A recent article on Psychology Today blog by Myra Altman Ph.D. discusses the peer-reviewed study just accepted for publication at the Journal of Technology in Behavioral Science.
The new research shows 58 percent of people who started care with symptoms of depression experienced clinical recovery after at least one session with a certified coach and saw a 76 percent increase in their well-being overall.
These findings build upon our previous published research showing the more sessions people participated in, the more their well-being improved.
Humans have needs. There’s a hierarchy of them.
👉 Stress and overwhelm result from unmet needs or pain (unmet need to be free from pain). Or as Buddhism might put it: attachment to desire (expectation versus reality).
👉 Trauma results from chronic stress and lack of agency.
👉 Complex trauma results from trauma or neglect as a child and your nervous system experiences emotional flashbacks. (Then your Inner 7-year hijacks your brain!)
I AM A LONER WITH THOUSANDS OF FRIENDS. I have always felt alone, but not lonely. This feeling began when I was very young, and it was hard to be with. I didn’t have the tools, the knowledge, or the understanding to articulate the emptiness, so began the titled vision of my aloneness.
“I had literally been searching for decades to questions I could never frame. Walking through life was a continual nagging that my life was being held back, that I wasn’t able to achieve the dreams I had. Even when those dreams were seemingly run of the mill. To be a wife, mum and raise a healthy family. When I first read this book I shed tears of pure relief. Finally, someone understood what I could never put into words.”
