RECOVERY FROM DEPRESSION IS A MYTH

WOULD YOU RATHER LIVE A FULFILLED LIFE WITH YOUR DEPRESSION OR...

An unfulfilled life continually striving for an unattainable goal?

I'LL NEVER FORGET THE LOOK ON THAT BUS DRIVER'S FACE WHEN I STEPPED OUT IN FRONT OF HIM

It was a mixture of shock, bewilderment, anger, and fear.

 

I wasn't intentionally trying to kill myself but I was in a Depression fog. I'd
been severely depressed for weeks and I'd just begun to take a new medication

It hadn't kicked in yet so I was still at what I call "the absent-minded old
lady" stage. The reason I walked out in front of that bus was because I hadn't thought to look for traffic, even though I knew I was in a busy street in the central business district.

I JUST HADN'T THOUGHT TO LOOK

ONCE YOU'VE FILLED IN THE PAPERWORK, YOUR KEY-WORKER HAS SIGNED IT OFF, AND YOUR PSYCHIATRIST HAS APPROVED IT, THAT IS.

I TRIED THINKING POSITIVELY

I really did give it my best shot. Several times.

I've tried distraction, I've tried several different medications, I've tried therapy, diet, and exercise.

 

I've read the books, watched the documentaries and rung the helplines.


All in an attempt to get rid of this demon that's been following me around since childhood.

 

And you know what?

It all worked.

For about five minutes. Maybe ten.

 

Then I'm back to nốt being able to drag myself out of bed because really, what's the point?

YOU CAN SURVIVE IT TOO. AND NOT JUST SURVIVE IT.

                                                                           That's why I created:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...

How much time will the program take up every week?

That's up to you, really. How much time are you willing to invest in beating the demon into submission?  I recommend you spend a minimum of 5 minutes each day on your journal prompt, but of course, you can always write for longer.

 

Our zoom calls can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes and they happen every fortnight.

 

If you're short on time, or if you just prefer written communication rather than face-to-face, we can cut the session down and you can work on the information during your own time. There may also be more meditations and exercises I'll give you as they come up.

I don't like zoom. Is there another way the program can be delivered?

Yep. I'm open to all zoom alternatives but I don't do face-to-face visits. During beta testing for this program I discovered that one client prefers not to do any zoom, or similar calls at all.

 

We got around this by me compiling questionnaires for her, her doing the work and sending the questionnaires back, and then me offering advice and feedback through written form.

 

That's why this program is so great for people who have social anxiety, they don't have to force themselves to "show up." They can do the work on their own time and schedule. I can even send your tarot alchemy sessions to you by email. 

 

 

What do I do if I get stuck on any of the shadow work prompts?

If you "get stuck" on a journal prompt, it may mean that the prompt I've given you for the day isn't something you actually need to work on. It may not be a shadow for you. 

 

After saying that, I'd advise you to persevere even if you don't think the prompt is relevant for you. There is always another layer underneath our current understanding: always something new to discover.

 

If you're struggling to understand what the prompt means as a concept, all good. Just send me an email and I'll reply to you as soon as possible. Just please, bear in mind that I live in New Zealand so I may be sleeping when you're working on your prompt.

 

 

 

Is there a guarantee?

I believe in this program because this is my life. This is how I do things on a daily basis. It's how I manage my own depression and how I've created a fulfilling life for myself when I never thought I could.

 

For that reason, I'm 100% comfortable in giving you your money back if you change your mind within 14 days. No questions asked.

 

If you complete the program and Depression is still running your life, I'll give you another month of the program for free. 

Will I benefit from this program if I don't want a new hobby or a new business?

Absolutely. This program is about living well with Depression. It's about exploring options. There is no assessment at the end of 3-months  and there is no follow-up 3 months later to see how your business is getting on.

 

Although Recover from Recovery is focused on helping you turn your Depression into a Creature of Fucking Beauty, if you don't want to create a CFB, you don't have to. However, if you're open to the possibility, you might be astonished at what we uncover for you.

Is there a payment plan for this program?

No: And there's a good reason for that. The kind of change this program gives you only happens over time and it only happens with regular practice.

 

A payment plan leaves the option open for clients to pull out after one month and that won't give them enough time to reap the benefits. The full 3 months is needed for that.

 

In the future, I may offer a monthly membership or a "pay as you go" option but for now, full payment is needed upfront. Also, the price will probably go up in a few months due to the value the program provides.

I've had readings done before, how is this any different?

This isn't a tarot reading, it's tarot alchemy. I won't be telling your fortune and I certainly won't be telling you when Mr tall, dark, and handsome is going to turn up.


Tarot alchemy is the process of using tarot cards to get you from one state of being to another. How that's done is up to you. The spread I've created gives you a clear idea of what your options are.


It also helps you to understand the factors that have led you to get to where you are now and how you can use those same factors to move you to where you want to be.


These tarot readings are different because they're used as a reflective tool and not as a parlour game.
