Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

My Approach

My Approach


ACT stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which is about accepting the things we can’t change and committing action to pursue a life of meaning and purpose.

ACT is an active therapy, or action focused approach to talk therapy. It asks you to consider the workability of your behaviours and then choose to do things differently in your life, rather than repeat the same painful cycles that keep you stuck. This requires treating your thoughts and feelings differently by creating objectivity, so that you are not defined by your problems. Then clarifying your life direction to realise your potential through committed action.
