Why you should attend:

 If you would like to learn real life, practical and fully implementable business skills for your private practice then this one day seminar is a must. Lindsay has been a fully registered Psychologist for over 20 years and runs a very successful private practice. His success is in part due to his counselling style and part due to his past experience in marketing and sales. Learn real skills they don’t teach at University about running and building a private practice. Accessible, practical insights from a Psychologist who went from zero to hero in just 3 months of opening (as shared with Timbo Reid the #1 Small Business Big Marketing Podcast presenter and speaker). His own thriving practice in Ipswich, Queensland, operates in a relatively low socio-economic area yet delivers him a practice income well over $140k seeing clients four days per week with no reception or secretarial support.

Lindsay is a keynote speaker, psychologist, mentor, author of ‘Why Clever People Do Dumb Things’ and writer and performer of his song ‘When A Boy Becomes A Man’. 

Workshop 2

Is there more to ACT

than Mindfulness?

Exploring my 9 Step Approach to Therapy 

 

 An informative, fun filled day finding out how Lindsay applies the concepts in his book to his counselling practice. Lindsay’s book is called ‘Why Clever People Do Dumb Things’ and was launched in 2015 after 20 years of psychology practice (you do NOT need to have read the book to participate in this workshop)

In this one day workshop Lindsay will work through some simple but powerful steps to show you the metaphor and strategies he uses to help his clients, on average, double their sense of wellbeing in under six sessions. In this information and action packed day you will:

  • Develop your abilities as a “change maker”
  • Learn how to “cut to the chase” whilst still being there for your clients
  • Become comfortable asking for critical feedback from your clients
  • Release yourself from counter-transference
  • Discover how ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) can change your, and your clients’, experience of therapy
  • Manage difficult and stuck clients
  • Opportunity for collegiate discussion around this powerful therapeutic approach
  • Increase your repertoire of metaphors and examples
  • Use real mindfulness – not mindlessness

 As highlighted in my book ‘Why Clever People Do Dumb Things’. All participants will be given a free and signed copy of my book.

Why you should attend:

Lindsay has been registered for over 20 years as well as having a career in business before becoming a psychologist. Lindsay’s clients and referrers report high levels of support for his methods. The feedback scale he uses in every session averages over 36/40 across thousands of sessions. Lindsay has written Why Clever People Do Dumb Things in order to make his metaphor and process available to a wider audience. It is an accessible and manageable approach to ACT and therapy which yields powerful results. Lindsay sees more than 25 clients each week and still manages to love and embrace his practice. Describing himself as “the luckiest man in the world” Lindsay is keen to share his ideas and philosophies with his fellow practitioners. If you are just starting out in practice and unsure how you can make a real difference in people’s lives, or if you have been in practice for a while and are interested in exploring different approaches, this workshop is for you. 

Lindsay is a keynote speaker, psychologist, mentor, author of ‘Why Clever People Do Dumb Things’ and writer and performer of his song ‘When A Boy Becomes A Man’.
