Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a cognitive behavioral intervention that focuses on helping individuals to accept that the feelings they are struggling with are valid and understandable in the face of difficult life situations. This acceptance allows the individual to stop avoiding or fighting these emotions and commit to feeling/accepting them.

ACT can help with:

The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) technique is based on the idea that we tend to avoid, fight or control uncomfortable feelings and past experiences, which can get in the way of making changes to improve the situation.

ACT uses your history, personal goals, and values to develop a plan and commitment to change that is unique to you.
