Depression

Depression…what Is It?

The symptoms of depression can begin at any age and to anyone, they can manifest as mild symptoms at first, but can become serious if not recognized early.

Stress itself is a normal human emotion which is usually experienced throughout life at some stage. At times of deep stress and unwanted events we can all slip into a depressive state, however when we find it difficult to come out of the other side, depression can become more than just a stage – and it can take hold of your  life.

Depression can be described as severe despondency, dejection; feelings of hopelessness and inadequacy often combined with guilt, lack of energy, and the inability maintain interest in life. It is then, that living with depression can be debilitating.

Why Fountainhead is a long term solution for depression?

Fountainhead’s approach to depression differs from traditional methods that are low on long term results. Our unique solution works though educating the individual on the underlying root cause of stress, which is leading to depression. A Fountainhead program has three major components which are listed below, these are combined with a nutritious diet, exercise and relaxation therapy to help the body and mind to change and heal. This is what holistic treatment is all about and the work we have been doing for over a decade.

We only use Fountainhead Method ™, trained life coaches.

The Fountainhead Method ™ development commenced at the Fountainhead Retreat in 2002. The Fountainhead Method ™ is an educational technique that examines the way a human being suffering a stress related condition, such as depression or anxiety, is thinking and processing the events of their life. This is based on the core belief structures they mainly develop at an early age and how the processing of reality through these core belief structures or as we call them lenses, causes unwanted emotional symptoms and behavior. The process helps identify where a person learnt their core beliefs on life as well as how they incorrectly measure their self-worth. The information learnt in this process takes the sufferer’s incorrect or incomplete beliefs, which are based on misinterpretations of the past, and re-educates them to look at the same past experiences objectively. The goal is to understand, learn and grow from past experiences which changes the underlying cause of their unwanted emotions and behavior long term.

Journey Time Line Therapy: Developed originally by American author Brandon Bays, similar to Time Line Therapy but different in that the focus is not only to identify your patterns of behavior and their origin, but to change the pattern at the point of identification. Perhaps emotional clearing would be a simple way to express the process in which you are guided through. Your Journey Therapist will equip you with the tools to understand and release limitations. Be it anger, grief, anxiety, fear, or it could be as simple as a sense that there is something more you could be achieving for yourself and your life. No matter how deep the issue or how much you have struggled with it, there is always the possibility you can become powerful, free and fully self expressed. The purpose of Journey Therapy is to get to the true root cause of the issue, finding resolve and allowing you to live your life fully-free and empowered to create new possibilities. Many people conclude that Journey Therapy was one of the best parts of their program.

Mindfulness Training has existed for millennia but has only been explained scientifically in the last twenty years. “Mindfulness produces positive effects on psychological well-being that extend beyond the time the individual is practicing it. Over the last three decades mindfulness practices have been increasingly incorporated into programs, to take advantage of these benefits. A large body of research has established the effectiveness of these mindfulness-based interventions in reducing symptoms of a number of disorders, including anxiety , depression , substance abuse , eating disorders , and chronic pain , as well as improving well-being and quality of life. Mindfulness involves the development of awareness of present-moment experience with a compassionate, non- judgmental stance. It has been suggested that this process is associated with a perceptual shift, in which one’s thoughts and feelings are recognized as events occurring in the broader field of awareness” Harvard Medical school Boston MA 2010
