Here’s how Louise can help
Manage uncertainty, break unhealthy behaviour patterns, and reduce overwhelm when things start to feel out of control.
Clinical psychologist, academic, author, educator, trainer and speaker
I divide my time between writing, training, and clinical work using acceptance, mindfulness, and positive psychology approaches. I have trained more than 12,000 professionals worldwide in DNA-V and ACT for young people and adults. I use effective, science-based processes that help people grow stronger and build deeper relationships.

What leaders in ACT say about Louise’s work
“DNA-V is one of the most important innovations in ACT in the last several years and is arguably THE most important in work with adolescents. Louise Hayes is a master of that model and there is no one on the planet who is better at explaining it, and teaching and modelling the skills needed to use it. Louise is a worldwide treasure. I can highly recommend her training and if you attend one of them I predict you will soon feel the same way.”
