Don't know what ACT is like, but I have found CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) really very helpful.
I have a book - a self-help workbook "Mind Over Mood" which teaches you to use Thought Records & write down your thoughts & pinpoint the 'hot thought'. Often if I can make myself complete a Thought Record, I can get my emotions from say:
Sad - 80% strength
Afraid - 85%
Angry - 70%
Sad - 30%
Afraid - 40%
Angry - 35%
So it really has been quite good for me!
Here's the link to an online site where you can do a CBT course FREE. It's sponsored by I think it's the University of Scotland. It's basically the same as what's in my book!
