Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) is devoted to helping you the client step back and see your cognitions and feelings for what they are (arbitrary constructs which once helped you but may now hold you back). You are invited to explore how your Cognitive Automations keep you stuck and how Habitual Worries which once helped may now sidetrack you as you seek to go toward a more vibrant life direction.
