Acceptance , mindfulness and highlighting personal values are common themes in my approach.
Hello! I’m Srividya Yeleswarapu, and I go by Vidya. I have a South Asian background, but I provide counselling for people from culturally diverse backgrounds. Some of the issues I’ve encountered most as a counsellor are understanding the role of guilt in depression, managing anxiety and unhelpful thoughts, healing from burn out, improving communication in relationships, and adjusting to life changes. I find that therapy can be daunting sometimes, especially when you are meeting your counsellor online. My goal, therefore, is to create a virtual space that is informal, where you can feel safe, comfortable and un-judged.

My therapeutic work weaves together Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) infused with biopsychosocial, humanistic and evolutionary perspectives.
With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".

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 Carlton or for a Carlton 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.
