Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a thoroughly researched positive psychology technology for improving the way we relate to our inner & outer world and can help us to improve our emotional health and wellbeing by boosting psychological flexibility.
Acceptance is receiving the gift of what you can learn from your mind when you’re facing difficulties, and allowing what is out of your control to ‘just be’...
Commitment is taking a stand, seeking to grow and doing what really matters to you in life.

ACT boosts psychological flexibility – the mental strength skills needed to pivot and move in a life direction even when in the presence of really difficult experiences. It is one of the most widely used and researched mindfulness-based and acceptance psychological interventions with approx. 1000 studies under its belt over the last 35 years covering everything from stress and anxiety, to performance and motivation. ACT is recognised as a significant and effective mental health intervention by official agency and country guidelines around the world, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines here in the UK and the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines.
