Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy focused on learning to accept one's negative thoughts, feelings, symptoms, or situations.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy employs a combination of acceptance and mindfulness strategies. Acceptance strategies help people develop a welcoming, open attitude toward their emotions, external events, and thoughts. The goal of an acceptance-based strategy is not to change or control a person's emotions but rather to accept them as they are. Additionally, it encourages a stronger commitment to positive, healthy endeavours that support your values or objectives.

Mindfulness entails paying attention to the present moment and observing thoughts and feelings without judgement. The goal of mindfulness is to be completely present in the present moment. It helps clients live meaningful lives while handling life's inevitable pain and stress.
