Do you ever feel that you are living a life that is far smaller than the one you desire? A life where your hopes and dreams are so far out of your reach, that each time you try to take steps towards them, you are often blocked by overwhelming fear, doubt and resignation.

You are not alone. Many of us live in what has been popularly termed the comfort zone.

Which is a pretty misleading name as the comfort zone is usually anything but comfortable. It is the place we exist when we are preoccupied by fear of failure and rejection and the unknown. In our own lives, and through our work with others, we see time and time again how it is very often our own self-limiting inactions that keep us trapped within this comfort zone.

Aisling and Trish, co-directors of ACT Now Purposeful Living, are a couple of psychologists who also happen to be a couple. Together, our key passion is to empower people towards a life built on purpose and meaning.

Aisling Curtin

Aisling has had first-hand experience of anxiety, while Trish struggles with depression. We combine our lived experience with evidence-based practice from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT, pronounced as a word rather than A.C.T.) to bring you the most effective ways of bringing mindfulness into your everyday life.

Aisling Curtin

We firmly believe that learning a few key skills and implementing these skills daily can mean the difference between a half-lived life and a life worth fighting for.

Aisling, Trish and the rest of the ACT Now Purposeful Living team all walk the walk. We will never teach you anything that we don’t actively apply in our own lives. We will all be breaking out of our comfort zones together.

You’re only one step away from building your life worth fighting for.

As Lao Tsu says, the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. We are here if you’re willing to take that step today.

Testimonials from our clients

“I got a sense of support for a mindful practice that is a very useful tool to clarify issues. It’s a workshop that really cuts straight through to blocks that we don’t necessarily see… it’s very clarifying. There’s great insights in the toolbox that Aisling uses. “

Mary Kavanagh, Nurse, Dublin

“I would highly recommend ACT and Aisling to anyone. A counsellor recommended Aisling and this programme to me… she felt it would benefit me and she was right. It’s not going too deep into your past and all this. It’s kind of living in the now, the moment and it’s using mindfulness in your daily life, not just sitting and meditating.”

Emer O’Toole, Childcare worker, Dublin

“It’s (ACT Workshop) great practical everyday DIY for your life. We all walk around with your own thoughts, concerns and preoccupations and our own wishes and feelings and beliefs and so on. So any time you look beneath the hood and start to question those and stop to take a moment to consider those is valuable. Absolutely, I would recommend it.”

Dr. Jim Johnson, Research Scientist, University College Dublin

“For me, it was a day about getting back in touch with myself and recalibrating. And it did that beautifully. I really enjoyed it… Everybody should take a day out like this to tap into how they feel and where they feel to get a different perspective on life.”

Marie Nugent, Director of Inner Inspirations, Dublin
