Diana Hill, Ph.D. is a modern psychologist, mom, and co-author of ACT Daily Journal:
Get unstuck and live fully with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She is the founder and host of the podcast show Your LIfe in Process and a co-founder of the Psychologists Off the Clock podcast, blogs for Psychology Today and offers regular teachings in compassion and ACT for clinicians and the general public. Through her online teachings, executive coaching, and private therapy practice Diana encourages clients to let go of unhealthy striving and build psychological flexibility so that they can live more meaningful and fulfilling lives. Diana practices what she preaches in her daily life as a mom of two, homesteader, and yoga teacher.
I first learned about the work for Dr Diana Hill on her ‘From Thriving To Striving Summit’. I then worked through the ACT Daily Journal that Dr Diana Hill and Dr Debby Sorensen wrote, which is a 8-week program using the core processes in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help you deal with life’s challenges and live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Diana has a way of explaining ACT in a simple and practical way so it was a real treat and honour to have her on the podcast to talk about how she ended up doing the work she does and explain a little bit about ACT.
What I found most valuable was learning that living a values-based life and choosing what’s important for us can sometimes be scary. And that can be why we avoid it. But choosing to live a life of meaning requires us to do difficult things sometimes. ACT equips us with the tools to do this and roll with life’s punches.
This was such a rich episode with lots to take away, so listen today!

This podcast is about helping you follow your passions, create goals, take action and learn the tools and techniques to live the life your heart desires.
You’ll hear interviews with women who are following their passions, the steps they’re taking and the lessons they learned along the way.
I also share my insights and experiences along the journey of following my passions and what I'm learning.
A Little History...
I started the podcast in November 2020. I was inspired to do it after hearing the recurrent fear and stress around finances from adult learners in classes about resilience that I was teaching at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The podcast was then called ‘The Financially Free Woman’. At that time, I was very much into overcoming financial anxiety, something I myself experienced after a 6-figure business debt, losing my job as the family’s breadwinner and faced with job insecurity.
Over time, I realised a common theme running through all of my podcast guests. They were following their passions, taking the steps to get there, and possessed a mindset that no matter what, they would figure it out.
Despite the mistakes and missteps along the way, they just got back up and kept going. It was such an inspiration to watch and I finally understood in my heart that the whole point of life is to do what your heart is telling you to do and use your logical brain to take the actions needed.
Since then, I've been standing on the shoulders of these mighty women and learning to better listen to my intuition, follow my passions and use my rational mind to create a life my heart desires. I share what my guests and I are learning about how we're doing this on the podcast.
I hope you’ll join us on this amazing journey!
