Chronic Pain Services

In conjunction with medical treatment, psychological strategies play an important role in managing chronic pain. Mindfulness and acceptance based techniques represent an innovative, empirically supported approach that can increase resilience to ongoing pain while enhancing quality of life and functioning.

My experience includes developing and co-ordinating an outpatient pain program at a prominent private mental health service in Melbourne. I am Australia’s first certified facilitator of Mindfulness-Based Chronic Pain Management (MBCPM), an empirically supported program that adapts mindfulness interventions for managing chronic pain. I also use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for chronic pain, which incorporates brief, informal mindfulness techniques and promotes valued living while accepting the burden that chronic pain brings. Additionally, I am a consultant for the Melbourne Medical Pain Clinic.
