Frequently Asked Questions



Do I have to attend every session or complete every Module?


Your program sounds great but I don’t have a mental illness. Is this program still relevant for me?


Your program is based on an approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy – so is this therapy?


What if I don’t wish to talk about my problems in front of others?


What if I don’t have any challenges at the moment or things that I need to work on or any tough decisions that I need to make – is this program still suitable?


​Yes. This is because each week we build on the skills learnt from the previous week. Additionally, if you are missing any of the components that we teach then you will not have the tools we consider you need in order to live a meaningful life.  

Yes absolutely! In fact, this program has been specifically designed for somebody like you; for everyday women. Our programs do focus on mental health wellbeing but are designed for mainstream audiences.  It’s important to note that mental health and mental illness are not the same thing! Mental health is something that we ALL have! And having good mental health is the same as having good physical health! For instance, you don’t go to the gym or eat healthy foods because you have a physical illness! You do it because doing those things help you have good physical health. 

So yes, our programs are about helping people with their mental health; just like it’s important to have good physical health!

​No, although you may find it to be a therapeutic experience; in that you may feel more relaxed or better about things afterwards. 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.  There is strong scientific evidence to support its effectiveness. And even though it has the word 'therapy' in its title we have designed a non-therapy group-based version, suited to the needs of the general community.

​This is not therapy, so there is nil expectation for you to share anything if you are attending any of our groups or workshops.  You get to share as much or as little about yourself as you like.  You don’t have to talk at all if you do not wish to. All that will be expected of you is to say your name! And you will still gain what you need to and work on the things that are important to you without having to share this with everyone! And of course, you have the option of doing our program online individually if you prefer!


​Yes! This program is a life skills program whereby you gain skills that are lifelong. And in fact, the great thing about learning these skills during a time when you're not struggling, means you’re more likely to remember to do them when you really need them; such as handling day-to-day challenges, and being better equipped to deal with stressful life events when they inevitably arise.

If you have any other questions, please get in touch with us.

The course will be available online for 3 months from the time you enrol. After this time you will no longer be able to access it.

With the Online Program, Sally and Pam have recorded themselves conducting the program, and are not there to answer any of your questions or facilitate discussion. Most of the content is the same, and all of the same handouts, worksheets and resources are provided that the Group Program and Workshops offer.
