What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, maximises your chances to be fulfilled and happy by helping you to accept that there are some things in life you can’t control, and that you can engage actively in doing things that make your life better. Your therapist can use mindfulness techniques to help you to find new ways of dealing with challenges and of embracing possibilities, as well as working with you to figure out what your priorities are. In the process, you will get to know yourself better, and to more effectively manage the things that seem to hold you back.
