Originally known as Comprehensive Distancing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) developed in the mid-eighties 		and is now an empirically-based psychological intervention belonging to the Third Wave CBT group of interventions.                                              It can be helpful for managing a range of physical and psychological problems.    The aim of ACT is to increase psychological flexibility thereby increasing resilience and contentment.                                                          This is achieved by exploring the dynamic connections between the six core processes of ACT, these being                                  Mindfulness, Acceptance, Cognitive Defusion, Self-as-context, Committed Action, and Values      ACT is an action-orientated therapy, over approximately ten sessions, involving exercises and home tasks to practice and refine		techniques to promote positive change. Therapy is designed around individual’s priorities and perspectives, tailoring it to your needs.
