Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy focuses on your responses to your emotions. It encourages your acceptance of your bodily sensations. Acceptance and commitment therapy seeks to help you dedicate yourself to useful change.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and actions. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts that maintain the issues you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and feelings.


Psychology is interested in you and your mind, feelings and actions. It offers you psychological interventions and mental wellbeing support. The intention of psychological therapy is to help you alleviate symptoms.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you confront. It considers your ideas, feelings and relevant events in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find suitable methods of coping.
