Therapy: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of therapy that aims to encourage people to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them.

ACT develops psychological flexibility and agility and is a form of behavioural therapy that combines mindfulness skills with the practice of self-acceptance. It also promotes skills that would enable individuals live and behave in ways that are more aligned and consistent with their personal values. ACT is effective for a wide range of psychological difficulties, and it is also helpful as a life-affirming and inspirational perspective of self-determination.
