How to become empowered and happier within depression safely, without becoming overwhelmed
If you are struggling with depression, you can develop the understanding and the tools you need to feel empowered in the world, have your needs met, and feel more effective and fulfilled within your life.
The typical medical approach to depression fails to address some key emotional and psychological aspects of depression. Power is one of these important issues.
Over the past 35 years, I have worked professionally with hundreds of people diagnoses with depression. Virtually every one of these described themselves as feeling powerless - powerless to effect productive change in their live, powerless to address the many sources of pain and distress in their lives.
Every human being as an innate sense of power, of sovereignty. Our experiences - especially wounding and trauma - can result in us losing sight of the fact that we all have power, we all are/can be empowered.
Wounding and trauma can result in us feeling that it is too risky to feel we have power, to be empowered.
For over twenty years, I have worked full-time with people given various psychiatric diagnoses, most commonly, depression.
I have helped many dozens of people struggling with depression to regain their sense of being powerful in the world.
In this course, I provide you with the information and the tools that have helped so many clients who attended me struggling with depression.
