Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a proven CBT therapy that teaches you new ways to deal with the stressors of life. Whether you are facing changes in your life, loss, anxiety, depression or conflict at work, ACT helps you achieve your treatment goals.

“Developed within a coherent theoretical and philosophical framework, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.

The core conception of ACT is that psychological suffering is usually caused by the interface between human language and cognition, and the control of human behavior by direct experience.”
