Cure depression without drugs in West Chester Pa.

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.

Life Coaching vs. Therapy

NLP Based Life Coaching vs. therapy

Life coaching last only 8 sessions to completion and solution.
Therapy is open ended- as long as you have an therapy appointment in your future, you are projecting your problems into your future!

In therapy you talk about your problems.
In life coaching we create solutions.

Therapy can seem laborious.
Life coaching causes rapid transformation.

Therapy is intended to move you out of pain.
Life coaching moves you into fulfillment.

Therapy gives you a diagnosis.
Life coaching does not label you.

Therapy addresses symptoms.
Life Coaching aligns with with who you really are at your core and empowers you to become a force for good in society.

If you are unsure that NLP bsaed life coaching is right for you, call for a no cost- no obligation complimentary session 610-429-9002

What does a real life coach do?

Many people are out there claiming to be life coaches. So how do you figure out which one is best for you?

First take a look at yourself and why are you considering a life coaching. Are you stuck in life? Unfulfilled?

Are you caught in a bad relationship? Do you have an abusive(fill in the blank here)? Are you depressed,

anxious or both? If this sounds like you then finding someone to help you set goals and pump you up will

probably NOT work best for you. You see, whatever has you stuck in life is the same thing that  has

always caused you problems. So getting someone to simply help you through your current situation is not

bad, but what about the next problem…and the next…and the next.

As a Neuro Linguistic Programming Life Coach I help people to dicover who they really are at their core.

I help to align them with their top core values in life which CHANGES EVERYTHING for them. Jim Rohn,

who is often considered the father of personal and business philosophy said, “If you change, everything

will change for you.”  

I see the manifestations of my work as often my past coaching clients will reach out to me to update me on

their progress. New jobs, relationships, more money and general happiness in life is typical feedback that I get.

It is truly my honor to help people change. To see them grow and become more in just a few weeks can ONLY

be described a s transformational. So it is my very biased opinion that what a real life coach can do for you

is to lead you from a low level of fulfillment in life to a very high level of fulfillment in just 6 to 8 weeks.

Should you choose therapy or life coaching:which is right for you?

So you feel like you are stuck in life and have decided to get help. Should you choose traditional therapy or life coaching? Let’s look at the pros and cons of both.
How much time do you want to invest? Traditional therapy can take months or even years to work through your problems. If you are not in a hurry to change the quality of your life that could work. Life coaching usually takes less then two months from start to finish. If you want rapid changes perhaps life coaching is for you.
Do you want small changes or dramatic change? Again, traditional therapy usually effects smaller change. With a Nuero Linguistic Programming certified life coach, you get dramatic changes.
Do you want to get out of pain or do you want to feel fulfilled and happy in life? Traditional therapy works on your past and tries to help you with your “stuff”. With NLP Life Coaching, you not only get rid of your “stuff”, you arrive at a place of peace and contentment that you most likely have NEVER felt before or if you did, for only a brief time(s).
Do you have insurance to cover therapy? This is the one and only one reason I can see to choose the therapy route. Many insurance companies will cover therapy. Life Coaching is not normally covered.
The decision is an individual one. What is right for one person might not be right for another. Whichever you choose be sure to research the background of the person you employ. There are many good therapists and life coaches out there. And unfortunately, there unqualified life coaches and poor therapists. In fact, many people have hung a life coach sign on their door because they have been downsized from the corporate world and feel they can be a life coach using their experience as a mid-level corporate manager. Don’t be fooled. If your coach/therapist is not NLP certified be warned: your result will be slow and subtle.

A West Chester Personal Trainer Can Provide You With Personalized Attention

The name says it all. The role of a West Chester personal trainer is to provide individual, personalized attention to each and every client; and it is that personalized attention that makes all the difference to your fitness success.

What Does A West Chester Personal Trainer Do?

The personal trainer wears many hats. He or she is part nutritional counsel, part friend and confidant and support system, part motivational speaker, part fitness enthusiast, part exercise scientist, and part fitness expert. That’s a lot to roll all into one person, but it is the labor of love of the personal trainer.

Practically, this means the West Chester personal trainer provides services such as these for you as client:

  • Education in regards to healthy living and eating
  • Consultation for both nutrition and exercise or physical training
  • Education as to proper exercise performance
  • Evaluation of fitness goals
  • Evaluation of past and present fitness activities
  • Injury prevention and management
  • Plan development for individual exercise and fitness programs
  • Exercise supervision
  • Motivational support
  • Reassessment of goals and program

This list is really only the beginning of the services offered by a personal trainer. The services and benefits of working with a personal trainer are wide and varied, and to a very large extent they are dependent upon your own individual needs.

Why Put The Personal In Personal Trainer?

Regardless of the capacity the personal trainer serves for you, the key is that you are getting attention that is personal and individual.

Every person is different. Body type, size, and structure are different. People vary in strength, endurance, flexibility, and overall capability. People differ in regards to health. People have drastically different goals for fitness and physical performance. All of this adds up to one thing: everyone has a need for a different fitness plan.

In order to achieve the fitness goals you have in mind, or even to realize what those goals are, you need to learn many things. You need to know what your physical abilities are, you need to learn how you can safely reach those goals given extenuating personal circumstances, and you need to know how to best focus your fitness work. Unless you have a deep background in nutrition and exercise, you are not likely to have the knowledge base needed to make the best fitness decisions for you.

A West Chester personal trainer on the other hand does. Personal trainers study fitness and the human body in-depth so that they can help you blend exercise science, health, and nutrition all into one package that fits right for you.

A West Chester personal trainer is an excellent resource both as occasional consultant and as a regular fitness coach. Take advantage of the knowledge and personal service that a personal trainer brings so that you can be confident your fitness plan is safe, effective, and well-tuned to make you the healthiest you can be.

Premier Personal Training with Dennis Carroll is located in West Chester, PA and serves clients in West Chester, Downingtown and Exton. Every client at Premier receives the individual training needed to successfully reach their goals.

Beware The Saboteur – For It Is You!

We all do it.  In one way or another, we sabotage ourselves.  Some of us in relationships (that was a big one for me). Some of us sabotage ourselves financially, while others sabotage their physical health.

The cause of this strange phenomena has been studied and debated exhaustively. Sabotaging your own success has very little to do with your intelligence level. What it does have to do with is your belief system. You are where you are in life, right now, because that is where you BELIEVE you deserve to be.

You may think that last statement is bull. You may be very unhappy with your current situation. But  may I ask, how is it that you are where you are? Who got you here? The answer lies in your belief system. If you have tried something in the past and failed at it repeatedly, it is because subconsciously, you believed you would fail before you even started. If you keep getting the same result, you only reinforce the ‘fail before you try’ attitude.

So here is the good news. You, can succeed. “How?”, you may be asking. The first step is to recognize that you are sabotaging. Recognize, you are responsible for your failures as well as your successes. And begin to shift your mindset. Begin to focus more and more on your successes (everyone is good at something!).  Start building your confidence by realizing that if you can succeed in one area of your life, then you can succeed in all others as well. If you believe that God created you, then you must also believe that He gave you everything you need to be successful in life.

Set specific goals and start taking baby steps towards them. Focus on the steps to the goal, not the goal itself. It is the steps to the goal that will ultimately lead you to succeed.

When you have overcome the things in life that have stopped you repeatedly in the past, your whole world will change for the better. The rewards are so great that I can’t possibly surmise them here.  Believe that God created you to succeed and you will.
