ACTivate Your Life is a four session taught course (not a group therapy) which is all about helping you to have a better life, a life with less suffering and greater freedom to do the things that matter to you.
Suffering is often made worse when we struggle and try to escape from our distress- but it doesn’t need to be this way.
The course will help you understand why your struggles to overcome your problems may have been making things worse; it will help you to do things differently and to make life better for yourself. You will learn a lot about how your mind works and you’ll discover that your mind often works against you, but you can stop your mind spoiling things for you by learning how to take more control.
The course is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which is a new psychological approach that teaches people how to reduce their suffering and how to lead a richer, more fulfilling life by accepting the things they cannot control and making a commitment to do the things that they really care about.
The four sessions of the course run weekly for approximately 2 hours with a break half way through the session. The classes are supported by a PowerPoint presentation, course notes and activity sheets- all free of charge.
The four sessions:
Session 1: ACT 1- You are not your mind
Session 2: ACT 2- Facing up to your life
Session 3: ACT 3- Being mindful
Session 4: ACT 4- Living wisely, living well
Each session lasts two hours and as it is “therapy by PowerPoint” there is no limit to the number of people who can attend each session and you don’t have to register.
The sessions will take place in the Concert Hall, Bronllys Hospital from 12 – 2pm on 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th August. There will also be a video based version online in the future but there is nothing like seeing it “live”. It is hoped to hold this course in other locations around Powys.
