Mindwise Psychology Illawarra is a team of registered psychologists in Wollongong, specialising in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and other psychotherapies grounded in mindfulness and yoga.


At certain times in life we come to a crossroads. Perhaps we find ourselves there because something happens in our lives – such as an injury, or separation from partner or job. Or maybe the crossroad is more about how we are within ourselves: it seems that something about how we are living our lives has to change, even if we are unsure what or how.

Change is an opportunity. It may be – and it often is – that pain and suffering are the motivator for the change; but nevertheless it is an opportunity. It is this sense of opportunity and growth that makes this work exciting and satisfying, even whilst it may feel scary or bewildering being at a crossroad.

If you decide to let us share a little piece of your journey, we would be honoured. How ever you are when you arrive is just fine: no need to present yourself as ‘together’ or ‘normal’ when you come to see us. There’s a quote we like a lot from a famous psychiatrist named Alfred Adler:

“The only normal people are the ones you don’t know very well”.

– We hope to get to know you better than that!
