Acceptance Commitment Therapy Group (over 18)

ACT stands for Acceptance Commitment Therapy and it teaches flexibility of thinking, how to see things from a different perspective, diffusion rather than avoidance, acceptance rather than judgement. ACT is an experiential therapy so it is fun and great for physical strategies.

A major difference from other therapies is its focus on values rather than goals. Adults with autism and parents/carers are welcome to participate in a therapeutic group aimed at more effectively addressing issues such as anxiety, stress, addictions, depression, burn out, and more.
