ACT Therapy is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and it is an evidence-based approach to helping people make lasting change. Thousands of journal articles show it is an effective tool for emotional difficulty, anxiety relief, and behavioral change. Here is the thing, anyone who studies ACT Therapy will quickly realize almost all of the techniques long pre-date the invention of modern psychotherapy and are based largely in hypnotic and meditation techniques.
For many hypnotists, learning ACT Therapy techniques provides a new set of strategies for helping clients resolve problems. It differs from approaches that look for “the cause” and instead works by helping a client live their best life right now, despite prior difficulties and trauma. For this reason alone, it is a great tool for trauma resolution.
Does it sound interesting? I created a short training video you can watch, that shares some of the core ideas in ACT Therapy and how hypnotists can reclaim these ideas and use them to help clients make lasting change. Enjoy this presentation!

The cool thing about ACT? Like Eriksonian hypnotherapy, it recognizes the value of metaphor. Do you want scripts for healing metaphors you can bring to hypnotherapy? Take this training! Do you enjoy having multiple interactive techniques so hypnosis is not simply you talking to someone with closed eyes? Then you are going to want to take this course.
