Struggling with stress, anger, depression and anxiety ……and living in the Lincolnshire area?
We would introduce you to our ground-breaking approach called Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) which draws on evidence-based psychological models. Known as Acceptance & Commitment Training (ACT) and used in Executive Coaching within the corporate world.
ACT is an innovative form of behavioural and cognitive therapy that has built upon both the strengths and the weaknesses of traditional Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
We can show that it helps people struggling with stress, anxiety, anger, depression, relationship difficulties or, those who just want to find a more rich and meaningful life to the full.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a talking therapy and gets it name from one of its core messages: acceptance what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life.
The aim of ACT is to maximise the human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life and does this by:
a) Teaching you psychological skills to deal with your painful thoughts and feelings effectively – in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you (these are known as mindfulness skills).
b) Helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you – i.e your values – then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.
c) Empowering you to move forward by taking committed action despite the struggles in life that you may have with your unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Our systematic approach towards Anger Management is defined on the lines of enhancing the communication between individuals and family members.
Whether it is social phobia, specific phobia, post traumatic stress disorder, general anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, or similar, it falls under the category of anxiety disorder.
Depression is a mental illness, which one should not confuse with the short-term emotional distress, anxiety attacks or feeling low, which also are constituents of depression.
Would you like to be less stressed and more fulfilled at work? Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a proven effective treatment for stress and work-life balance.

ACT differs from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in that instead of challenging distressing thoughts by looking for evidence and coming up with a more rational response, in ACT, the thought is accepted as a thought, e.g. “I’m having the thought that this boat is going to sink”, and then defused using a variety of techniques, which may include mindfulness, metaphors and language.
