For the past seven years, Jair has divided his time between working in the education system as a School Psychologist and counselling in private practice. Jair is passionate about working alongside young people and their families to help them overcome difficulties in a more constructive way, so they can move forward to rich and fulfilling lives as a result. He believes that by reaching out to our communities with practical interactive models of resilience like The Resilience Doughnut, we can empower people for positive change that is sustainable overtime and not just a quick fix.
Jair works primarily from a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) perspective, having completed accredited training with Dr Russ Harris, CBT Australia, The Beck Institute, and The Albert Ellis Institute. As a public speaker, he has experience presenting to small, medium and large groups, as well as with audiences of young people,
their parents, and fellow education and health professionals. He is also an accredited trainer in the 1-2-3 Magic and Emotion Coaching (Parenting Strategies with Children 2-12 Years Old) Program.
