Life is full of challenges that include both mental and physical health problems. Issues such as perfectionism, anxiety, chronic illness, grief, depression, eating and body image problems, weight management, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder can all interfere with living a meaningful and rewarding life.
Understanding that the foundation of successful therapy is a strong therapeutic alliance, Jennifer achieves positive change by building acceptance, flexibility, self-compassion, and the ability to take action towards what’s important. With an approach that doesn’t rely on worksheets or standard templates, Jennifer integrates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with behavioural and compassion-focused approaches in her therapeutic and consultation work.
Jennifer is the author of the ACT Workbook for Perfectionism. She presents internationally and is available for public speaking, conferences, and workshops. She provides professional consultations to therapists seeking to deepen their therapeutic skills and fluency in ACT.
