What is Acceptance & Commitment Therapy?
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 value based action that improves and enriches your life. The aim of ACT (which is pronounced ‘act’) is to maximise human potential with psychological flexibility for a rich, full and meaningful life, despite unhelpful thinking.
Making room for painful feelings, urges and sensations, and allowing them to come and go without a struggle
Separating your thinking mind from your observing self
Do what works, only do what is most helpful ….Will it be effective and appropriate? Is it in keeping with your values and principles? What will be the consequences of the action?
What is important to you, what do you want to be remembered for? What is going to be written on your grave stone?
