and many others at ACT and FAP conferences and workshops in Parma Italy, Washington DC USA and around Australia.
I have also led a number of one and two day workshops on ACT for the public, and trained other professionals since 2010. I supervise other psychologists and have led the ACT discussion group in Brisbane and Buddhism and Psychology Interest Group in Queensland and Nationally in Australia. I have run a number of 6,10 & 12 week ACT courses for professionals and others since 2011. I have worked with people individually, in couples and groups on a range of issues including depression, anxiety / panic attacks, stress, anger and rage, relationships, addiction, schizophrenia, eating disorders, grief and loss, chronic pain, self esteem and confidence, performance enhancement, work stress, leadership, motivation, emotional intelligence, performance pressure. I am often inspired by the courage and persistence of people I work with.
The serenity creed sums this work up nicely:
“Grant me the serenity to
Accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can; and
Wisdom to know the difference.”
This work is about the development of that wisdom.
