Psychologist, MA, PsyBA - Clin. Psych
Verified
Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), acceptance and committment therapy ( ACT ), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and schema therapy are well-validated therapy approaches.
Mental health can look different for every individual. My role as a psychologist largely involves assisting clients to develop emotional resilience, as well as promoting healthy behaviour change. This results in clients living a more fulfilling life, regardless of what their current and or future circumstances present. Being able to accurately assess and treat clients in a supportive environment is central to my practice. Due to the nature of my psychology training, as well as my personal experience growing up as a 1.5 generation Korean/Asian in New Zealand and Australia, cultural responsivity is also a particular interest of mine.

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 Melbourne or for a Melbourne 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.
