Ep 130: ACT in practice with Dr. Rachael Skews

Welcome to another episode of ‘My Pocket Psych’, where Richard is joined by Dr. Rachael Skews. Rachael has just joined the WorkLifePsych team and discusses how she brings Acceptance and Commitment Theory (ACT) to life in her coaching practice.

After discussing Rachael’s career journey to date, Rachael and Richard discuss how different aspects within ACT support the coaching process and how it differs from ‘traditional’ goal-oriented coaching. They explore the benefits of values clarification, developing the ability to see thoughts for what they are, and taking meaningful action.

Finally, they outline their free webinar about introducing coaching, scheduled for March 16th.

If you have any questions about coaching, coaching psychology, ACT or our upcoming webinar, don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can send us an email to ‘podcast at worklifepsych dot com’.

Thanks for listening!
