Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

What is it?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets its name from one of its core messages: accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life.

It does this by:

  • teaching skills to deal with your difficult thoughts and feelings effectively – in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you (utilising mindfulness-based skills).


  • helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you, for instance, your values – then using that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.


  • gaining an understanding of how to access the compassionate self and your true self.

There is strong scientific evidence to support its effectiveness.
