Meet Our Team

Therapists at ACT of Living, Northcote are dedicated to contributing to your growth, health and contentment. We are professionally qualified and registered and carry relevant insurance. Most of our practitioners are registered with Medicare and private health insurance companies, as well as statutory authorities, like WorkSafe and TAC so that your counselling can be as affordable as possible.

ACT practitioners at the ACT of Living also engage in ongoing training, professional development and undergo professional supervision to ensure that our work is effective and evidence-based. We are all primarily Acceptance and Commitment Therapy therapists, but most of us use other approaches when required.
