The aim of ACT is to maximise human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) gets it name from one of its core messages: accept what is out of your personal control, and commit to action that improves and enriches your life.

ACT does this by:

a) teaching you psychological skills to deal with your painful thoughts and feelings effectively – in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you (these are known as mindfulness skills).

b) helping you to clarify what is truly important and meaningful to you – i.e your values – then use that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate you to change your life for the better.

I approach each of my sessions with the aim to ensure that my client feels better at the end of the session than at the beginning. My role is to guide my clients through their issues and show them the tools required for them to lead healthy, happy and productive lives when our sessions end.
