ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT)
At Ward & Associates, we utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a mindfulness-based approach designed to help individuals accept their thoughts and feelings while committing to actions aligned with personal values.
WHAT IS ACT?
ACT is a mindfulness-based therapeutic approach that focuses on acceptance and commitment to foster psychological flexibility. It helps individuals accept their internal experiences, including distressing thoughts and emotions, without judgment and commit to actions aligned with their values. It aims to help individuals develop psychological resilience and improve their overall well-being by teaching them skills to effectively cope with challenging situations and engage in meaningful actions.
HOW DOES ACT WORK?
With the help of a therapist, individuals are encouraged to accept their thoughts and emotions as normal and valid experiences. It teaches clients to detach themselves from negative thoughts and feelings, allowing them to focus on the present moment and take actions that align with their values. By practicing mindfulness techniques, individuals can gain a greater sense of self-awareness and make choices that lead to a more fulfilling life.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM ACT?
ACT is effective in addressing various mental health challenges, including but not limited to:
