My Story

Welcome, I’m Sharyn Renshaw, a compassionate and dedicated Psychologist, working within the realm of Exclusive Wellbeing in the vibrant heart of Parramatta, Western Sydney. With a remarkable journey spanning over two decades across diverse industries such as psychological recovery, employment placement, rehabilitation, intellectual disability, and aged care, my approach is deeply informed not just by my professional experiences but also by the profound impact of my own lived journey. I’m continually inspired by the individuals who seek my support, and I’m genuinely excited to join you on your transformative path.

Guided by our core values of integrity, authenticity, compassion, connection, growth & development, and appreciation of individualization, I’m here to understand your current worries, concerns, and triggers. My mission is to help you navigate through these challenges, equipping you with the tools and skills needed to address and overcome them. Through attentive listening, I explore what surfaces in your life, causing difficulties, and together, we clarify and define your goals, paving a path towards profound shifts and a more meaningful life.

My work with people is firmly grounded in a strengths-based and recovery-oriented model. I wholeheartedly believe that we all possess unique strengths and qualities that can be honed and amplified, empowering us to embrace our individual journey towards meaning and fulfillment. Amidst distress, overwhelming pressures, and internal doubts, it can be challenging to remember these qualities, but my therapeutic approach aligns with this philosophy. I draw extensively upon transformative modalities such as Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to support your personal recovery journey.

My commitment to growth & development drives me to continually enrich my skills. Completing a Bachelor of Arts, Honors Degree in Psychology in 1991, I diligently fulfilled the requirements of supervised practice, achieving full registration as a Psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia. Throughout my career, I have actively engaged in continuing professional development, focusing on refining techniques in CBT, Schema Therapy, DBT, and ACT. Exploring leadership positions, I successfully completed a Masters of Management, gaining invaluable insight into the human experience within work environments and the significance of meaningful activity in shaping supportive and multi-faceted settings.

As a proud member of the Australian Psychological Society for over 10 years, I’m dedicated to upholding the highest standards as I delve into my clinical areas of interest. These include adult mental health, particularly with adults and young adults experiencing anxiety, complex trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or a Personality Disorder.

In our therapeutic journey, I strive to discover the strengths and qualities unique to you, empowering and equipping you to embark on a profound and personally meaningful life journey. I provide General Private Services, services under Medicare with attractive rebates, and support under the Department of Veterans Affairs and SIRA (Workers Compensation).

At Exclusive Wellbeing in Parramatta, you’ll find me available for bookings on Monday, Wednesday to Friday (9am to 5pm).
