Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping people develop psychological flexibility and live a meaningful life in alignment with their values. Rather than attempting to eliminate or suppress unwanted thoughts or emotions, ACT encourages people to accept them as natural and inevitable aspects of human experience. Through mindfulness exercises and cognitive defusion techniques, clients learn to observe and detach from their thoughts, allowing them to respond more effectively to challenging situations. ACT also emphasises the importance of clarifying personal values and committing to actions that align with those values, even in the face of discomfort or adversity. By fostering acceptance, mindfulness, and committed action, ACT empowers people to overcome barriers, reduce suffering, and live a life guided by their true values and aspirations. This therapy is particularly beneficial for individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, addiction, or other mental health conditions that may hinder their ability to live a fulfilling life.
