Online Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in London

For some of us, accepting the negative emotions that come with life can be the best therapy.

Everyone experiences negative emotions from time to time. Some people experience them for the majority of the time. It is natural to want to ignore, fight or panic over these feelings. However, it can be useful to regard them as part of life and instead cultivate the ability to face up to these emotions and let them “wash over” you. Online Therapy Company offers Online Acceptance and Commitment Therapy from London with trained and experienced therapists.

What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a cognitive therapy which, rather than trying to control pain, teaches you to accept that pain is part of life and embrace it. ACT counselling sums up our problems as follows, using the “FEAR” acronym:

  • Fusion with your thoughts
  • Evaluation of experience
  • Avoidance of your experience
  • Reason for your behaviour

It sums up the solution to these problems as follows, using the “ACT” acronym:

  • Accept your reactions and be present
  • Choose a valued direction
  • Take action

These acronyms can seem daunting at first, but your ACT therapist will help you make sense of them and put them into practice in everyday life.


What does an Acceptance and Commitment therapist do?

An Acceptance and Commitment counsellor will help you to identify times when “FEAR” comes into play and “ACT” upon it. They will teach you to stop trying to change things which are out of your control and instead look at other solutions for improving your life which is within your control.

ACT therapists use mindfulness, acceptance and commitment as core principles to help you recognise your emotions, accept them and commit to the most productive and healthy path in life possible.

How can an Acceptance and Commitment therapist help me?

If you feel you have a tendency to try and effect change in your life in counterproductive or futile ways, an ACT therapist may well be able to help you. Rather than trying to erase or cancel out negative thoughts, ACT walks you through them calmly and shows you the skills you need to face them in the future.

How long does Acceptance and Commitment Therapy take?

Facing up to negative emotions is a frightening process. As such, it takes different individuals different amounts of time to learn to do it. This means that a course of ACT therapy can be as long or as short-term as you require – there is no set period in which everyone completes it. Your Online ACT therapist will carefully assess your individual case on an ongoing basis.

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy effective?

ACT has been shown to be just as effective as popular therapies such as Online CBT therapy in helping patients to make their lives more manageable and no longer be held hostage to negative emotions. Its unique structure means that those who have not found emotional peace using other psychological therapies have the chance to try a different talk therapy approach.
