Suffering is basic fact of life for all people – not just physical or psychological pain, but the agonising over painful memories, uncomfortable emotions, difficult self-evaluations, and the ways people go about avoiding these feelings and emotions.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is about teaching people to reach beyond their suffering and get active about really living. ACT centres on questions such as: "What do you really want your life to be about?" or "If you lived in a world where your life could be about anything, what would it be?"
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets its name from one of its core messages: - Accept what is out of your personal control. - Commit to action that improves and enriches your life.
ACT aims to maximise your potential to life a rich, full and meaningful life by:
Teaching you the psychological skills to deal with your painful thoughts and feelings. Helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you, and then how to use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.
