I believe that therapy can be a tool to foster self-development, self-understanding, self- acceptance and compassion.
Sometimes we feel exhausted, defeated, or like we are constantly battling with our brain and might need some assistance to sort through our thoughts, feelings, or emotions. Especially with the ongoing uncertainty of Covid-19, which can present additional pressures. You may be experiencing the added stress of fear, anxiety, and/or financial struggles. Whatever the case may be, therapy can assist in navigating life stressors, building resiliency, and overcoming negative thought patterns that keep us "stuck". Using a biopsychosocial model, biological, psychological, and social factors are all considered to ensure a holistic approach.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
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 behaviours 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.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Barrie or for a Barrie ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
