ACT Therapy in Dripping Springs

I Use A Systems Approach

 

 

We look at the way you were raised and how it influenced who you are. Those things have such an impact and at New Chapter Therapy, you have an opportunity to connect it with who you are and where you want to be.

 

ACT – Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is focused on who you are in life aligning with your core values.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT)

 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings.

 

Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals. With this understanding, clients begin to accept their issues and hardships and commit to making necessary changes in their behavior, regardless of what is going on in their lives, and how they feel about it.
