Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a relatively new kind of therapy. It works encouraging people to embrace their feelings and thoughts. Those who undergo Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) could find this challenging as they might be used to feeling guilty for their thoughts, others might try to fight their thoughts.

Who Could Benefit from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy? 

People who suffer from OCD, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse could benefit from this type of therapy. 

Working to improve psychological flexibility, ACT combines self-acceptance and mindfulness skills. If you were to undergo ACT you would need to commit to accepting your feelings and thoughts. 

In other words, you will need to deal with any thoughts that you have head-on, as opposed to trying to avoid those things that stress you. This can potentially help you to embrace any challenges you come across. 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is thought to be very effective when used to help treat a range of psychological disorders. It can also help to provide people with a unique perspective, helping them to achieve more self-acceptance. 

Barlby mental health support usually involves talking to a doctor or local community support groups about how you’re feeling. If you think ACT could be the right type of therapy for you, please talk to your doctor or therapist.
