From a holistic perspective, my therapy incorporates evidence-based approaches including Talk therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Utilization Theory, Attachment Repair work & Hypnotherapy.
Few sail through life without encountering obstacles of one sort or another. For the most part we adjust to challenges or emotional upset using our own internal healing systems. Occasionally though, we just can't find a way through the pain and can't understand what went wrong. At these times it is really helpful to talk with someone who is trained to notice the emotions behind your words, and it is by noticing these emotions solutions to your troubles can be found.

I approach therapy using evidence-based treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), including mindfulness techniques.
Do you find yourself feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, low mood, or unsure where to turn to next? All these feelings are completely normal and part of the human experience. The key part is that you don’t need to do this alone. Welcome yourself to a calm, safe space where you can share your thoughts and experiences openly.

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.
