ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), Mindfulness and CBT
2nd August 2020, 9.30am - 4.30pm
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy gets its name from its main themes - to accept things that are out of your control and commit to changing things that can be changed to make your life better. In summary, ACT uses mindfulness and acceptance skills to develop a more flexible relationship with your thoughts, feelings, memories and sensations. Time is also taken to clarify what gives your life meaning, your values. Without being held back by tricky thoughts and feelings and with a new sense of purpose and direction, you can begin to build a more enriched and meaningful life.
There are six stages to ACT that take a client from acceptance through to committed action. The process can incorporate hypnosis, CBT, mindfulness and even coaching. It is heavily supported by the NHS and NICE guidelines.
The days training will take you through practical processes and is ideal for use with anger, anxiety, loss, even addictions.
