Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) seeks to help us live full and meaningful lives, whilst effectively handling the pain and stresses that life inevitably brings.

ACT is a type of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy that teaches you skills such as mindfulness and acceptance to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings and helps you to clarify what is truly important to you in your life.

A critical assumption in ACT is that pain and suffering are a normal and unavoidable part of the human experience and that our attempts to control or avoid these experiences can lead to more long-term suffering.

Accordingly, ACT does not try to change or stop unwanted experiences, but instead it focuses on helping you to increase your psychological flexibility. This is essentially about learning to accept what you cannot control and to commit to taking actions over what you can in order to improve and enrich your life.
