A.C.T. Acceptance Commitment Therapy
Get in on the A.C.T. 3rd Wave behavioural therapy
What are you Stuck with? What thoughts and behaviours would you like to be released from, the ones you feel will by with you for always. You adapt, you cope, but really you wish you could shake them off, be free to see, move and feel your world in an open, present and felt manner.
A.C.T is a simple hear and now therapy that moves you towards the experience you have named, removes you from the groundhog day of repeated stuck patterns, behaviours.
A.C.T. fits very well with addiction treatment. Taking the psychology of the 12 step program, the logic and strengths and presenting them in way that is workable and receivable, in a manner and language for the 21st Century.
Your Brain is not your friend. You are not your thoughts.
You can “notice” thoughts, accept them, and still carry on moving towards your goals, unhindered by a thought that used to stop you in your tracks, or have you scrabbling to avoid situations or sensations with well worn patterns.
Values plays a large part in ACT, as do SMART goals. Stuckness is noticed, but left behind. Value based living works in the present, the here and now.
Mindfulness on top of CBT is one way of describing A.C.T.
