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 and related approaches because overwhelming scientific evidence over the last 40 years show they provide 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. Be present. Open up. Do what matters.
