Dr Bruce Arrol's personal website.

FACT is a new model of brief therapy that is a highly condensed version of a well-established longer-term treatment called acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). FACT teaches clients to cope with uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. It also helps people connect with their personal values and engage in committed actions that are consistent with those values. This approach motivates individuals to change health-related behaviours.
