There are life coaches out there that would take your money if you have depression but please read this first!
I have often had enquiries about life coaching from people that have experienced episodes of depression. You may well see from the tone of my writing that I am very passionate about my own opinion (my own opinion is only my own thoughts and are mine only – disclaimer)
Why am I passionate? To give you some context depression can be overcome, beaten and cured, yes you heard me right there! Depression is not a life sentence, it’s not a disease and it’s not something you are born with. I want the best for every person that reads this or contacts me and I will give them my honest opinion and why I am passionate about people being advised well and helped by the right people.
I am a caring person and want to make sure I don’t come across as an arse hole that is overbearing and the world’s authority because I am not. I want the best for every person that reads this or contacts me and I will give them my opinion and why I am passionate about people being served safely and powerfully.
Depression is something that needs careful and skilful therapists who work with and practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness – note: this is not a complete list of treatments but I would say CBT is a must coupled with mindfulness.
These therapists help people understand the ins and outs of the disorder and how it can be worked with, overcome and cured. I know I am intentionally hitting my point home here but people need to be helped to reorder their thinking and relearn thinking styles that help them balance, view the world from differing positions and create thinking styles that are not rigid. And this can be done believe me.
How much and how many sessions of therapy?
You should be looking at circa £50 per session and expect to work with the therapist for a minimum of 12 sessions to get things back on an even keel. (this is just a suggested minimum of sessions and investment)
Please contact Colin Mitchell at the Glasgow Cognitive Therapy Centre for that who I wholeheartedly trust and refer you to and please call him on 0141 332 0229 or email him HERE Please tell them you have contacted them through me and been referred by me.
Then the future could be yours to move right into with a life coach like me. So please see, feel and hear this as a gift from me to you and don’t waste a single penny on life coaching if you feel there is work to be done to resolve any depression.
So back to life coaching
Life coaching may be appropriate AFTER a person has worked with a therapist that is skilled in depression and helped the person adapt to using day to day recovery and coping plans and skills. But not before therapy!
A person has to be in a good place to be coached and able to have the ability to create the future from many points of view and thinking styles. If these thinking styles are not in place you are throwing your money away with a coach and might as well flush it down the toilet as far as I am concerned.
If you have resolved depression and want to build a future that is based on what you want rather than what you don’t want the time could be right.
From me to you and don’t waste a single penny on life coaching if you feel there is work to be done on depression still.
I would be happy to help you with life coaching but please think about your own self in the safest possible way firstly.
