Acceptance & Commitment Therapy & Mindfulness
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy integrates cognitive therapy tools with mindfulness skills so you can live a more fulfilling life based upon your own values and goals.
Mindfulness is the ability to notice thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and those around you with presence and equanimity. This allows you to handle negative thoughts and difficult situations much more effectively.
Recent research has shown that people who have been clinically depressed three or more times in their life find that learning mindfulness-based skills helps to considerably reduce their chances of depression returning. That’s how effective it can be.
