I have developed a Tool which records the client's feelings at the start of therapy. This enables me to measure the effectiveness of my therapeutic programme in a dynamic and powerful way throughout the process. This is hard evidence that my programme of healing and change really works. All it takes is full participation in the programme. 


A definition of depression is seen as a mental state of being, characterised by a pessimistic sense of inadequacy and a despondent lack of activity. 


“There is nothing I can do” … “It’s hopeless” … “I am useless” … “Why bother it will not work.” "I feel sad."


This is a condition that generally everyone at sometime in their lives will suffer from. There are many levels of depression, from severe and chronic to mild. There are many causes of depression, which is seen by the medical profession as an illness. I do not see it as an illness but as An Addiction. Depression is self inflicted by the belief system of the individual; you can not catch depression you have to give it to yourself. Depression in many ways is like grief ... a feeling of loss. We specialise in Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy to help overcome depression. This type of therapy is approved by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

At Mind For Life we have a unique programme that has helped many people who were suffering from depression, and changed their lives permanently. The corner-stone of the programme is the in-house development of the iCBT process, which is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. iCBT aims to help clients to deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by educating the client through structured workbook reading and written exercises. It provides structured education and the latest understanding on how the human mind works. iCBT includes unique techniques to control and eliminate negative thoughts, teaching meditation, and how to reset past traumas, providing guidance to beneficially change behaviour.


We do not have any magic formulas or special powers, we do not tell people how to live their lives …what we do is guide, teach, support, and encourage; if the client fully participates in the programme, then they will develop enthusiasm and curiosity about this Earth Experience, valuing health.  Every person who has fully participated in the programme has created new opportunities in their lives … without exception.
