If you're suffering from anxiety, it can feel like your stomach is always churning, your mind is constantly racing and you feel like you’re out of control. Your anxiety can show up in different areas of your life and at different times. Maybe it’s in your everyday life, or it shows up in your relationships, with money, or your work. It makes it hard for you to concentrate, to be present with people you care about and to enjoy the things you like to do. At times you feel overwhelmed and stuck like there is no way out of this feeling and you wish you could just go to sleep and wake up and the anxiety be gone.

Therapy isn't just about you feeling better. It's about empowering you in the process of change. This may involve assisting you to develop improved coping strategies, insight into unhelpful interpersonal patterns, adjust unhelpful thinking, improve emotional understanding and your ability to regulate those emotions, become a more effective problem solver, gain greater self awareness, confidence and comfort in your own skin, and to achieve your goals in a way that fits with your personal values.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in South Yarra or for a South Yarra ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Some of the most common types of mental health providers in South Yarra are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
