Is Becoming Mum based on scientific research?

Becoming Mum is firmly grounded in the latest research in both clinical and developmental psychology.

Becoming Mum is grounded start to finish within a new Cognitive Behavioural Therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT pronounced as the word ‘act’).

In addition, I also draw upon research on mindfulness, on developing compassion, on leading an active and rewarding life, and attachment theory.

I am a research fellow at the University of Queensland and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and parenting are two of my key research interests.
