NeLi (Janelle Louise) Martin first registered as a psychologist in Qld in 1991 and has worked in child protection, juvenile justice, domestic violence and organisational settings in Queensland and in the UK. She integrates psychology training with many years of Buddhist Dharma mindfulness study and practice together with Yoga Teaching and practice. She has studied, practiced and taught Acceptance and Commitment Therapy since 2007.

In her private practice NeLi primarily uses evidence based Acceptance and Commitment Training/Therapy (ACT) and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP).  These are both part of the 3rd wave, mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioural Therapies which have a strong research evidence base for effective treatment for a range of clinical conditions.

In this workshop NeLi 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 essential as places are limited. Please register via the online form by Tuesday 24th February. Your registration will be confirmed via email.

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