Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Also known as ACT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a treatment that helps patients develop psychological skills to deal with painful thoughts and memories. The treatment focuses on being present with what life brings and to move towards positive behavior. Patient’s will understand their urges and addiction, they will learn to not act upon them and to avoid those situations where they are invoked. This effect will bring better feeling and understanding of themselves.

    Core Principles of ACT

    ACT is a comprehensive theory of language and cognition that centers on behavior analysis. By using this method of therapy, our professionals are able to help the individual get in contact with a self-known sense of him or her. This in return will develop their coping and psychological skills within them. Here are the six core principles that we teach:

  • Cognitive defusion: A learning method designed to reduce the occurrence of hypostatize thoughts, feelings, images, emotions, and memories.
  • Acceptance: Allowing your thoughts to come and go with struggling with them.
  • Contact with the present moment: Building awareness of the present, experiencing now and here with openness, interest, and receptiveness.
  • Observing the yourself: Accessing a unparalleled sense of self, a continuity of the consciousness which is unchanging.
  • Values: Discovering what is most important to ourselves.
  • Committed action: Setting goals according to our values and carrying them out responsibly.
