Acceptance and commitment therapy is a powerful new approach to therapy. On the course you will learn new practical strategies to help you:

  • Reduce avoidance
  • Be more accepting of yourself and your stammering
  • Manage difficult thoughts and feelings through mindfulness skills
  • Identify the directions you’d like your life to go in
  • Set short, medium and long term goals to start moving towards these valued directions

ACT encourages action and you will come away from this course with powerful skills for moving forward in your life.

'Since attending the course, I am no longer so frustrated or self-critical and am learning to be kinder to myself.  The resulting increase in self-confidence has in turn encouraged me to take on new responsibilities and challenges’ Amanda

‘The ACT course has helped me maintain a good level of fluency and also feel better about things generally’ Mercedes

‘I’ve learned from the course that being willing to face discomfort when bringing my work to a wider more varied audience will be worth it as I’ll be moving towards what’s really important to me.’ John
