This therapy involves homework in between sessions, self-monitoring, practicing opportunities to reinforce tools taught and lots of education & teaching moments.
ACT helps us really get in touch with what we value about our lives the most. It acknowledges that sometimes life can be very hard and painful, yet reminds us that we can persevere. This therapy challenges us to accept things we cannot control or like, but to stay dedicated to our passions and ideals while untangling ourselves from unhelpful patterns.
CBT affords us the chance to be more conscientous of the effects our thoughts and feelings can have on our actions. The therapy teaches us to monitor what we tell ourselves and to work on replacing unhelpful internal dialogues that have often been around for ages within us. This therapy may ask you to keep thought journals and to replace distorted thinking or ineffective behavior patterns.
