Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: ACT Therapists in Melbourne

Introduction to Action and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a mindfulness-based psychotherapy which focuses on the acceptance of painful thoughts and feelings, alongside a commitment to actions which are aligned with a person’s values.

ACT proposes that psychological distress is related to our attempts to control or avoid difficult internal experiences, including emotions, thoughts and physical sensations. ACT suggests that it is not these difficult internal experiences that need to be changed or removed, but the way we relate to them. In this way, ACT supports people to develop practical strategies to accept and let go of negative thoughts and feelings.
