Inspirit Psychology was initially started in 2013 by Sutherland Shire clinical psychologist, Geoff Lyons. Initially the practice started as a side venture while Geoff was working in palliative care. He loved the hospital palliative care unit he worked in but was curious about the field of “integrative health”, which essentially is the integration of complementary health approaches into mental health care. Starting his own private practice was the best way for him to explore the use of complementary approaches, such as meditation and nutrition, along with psychology. In 2013 the practice opened for a brief time in Crows Nest before moving to the suburb of Sutherland in the Sutherland Shire of Sydney. At that time Inspirit Psychology was the only clinical psychologist practice in the Sutherland Shire integrating complementary therapies into its services (something fairly common these days). The practice has stayed in Sutherland since 2013 and remained a stable source of support and wellness for the Sutherland Shire community. Over the years several other associates have joined the ranks to provide holistic care to the Sutherland Shire and Sydney area.
