Great to hear back from you.
I'm not really sure about the psychologists since everyone has a different therapeutic background. There's a couple of things that you could do though -
- https://www.actmindfully.com.au/free-stuff/find-a-therapist Just note that these can have psychologists and counsellors or psychotherapists, while only psychologists accept the Medicare rebate. They also have a bit of a run down on what ACT is.
- A google search with your location and "ACT" (i.e. Adelaide ACT Therapist).
If you find a psychologist that you like or who sounds good, then you can get your GP to write a referral directly to them. It's totally okay to let them know that you like the sound of ACT, but they might not be familiar with it. If they GP thinks your wasting their time, then that's the GP's problem and not yours!
You might find it helpful to write some things down about how you're feeling or bring someone along to help advocate for you? Either way, I hope that you'll find a GP that is supportive.
