Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a therapeutic practice that uses acceptance and mindfulness techniques, together with commitment and behavior change strategies to increase psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility involves being fully in the present moment and changing or adjusting behavior to allign with one's values. Participating in therapy with an ACT-trained therapist will help you discover what your values are and live a life more in tune with what you believe in. Individuals learn to accept thoughts and feelings and instead trying to get rid of them, embrace them with flexibility. People then can make commitments to live their lives in accordance to their values and accept themselves for who they are.
