Bülent Bill Ada is on a mission to help people overcome setbacks and achieve more fulfilling lives in the wake of COVID-19 and the growing complexities of daily living.
As a Life Psychologist, Ada combines the clinical know-how of a psychologist with the transformational approach of a life coach, to provide individuals with the tools needed to conquer personal struggles.
Ada developed the FAST Therapy® Method, which fuses traditional cognitive-behavioural techniques and solution-focussed problem solving, to rapidly produce lasting results in just a few sessions. His holistic approach is tailored to each individual client and focuses on boosting emotional self-awareness, addressing triggering problems, brainstorming solutions, and applying healthy coping strategies.
The FAST® Method has been effective in helping his clients overcome the emotional and psychological challenges of a post-pandemic world by giving them skills to build resilience, creativity and mental agility.
Ada believes the key to overcoming life’s challenges is to confront them systematically. He says: “Adversities can either hold us back or push us forward. But by embracing them as opportunities for growth, we can turn setbacks into comebacks.”
Many experts predicted a “tsunami” of mental illness in the aftermath of the pandemic. And with expectations of a steep global economic recession, there is an increased risk of ongoing psychological distress, particularly among vulnerable groups.
In his practice, Ada notes a dramatic spike in cases of health anxiety, anger, depression, PTSD, OCD, insomnia, burnout, substance abuse, and others. However, he’s witnessed many instances of “post traumatic growth”, where adversity can yield positive change, recognition of personal strength, a greater sense of purpose, and appreciation of life.
His FAST® system aims to empower individuals with a similar mindset to thrive and flourish in an ever-changing, adversity-prone world.
Mental illness affects over 970 million worldwide each year and is the leading cause of disability, surpassing diabetes, cancer, and heart disease combined (WHO, 2022). Ada’s practice and mental health services are more vital than ever in helping people overcome these challenges.
If you are struggling with mental or emotional difficulties and want to reclaim your life, Ada’s practice, Life Psychologists, offers services in Sydney, Australia and worldwide through online or telehealth programs.
