ACT is a technique used in counselling and therapy that encourages people to embrace their feelings and thoughts and accept difficulties that are faced in life. 

Whereas CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) challenges thoughts and feelings through rationalisation and evidence-based thinking, ACT focuses on acceptance in conjunction with mindfulness, commitment and behavioural changes. 

ACT does not seek to eliminate difficult feelings, but rather, encourages to be present in life and move toward more meaningful and valuable thinking. It invites people to open up to unpleasant or challenging feelingand learn how to work through these feelings without overreacting and without avoidance.
