ACT moves away from focusing too closely on ‘symptom reduction’ towards teaching how to live in a stable and rewarding way. So it teaches how to get in touch with your values, how to act in accordance with them, how to be aware of ‘the you that is always there’, how to see your passing thoughts and feelings for just that, how to accept thoughts and feelings you don’t like without over-struggling with them, and so how to live mainly in the present. The APT has mastered the delivery of ACT training 'online anytime'; providing top class training you can access right now or any time that suits you. No longer do you have to wait for 'the start date' of the course.

With a wealth of clinical experience, Dr William Davies presents the course with relevant stories and examples of using ACT and an engaging lightness which perfectly complements the radical nature of the therapy.   "I am delighted by this course. Dr Davies and his dry wit have been wonderful companions. Will buy and undertake others."
