How to lift depression ... fast


“PLEASE, PLEASE read this book if you have depression or buy it for yourself if someone close to you does. Depression is extremely nasty — extremely disabling and amazingly powerful — and, to conquer it, you need enabling and powerful information. I am evangelical about the advice and theories provided by the ‘human givens' approach and honestly believe that reading this book can do only good for anyone wanting to escape depression — and escape it for good. I hope the content of this book helps you as much as it has helped me.”

I believe that the 'human givens' approach is a major step forward in helping people suffering from depression and other mental health problems.”

“I recommend the book How to Lift Rather than spending months and years exploring all the things that have gone wrong in your life, human givens therapists provide you with the tools, insights and support to turn your mood, focus and life around quickly.”
    Dr Mark Atkinson

“Really easy to read with fantastic tips and explanations. It only takes a day to read this book even if you have trouble concentrating. A worthwhile investment for anyone who has, is caring for, or just has an interest in treating, depression. The best self-help — a few easy adjustments to my life and my sleep is much better and I wake up feeling refreshed (that's in two weeks).”
