Julian McNally completed his Counselling Psychology Masters at Monash University in 1995. Since then he has worked as a psychologist in private practice and in educational, community and prison settings.

After graduation he completed training in solution-oriented hypnosis and solution-oriented counselling. He first encountered Acceptance and Commitment therapy in 2003, and since then ACT has formed the basis of Julian’s practice.

From 2006 he coordinated the Melbourne ACT Peer Supervision Group and he supervises other ACT practitioners in group and individual formats. In 2014 he founded The ACT of Living, Melbourne’s first dedicated centre for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

In this workshop Julian will introduce you to Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.  ACT is an empirically-based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies with commitment and behaviour-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. By attending this event you will receive a certificate crediting you with 3 PD hours.

Registrations are crucial as places are limited. Please register via the online form by Wednesday 4th February. Your registration will be confirmed via email.

We look forward to receiving your registration and seeing you at the seminar.
