Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with Holly Yates and Holly Moses

In this episode, I chat with Holly Moses and Holly Yates, who both practice Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). We dive into the serenity prayer, solidifying and following your values, the function of negative emotions, mindfulness, and the difference between therapy and coaching.  

We also chat about managing imposter syndrome, the value of saying your “brain story” out loud, and the Japanese art of fixing cracked bowls.
