As an Acceptance, Commitment and Therapy (ACT) Counsellor I help people to understand on a conscious level why they think the way that they do and give them easy to apply techniques to enable them to make the changes that they need so that life becomes more enjoyable.
Most people experience thinking traumatic thoughts and feelings at some stage which can be quite distressing. We all have about 60,000 thoughts a day and only 3-5% are actually helpful thoughts. Around 90% of which are recycled (you’ll think about them again), a third are neutral (e.g. that is a pen) and two thirds are unhelpful or even painful. So you are not on your own if you are experiencing such thoughts!
Some talking therapies suggest that you should challenge any distressing or unwanted thoughts that you experience by looking for evidence to counter it and provide a more rational response accordingly. However, when you have so many thoughts every day (60,000) it is hardly surprising that people struggle to be able to do this. ACT differs in that instead of challenging distressing thoughts ACT helps you to simply accept thoughts just as thoughts – you do not have to pay attention to them, act upon them or let them impact upon you detrimentally.
ACT is very helpful at defusing these unhelpful thoughts swiftly and helps you to focus on what really is important for you. ACT considers your values, thoughts, feelings and actions and helps you to make desired changes to help you achieve what you want. In summary ACT can help you to live a more valued and meaningful life – a life that truly matters to you!
I am delighted to share that the NHS, who have recognised the effectiveness of ACT for many years, have just developed a free on-line course called ACTivate your life. So if you feel that you would benefit why not try it now using the link below:
Once you have completed it if you feel that you would benefit from having further one to to one therapy I would be delighted to help you – with ACT, Hypnotherapy, Healing or a combination of all which most clients request. During lock down I am offering sessions in person to local residents and also on-line sessions via Zoom.
