About the Author

Richard Blonna, EdD, is a university professor and author who has integrated acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) principles and practices into his work as a teacher and nationally certified life coach, counselor, and health education specialist. He has helped thousands of students and clients learn how to manage stress and other mental barriers and meet their life goals. He lives in Hillsborough, NJ.


"For any coach who wants to be more effective and find more fulfillment in their work, this textbook is a must-have. Richard Blonna has done an excellent job of making the ACT model clear and accessible. Not just a highly practical book, but also an interesting and entertaining read."
--Russ Harris, author of The Happiness Trap and ACT Made Simple

"Blonna has done a superlative job of integrating the ACT principles and practices with coaching. I found the most valuable part was dealing with what Blonna calls the psychologically inflexible client. His tips for how to assist clients in getting 'unstuck' using values fusing are enlightening and powerful. I also greatly appreciate his mindfulness strategies and how they blend with his concrete and practical tools. His intake forms are essential for all practitioners. This book is a must-read for both coaches and counselors!"
--Lyn Kelley, PhD, LMFT, CPC, president of GROW Training Institute, Inc., continuing education and coach training organization

"This beautifully written and intensely practical book marries two unlikely bedfellows--a therapeutic approach (ACT) with the practice of life coaching. Guided by the author's gentle, expert hand, it became clear to me that this marriage is like that of two soulmates, who together dance effortlessly, elevating one another to achieve a common purpose: a life that matters. This book delivers on the promise in its title. Full of practical exercises and evidence-based know-how, it is a must-read for life coaches who want to enrich their work and make a difference in the lives of those who are stuck and trying to find a way forward."
--John P. Forsyth, PhD, professor of psychology and director of the anxiety disorders research program at the University of Albany - SUNY and author of Your Life on Purpose and The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety

"For many years, acceptance and commitment training has been applied to organizations, and it's only natural to extend the benefits to coaching. In his book, Blonna combines a clear and concise description of ACT with his vast knowledge of coaching. Beyond those interested in coaching, anyone interested in using ACT for themselves or with others would benefit from reading this book."
--Kevin L. Polk, PhD, author of Psychological Flexibility Training

"ACT seems destined to transform the coaching profession. The scientifically-based principles of ACT are based on the psychology of normal people and fit the structure and purpose of coaching hand in glove. Readable, sensible, and comprehensive, this volume shows you exactly how to apply ACT to your coaching practice. If you work as a coach or are considering doing so, there is no better place to begin."
--Steven C. Hayes, PhD, Foundation Professor at the University of Nevada and author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life
