What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) & How Does it Work?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT, is a mindfulness-based therapy developed by Steven Hayes. The aim of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is to enable us to live a more meaningful life that is congruent with and reflects our values and what is important to us. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy helps us do this by giving us the tools that allow us to move past whatever barriers we face as we travel along our path towards building a valued life.
