How To Choose Psychotherapy in the ACT
Dr Rogers has been vocal about his desire to build upon the positive results of the recent evaluation of ACT’s community mental health strategy, which has resulted in the establishment of a dedicated and strong mental health system. According to this evaluation, many people in the ACT require additional services, including more complex psychotherapy and more access to the appropriate mental health professionals. Through the implementation of these services, the number of people suffering from mental illness in the ACT has significantly decreased. Additionally, Dr. Rogers’ expertise as a public health and wellbeing specialist will be put to use in helping to implement these improvements further into local practice. These efforts are underway, and all efforts are ongoing.
Dr Peter Rogers has been busy building upon the good work already done by his predecessors at the ACT psychotherapy practice. He has set up an impressive clinical facilities that include the world-class imaging and scanning equipment used in most major hospitals around the world. He also continues to use these same tools in order to create an environment that allows clients to fully explore their physical and mental health. These efforts have resulted in a significant increase in client intake, a marked improvement in the quality of service provided by the psychotherapy practice, and an increase in the retention of current clients. These positive developments represent a very promising future for ACT patients, and all the hard work put into the practice by Dr. Rogers and his team is a huge step forward in the journey toward ensuring that every person in the ACT can receive proper mental health treatment.
