Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, known as “ACT” (pronounced as the word “act”) is a mindfulness-based behavioural therapy that challenges the ground rules of most Western psychology. It utilizes an eclectic mix of metaphor, paradox, and mindfulness skills, along with a range of experiential exercises and values-guided behavioural interventions. The goal of ACT is to create a rich and meaningful life, while accepting the pain that inevitably goes with it. Which is different because we are used to often struggling against feeling anxious/low. We do everything to avoid feeling negatively, but at cost of what?

This style of counselling is effective with anxiety and depression, sleeping problems and other more common issues.
