Dr Adele Stewart
Dr Adele Stewart finished her medical degree at University of NSW in 1990. She was sent to Wollongong hospital for her internship much to her horror... and has lived and worked in the area ever since! She did general practice training in Scotland on a years sabbatical with her husband Dave and completed her training and fellowship exams in 1995 while working at Woonona Medical Practice. She also worked part time at Wollongong Family Planning prior to its demise in the late 90's.
She now works 5-6 half days per week at the practice and particularly enjoys the variety that general practice offers as well as the privilege of getting to know patients and their families so well over the years.
Although Dr Adele has closed her books to new patients she is still happy to advise on the use of diaphragms as contraception. Please phone reception to make an appointment.
Dr Adele's special interest is in Mindfulness Based Interventions. She sees one or two patients per day for hour long appointments for ACT Therapy (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and MiCBT (Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) from September 2019. She has trained under Dr Russ Harris, Matthieu Villatte and Dr Bruno Cayoun. If you are on a mental health plan (which Dr Adele can do if necessary) the out of pocket cost for these sessions is the same as for all our other appointments. Please note that MiCBT has a strong home meditation practice commitment. These appointments need to be made by phone: please specify that the appointment is for ACT Therapy of MiCBT. Visitors to the Practice are welcome. Dr Adele runs the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction courses most school tierms, please click here for further information.
She has two grownup children and enjoys yoga, meditation, qigong and reading.
