Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

This approach respects clients as experts of their own experiences. It aims to promote change by allowing the client to gain a clearer understanding of their own inner thoughts, perceptions, and emotions
which allows for growth psychologically, increased self-awareness, and change via self-direction. 

This approach uses the education and practice of coping skills to overcome unhelpful ways of thinking and learned patterns of maladaptive behavior. Useful strategies include moving towards one's fears instead of avoiding them and learning ways to calm the mind and body. 

This approach aims to improve psychological flexibility - the ability to be in the present moment and to choose one's behaviors based on situation and values. To do this, clients are empowered to accept one's thoughts and feelings, choose a valued direction, and take action.
