Sometimes some people arrive at the point in their lives where they realize that they cannot change certain aspects of themselves no matter how much effort and energy they have put into working on themselves. This is where Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach can be helpful. It focuses on helping a person develop a mind-set so she/he/they can live a fulfilled life despite some things in her/his/their life that cannot be changed.
With this approach we will be exploring different concepts simultaneously: acceptance of what is, your life values, mindful approach and observation of your feelings and thoughts in the present moment, and willingness and commitment to taking an action so you can live a fulfilled life despite of what is. You will learn to observe yourself and your thoughts without emotional attachment, make choices in alignment with what is important to you and develop willingness and commitment to creating new ways of thinking and behaving. The goal of ACT is to help you live the life that is satisfying to you.
I AM HERE NOW,
ACCEPTING THE WAY I FEEL AND NOTICING MY THOUGHTS,
WHILE DOING WHAT I CARE ABOUT.
