Acceptance and Commitment Therapy – Dr David Wells

Dr David Wells      Quals: B Psych (Hons), Dip Prof Couns, D Psych (Clin Geropsychology).

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: sometimes called therapy’s third wave this therapy approach seeks to minimize the struggle clients have with their thoughts. When the struggle is minimised we look to our value structure to dictate our direction in our lives. ACT is proven to be effective in the treatment of depression, pain, and anxiety.

Counselling Approach: Clients find the methods for the letting go of our thoughts and identifying their own value structure as being both productive and interesting. The mindfulness methods used to help calm the clients mind are seen as greatly beneficial.

ACT is a therapy focusing on acceptance of what cannot be changed, and changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours which may be holding you back.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy- Melanie Green

Melanie Green –   Quals: B. Psych (Hons); Cert in Comm Services; AMAPS – Provisional Psychologist.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): ACT is a type of psychotherapy that encourages individuals to accept what is out of their personal control and commit to action that enriches and improves their life. It invites individuals to engage in acts that align with their values rather than attempt to suppress or avoid their undesirable thoughts and feelings. ACT has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression, anxiety, pain and many other issues.

Counselling approach: Melanie takes a collaborative and supportive approach to therapy to help individuals identify what is important and meaningful for them and uses that knowledge to guide goal setting and motivate change in her clients’ lives. She uses ACT to teach mindfulness based skills that help individuals deal with painful thoughts and feelings in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over them.

Current availability: Usually within one week

ACT – Dr Terry Olesen

Dr Terry Olesen      Quals: BA, MA, PhD (Psychology), Grad Certificate Career Development (Counselling).

ACT – Defusing from Non-Helpful Thoughts, Behaviours, Rules: Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) is devoted to helping you the client step back and see the many beliefs, memories, rules and habits which no longer serve you. Many of us don’t realise we live in an arbitrary Constructed World of Rules and Shoulds, and so it’s no surprise that many clients I see present as ‘stuck’, ‘confused,’  ‘going backwards,’ or ‘spiralling down.’

Counselling Approach: As your ACT expert guide, I will help you see your situation ‘from above,’ so you can ‘look down’ at your rules and shoulds and experience them in a new way thereby ‘defusing’ them. We will employ proven ACT techniques in order for you to experience (again) a sense of forward movement in your life.

Fees:  Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $195/hr; Bulk billing may be available for clients with a pension/health care card, or to full-time students. Please enquire when booking or full fees will apply.

Current Availability: Usually within a week; evening appointments are also available.

Practice Location:
Suite 1, 16-18 Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road, Loganholme.
