Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of behavioural therapy that uses mindfulness techniques. Its aim is to help individuals practise self-acceptance and to embrace their thoughts and feelings, rather than rejecting them or feel guilty or ashamed about them.
ACT can be useful in addressing issues of stress and anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder. ACT can also be very useful helping clients cope where there is chronic pain or substance abuse.
