Understanding Depression?

Depression is a mental health challenge that negatively affects how we feel, think and the way we act.

It causes intense feelings of sadness usually accompanied by a loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed.

The most important thing to remember is to keep reminding ourselves that there’s still hope.

Signs & Symptoms of Depression

While experiencing sadness or loss of interest for some time is normal. However, if these feelings don’t subside after a while it might be due to depression.

Although the symptoms may vary from one individual to the other, it is usually accompanied by feelings of intense sadness and hopelessness.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of depression:

  • Feeling Nothing good ever happens
  • Withdrawing from close family and friends
  • Feelings of emptiness, hopelessness, despair, and sadness
  • Irritability, anxiousness, and guilt

Different Types of Depression

There are various types of depression depending on the symptoms and their intensity.

It is crucial that we are well informed about different forms of depression so that the correct treatment plan can be administered.

Here are the major forms of depression:

  • Major depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post Natal depression
  • Cyclothymic disorder
  • Dysthymic disorder
  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)

How does Depression Affect Men, Women & Children?

Anyone can be affected by depression at any time. However, at certain points in our lives we become more vulnerable. For example, big changes can affect children’s emotions whilst losing a job or a loved one may affect men and women of all ages.

In most of these scenarios our brain goes through extreme stress and is more likely to succumb to such mental health disorders.

100 % Drug-Free Alternative Natural Method for Depression

We aim to relieve depression by naturally assisting the removal of negative emotions, feelings and thoughts from the brain with the help of our safe and drug-free Emotional Empowerment Program which consists of 14 sessions.

The first ten sessions address all of your triggers so that you may be more resilient to cope with your life and the next four sessions work on sabotaging default patterns of behaviour.

The effectiveness of our program involves an interaction with the unconscious part of the brain (your automatic brain), through the use of positive auditory stimuli, a technique created by Terri Bowman, our Founder.

Client Statistics After their 1st Session

The following graph shows self-reported data of over 2000 clients’ responses about how they felt before and after the Introductory session. The good news is that 97.4% of our clients feel a noticeable difference at the end of their first session and are satisfied with the session.
