Therapeutic Models: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Somatic Trauma therapy.
You desire to live a life that feels fulfilling and meaningful. You may feel stuck and unsure, fearful, and alone. Or perhaps at the point where you are ready to work through your trauma to lovingly allow it to find its place in your being. One of the basic needs of us as humans is connection and it is my experience that many of us are lacking this much needed sense of belonging. Together we can explore your desires, where you feel blocked & what you might begin to change to grow and thrive. It can feel challenging and you may want to give up at times ... but I am here to help you find a place where you feel most alive.

I utilise various therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CT, BT, CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).
I believe in working with each client in a collaborative manner where they can feel empowered in setting their therapeutic goals unique and relevant to their circumstances, and work towards achieving them. I view clients holistically, understanding their history and their environment, as well as their areas of strengths. While the client is in the driver’s seat, I remain present with them along their therapeutic journey. I aim to foster strong therapeutic relationships with each client by maintaining a warm and empathic approach, particularly suitable to those who are anxious or those seeing a therapist for the first time.

I primarily utilise cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy ( ACT ).
My ideal client would be someone who is motivated to change, and keen to understand their own behaviours and motivations in hopes for a more balanced life. I have a passion for understanding human behaviour, our motivations and what influences our choices, decisions, and actions whether conscious or subconscious.

Like most psychologists I use different approaches - narrative therapy, family systems, mindfulness, CBT. My main focus is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and ACT ( Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). So, some of what I do might seem familiar and other techniques may be new to you. Whatever the case, it is important that clients experience therapy as transparent - I am always ready to discuss what we are doing, why we are doing it and what the expected outcome is. The idea is to provide clients with an accepting and non-judgmental environment so they can talk honestly and express difficult emotions.

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 Parramatta or for a Parramatta 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.
