Mindfulness – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) CANCELLED

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Training (ACT) helps you to accept what is out of your control and make a commitment to taking positive action to restore your health and vitality. This approach has been used effectively in treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, substance use, eating disorder and a range of other conditions. It aims to help you combat the suffering caused by avoidance and develop the psychological flexibility to be open to what matters to you.

The workshop will provide you with an introduction to ACT and to practice three mindfulness based skills: Defusion – letting go of unhelpful thoughts and beliefs. Acceptance – making room for painful feelings and becoming free from the struggle they cause. Contact – with the present moment experience to develop an attitude of openness. Whilst life will continue to present difficult challenges, we hope this session will equip you for them to have less impact and influence over you.
