Associate Professor Denis O’Hara is Head of School of Counselling at ACAP.  Denis is a chartered psychologist with the British Psychological Society, associate member of the Australian Psychological Society and a registered member of the Psychotherapist and Counsellors Federation of Australia (PACFA). He has taught in several universities and colleges of higher education for more than twenty years.

Associate Professor O’Hara is a keen researcher and author in counselling and psychotherapy. Some of his research interests include hope, spirituality and psychology/psychotherapy, self-differentiation, and chronic problems of the self. He has published several books on the importance of hope in psychological well-being. 

In addition to his academic work, Denis has maintained a private counselling and psychotherapy practice for many years. He enjoys research and writing, clinical and research supervision, and providing professional development.

Associate Professor O'Hara considers that hope has long been recognised as an essential element in well-being and also in recovery from physical and mental illness. But while the therapeutic importance of hope is well known, until relatively recently, limited research has been conducted on how hope functions and how it can best be promoted.

Over the past few months some alumni have requested an opportunity to invite colleagues to our alumni sessions.  We have decided to make a limited number of places at this session available for you to invite colleagues who may benefit from attending. Registrations for these places are at a cost of $20 and are ticketed as "non Alumni ticket". Whilst the number of these tickets is limited, more tickets may be released one week prior to the event if alumni places are not filled.

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