What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a form of therapy that helps clients focus on the present moment, and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment. It aims to help them move forward through difficult emotions, so they can put their whole energy into healing instead of dwelling on the opposing sides. With the help of a licensed professional, clients can learn from a collection of coping mechanisms specifically designed for personal situations, which clients can use throughout their life to handle challenging experiences, and unexpected events.
