About Louise Hayes
I love writing, training, doing therapy, and diving into evolution and contextual behavioural science. Most of all, I love sharing a journey that can help all of us understand our humanity.
Training in Therapy using DNA-V & ACT
Over many years I have travelled the world, training thousands of professionals who work in therapy and counselling for adolescents and adults. I use effective science-based processes designed to help adolescents and adults grow stronger and create deeper relationships.
This training is now available for you online as webinars, pre-recorded courses, supervision, group learning communities, and written resources.
Not all Louise’s online training is paid – there are free resources available, including guided meditations, trainings, and print resources.
What you'll learn with my training
I offer training for both ACT Hexaflex and the DNA-V model. I also teach process-based therapy skills to help you work with adults and adolescents.
DNA-V is a framework that focuses on growth and development in adolescents and adults. It was developed by myself and Joseph Ciarrochi. Find out more about DNA-V.
I teach process-based skills that free you. Let go of the manuals, start where you are, and build your confidence and skill.
Join me, and your life will come alive through values, connection, and your presence of awareness.
Enrich your work and life with my courses
I would love to work with you and help you grow personally and professionally so you can help the people you serve to grow too.
With my training and courses you will learn how to enrich your work and your life with:
ACT and DNA-V
