Have you seen the commercial? You know, the one that says, ” 3 out of 4 people on anti-depressants still suffer from depressive symptoms.”? Then it goes on to try to convince the audience that what they need is ANOTHER drug!
I call, “Bullshit.” Depression drugs can help people who are experiencing a tough time but they were never meant to be taken long term, certainly not for life!
For most people, depression is a learned emotional pattern. In fact, the recipe for depression (what we have to do to get depressed) is the same universally! Everyone on this planet must do the same thing in order to feel depressed; look down, slump your shoulders, put a sad look on your face, shallow breaths and focus on what is wrong. At some point in their lives it was an appropriate emotional state. But some people get stuck in depression because of two things; depression meets primary emotional needs and the depressed person does not have another way to meet those needs (these are needs, not wants).
Let me explain: All human behavior occurs in patterns in order to meet emotional needs, including depression. To me, depression is just a pattern. So when a client comes to me “DOING” depression, I show them exactly how they are meeting their needs that way. I show them how they are doing depression and together, we identify a more empowering emotional state that meets their needs. It’s really very simple. It usually takes 2 to 4 Life Coaching sessions to completely end depression without drugs at out West Chester, Pa facility. And believe it or not, the same goes for anxiety. We also help people to completely end anxiety without drugs in our West Chester facility.
So if you, or someone you know, suffers from anxiety or depression in or around West Chester, and would like to end their depression/anxiety without drugs, call me for a complimentary Life Coaching session.
