How ACTing changed my life
Four years before I started leading Tenovus Cancer Care’s ACTivate Your Life – Affected By Cancer I started acting on stage. Little did I know that to get to that point I’d be using most of the elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) long before I even knew it existed. Acting changed my life, ACT can change yours.
