An acceptance and commitment therapy response to the Covid 19 process, with enormous thanks to Russ Harris
Who are we?
We’re a psychology practice passionate about helping our clients to achieve their goals. We are experts in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy because overwhelming scientific evidence over the last 20 years shows it provides the best possible tools to do just that.
What is ACT?
ACT stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or Training, the most modern, science-based psychotherapy. ACT uses simple, effective and proven skills to feel better and LIVE better. All of our Brisbane Psychologists are ACT experts.
How can ACT help?
ACT is about learning proven skills to help us be the kind of people that we want to be. In the same way that you can learn to cook, ride a bike or fly a spaceship you can learn to live a more meaningful life. ACT skills allow you to live life more in touch with what’s important to you.
Why Choose an ACT Trained Psychologist?
Brisbane Psychologists trained in ACT want to help you achieve your goals. Whether that’s improving relationships with loved ones, managing anxiety, or thousands more. Your goal could be achieving peak performance – ACT coaches help top AFL, NRL and netball teams, and Olympic gold medallists!
