Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)  helps you accept what is out of your personal control and commit to actions that can improve and enrich your life. With the use of metaphor, paradox and experiential exercises among other techniques you can learn how to make healthy contact with your thoughts, feelings, memories and physical sensations that you fear or avoid. You can then commit to necessary behaviour change.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)  can help people suffering from

  • medical problems (e.g. chronic pain, cardiovascular disease, poor immune functioning, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, etc.)
  • life transitions and adjustment issues (e.g. leaving a job or starting a new job, starting a new course or leaving a course, being separated/divorced or getting married, having a child, retiring from a sport, retiring from work, bereavement, transgender issues, etc.)
  • substance abuse (alcohol and drugs)
  • mood disorder (depression, bipolar disorder)
  • anxiety
  • trauma
  • phobias
  • obsessive behaviours
  • post-traumatic stress
