This course provides you with insights into depression and tools that you can use to ease your depression.
Who this course is for:
This course is for you, if -
* You struggle with depression in your life
* You want some relief from this struggle
* You are prepared to do some work in order to achieve results.
While this course is primarily for people who struggle with depression in their lives, this course is also beneficial for mental health professionals interested in expanding their understanding of depression and of the tools they can encourage their clients with depression to work with.
About me, briefly:
I am a physician (35 years), psychotherapist (20 years), best-selling mental health author and mental health educator. For the past twenty years, I have worked full-time - with a recovery-oriented approach - with people already given psychiatric diagnoses such as depression. Mental health is my work, but it is also my hobby, my passion.
What is different about this course:
The material within this course is based upon a solid understanding of the emotional and psychological aspects of depression, aspects that do not generally receive the attention they merit.
Depression is generally seen as a medical illness. If you suffer with depression, you have likely been told that there is not much you can do to understand depression better, or to help yourself.
Within this course, I provide you with a wide range of insights into what this thing we call "depression" really is.
I also give you a wide range of tools that you can work with. These tools are not complicated. You can apply them within your daily life.
I have helped many people recover from depression. Within this course, I set out my understanding of depression, and the tools towards recovery that I have given to the people who have attended me with depression over the past twenty years.
I am very respectful of the pain, distress and struggle that is at the heart of depression. This courses reflects my respect - both for the often excruciating level of distress in depression, and for the people who experience and endure these profound levels of pain and distress.
Fear, self-doubt and overwhelm are regular features of depression. The pacing of the work must respect this. My general advice about the best pacing to use within this course is "small steps, taken frequently".
Contact with me:
As a participant within the course, you can contact me through the "comment" section in every module of the course, or by emailing me at [email protected]
I am of course very happy to answer any questions you many have about the course material or any related topic or issue.
