About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and its applications

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a contemporary therapeutic approach rooted in cognitive behavioural principles. Developed in the late 20th century, ACT aims to enhance psychological flexibility by fostering acceptance of internal experiences and promoting committed action aligned with personal values. It is practised by skilled professionals who assist individuals in developing psychological flexibility amidst life's challenges. At It's Complicated, our team of therapists specialises in guiding clients through the process of accepting difficult thoughts and emotions while committing to actions that align with their values. Through collaborative exploration, we help individuals build resilience and create meaningful lives, even in the face of adversity.

 

How Acceptance and Commitment Therapy works

The therapeutic process in ACT involves mindfulness, acceptance, and behavioural change strategies. The goal is for the person to have increased psychological flexibility, by practicing being in the present moment with openness to our experience, and taking action that is guided by their values. To reach this goal mindfulnesses exercises are practiced in the ACT process. Our therapists create a supportive environment for clients to observe their thoughts and emotions without judgment, fostering acceptance and compassion towards oneself. Through experiential exercises and values clarification, individuals gain clarity on what truly matters to them, enabling them to take meaningful action towards their goals.

 

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy right for you?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy offers a pragmatic approach to navigating life's challenges and fostering psychological resilience. Whether struggling with anxiety, depression, or relationship issues, ACT provides practical tools for managing distress and living a more fulfilling life. If you're seeking to cultivate acceptance, mindfulness, and value-driven action, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy may offer valuable insights and strategies for personal growth.
