I would like to recommend an inspiring and beautiful web site www.thereachapproach.co.uk.
I have worked in mental health for almost two decades, in connection with addiction, abuse, depression, bereavement, anger and more. The Reach Approach is holistic, looking at all areas of our lives, showing us how interwoven every part is and how each area either supports or undermines another.
I was introduced to 'Reach' by a friend and was a bit apprehensive about talking to a complete stranger about my problems. However Jo put me at ease straightaway with her calm and warm personality, and I found myself talking non-stop for an hour!
I had not realised how much I needed a safe place to talk through my issues and in the months that followed that first session I came to really value that reflective space.
I did not think that depression could happen to someone like me.
My life was on course...I was a successful businessman earning a good salary with a beautiful wife and two lovely children. We enjoyed a great standard of living and lived in a very desirable house in a nice area.
Dear Reach Approach,
I've only just started meditating and I have to say I really enjoy your guided meditations. What a wonderful variety you provide and all for free! I particularly like Asking for Nothing and I'm going to listen to this one often.
I'd like to thank you, Easton Hamilton, for changing my life, even though we have not met.
I began meditating last year and I feel as if The Reach Approach found me at my time of greatest need. I feel blessed and am full of gratitude for the wonderful work that you are doing.
I want to thank Easton Hamilton at Reach for giving me my life back!
It's a dramatic statement but absolutely true that my life was unbearable when I met him...
My relationship with my wife was at breaking point, and I had turned to alcohol as a coping mechanism. My family was afraid of my erratic behaviour as I was increasingly unpredictable and angry..
I can't remember ever feeling confident and was a very shy child, hiding behind my mother at social situations and feeling embarrassed if anyone asked me a question. My mother told me I would 'grow out of it', but all through my teenage years I was crippled with anxieties about fitting in and looking 'right', and was relieved to leave school and put those years behind me.Read More
Some years ago, after the birth of my first child, I experienced post-natal depression. Anyone who's been through this knows it is very distressing... I felt so alone and couldn't really tell anyone because I felt I was being an unnatural mother.Read More
Having spent most of my adult life travelling across the globe, thinking of myself as really important in my role as a troubleshooter, helping organizations make best use of their human and economic resources, I could never have imagined myself, given my confidence, background and skills, ever needing to sit in front of a therapist looking for help. And yet, that's exactly where I found myself.Read More
