Acceptance and Committment Therapy
(ACT)

 ACT helps people to let go of their struggles
and lead a more productiive life.

  • ACT is the latest cognitive-behavioral therapy and can help you to identify and work with habits of thinking and behaving that prevent you from living your most valued life!
     
  • With ACT you can learn to control emotions and live a vital, productive, and happy life.
     
  • The goal of ACT is to create a rich and meaningful life while at the same time accepting the pain that inevitably comes with our lives. 
     
  •  ACT is about changing your relationship to your thoughts, feelings, and memories and learning to be able to just notice, accept and embrace these. 
     
  • ACT is less about making anxiety or depression go away and more about getting you untangled from thoughts, feelings, and reactions you have and getting you moving in a direction that is important for you.
