Why ACT?

What is ACT?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of psychological therapy derived from the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness. It focuses on the acceptance of painful and unpleasant thoughts and feelings, allowing people to work on important goals and live a meaningful life.

Why ACT?

Our PWP sessions are based on ACT. Individuals usually stuck in a cycle of aiming to eliminate and control painful thoughts. While these actions are understandable, they tend to bring individuals away from people and goals that matter most to them.

ACT ideas can help people to re-evaluate their ways of coping with challenges and improve quality of life. In our PWP sessions using ACT, we learn how to accommodate their painful thoughts and feelings in order to turn our actions towards the things that matter to us.
