Get Out of Your Sexual Rut with Commitment

  In a recent post I discussed how to get unstuck using the six components of psychological flexibility. Contact with the Present Moment (mindfulness).

Helping Clients Get Unstuck

An AC and ACT-based approach to coaching assumes that coaching clients are whole, functional, and do not have DSM V mental disorders. They are just stuck.
