Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is predominantly a mindfulness-based behaviour therapy that teaches skills for mindfully distancing from unhelpful thoughts and cultivating acceptance for difficult experiences, in order to live a values-driven life. The core processes of ACT work together to help develop psychological flexibility, which can improve resiliency, fulfilment and general well-being.

  • Mindful distancing- taking a step back from our inner experiences to observe them with acceptance, curiosity and non- judgement
