary institution in Sydney. Research is a large part of my academic career and my research reflects my own interests in complementary approaches to mental health care.

As a psychologist I am ethically bound to gather evidence on any alternative treatments I am using in addition to my standard evidence-based practices. Therefore I may invite people who receive any complementary therapies from me to participate in my research on these topics. I also frequently go “into the field” to research the mental health care work being done by other complementary therapists in our communities.

I’m a little different from your average therapist. I have the specialist skills found in all clinical psychologists but also a few skills and interests that are unique. I work with all people to provide well-grounded, open-minded and highly skilled professional support.

I provide services to adults for most common mental health issues. I regularly see clients in the afternoon and evening and also during the day on Saturdays. I can be contacted at geoff@inspiritpsychology.com.au.
