Relief for depression and anxietyclive-sherlock-2013

Do you suffer with stress, anxiety, anger, depression or some other difficulty with how your moods and feelings affect you? If so, do you want a safe and reliable way to deal with it? If the answer is ‘Yes’ then read on.

You can learn how to cope with moods and feelings and live a full and enjoyable life. It takes time but, like everyone else, you can do it if you are willing to try.

As well as these problems, you can also learn how to deal with eating disorders, anorexia and bulimia, and so with weight problems and obesity.

Withdrawal from drugs

And, if you are taking medication for depression and anxiety, and you want to stop it, you can safely come off the drugs under supervision as you develop the ability to cope with the unpleasant sensations and feelings of withdrawal. You should not stop them abruptly. Gradually, very gradually, you can reduce the dosage while developing your own strength to cope. Then you don’t need drugs or therapies. You can cope with it all yourself.

Adaptation Practice

AP NewsletterIn Adaptation Practice training starts with what we can do – not with what we cannot yet do. Like developing muscular strength practice develops emotional strength. The stronger we become, the more we can bear and cope with, which transforms the emotion and relieves the suffering of stress, anxiety, anger, depression and disturbed behaviour. The emotion then motivates us and gives us more energy. We get our life back and enjoy living again.

Adaptation Practice is not an easy quick-fix way, but then the roots of suffering are so deep in us that there could not possibly be an easy and quick way of relieving it. It is a realistic, safe and effective way that anyone can follow provided he or she is willing to try. This is why the same practical training, which has been developed in China and Japan by Zen monks over the centuries has stood the test of time. Yes, all this has been known and passed on from teacher to student in the same way as we now practise it today. It has relieved suffering for thousands of people. It is not a theory or a belief. It is facing life as it really is instead of being caught up in our worries and ruminations.

You can contact Clive Sherlock here and ask for a free introductory session and start training yourself the same day. You can join the growing community of thousands of people who were struggling just like you and who now live fulfilling and enjoyable lives. Read what others say about Adaptation Practice here.


Adaptation Practice is available one-to-one and in groups. It can be face-to-face or online by Skype, FaceTime or email, or by telephone. If you would like to know more, or to book a free initial discussion, contact Dr Clive Sherlock here.

ps As a doctor I would advise you, if possible not to take prescribed medication for the above conditions. The scientific evidence shows that antidepressants and tranquillisers like fluoxetine (Prozac) and diazepam (Valium) can make the conditions they are meant to treat worse. They can make them recur. They are addictive, causing severe symptoms when trying to stop them; symptoms that doctors often mistakenly think are due to the original condition – depression or anxiety – and so prescribe more drugs. If you are already taking any then do not stop them abruptly or without supervision from a specialist in drug withdrawal. For more information about this see the blog posts ‘All-Party Parliamentary Group for Prescribed Drug Dependence’ and ‘Psychiatric drugs can seriously damage your health’ (which contains a video by a world expert) and contact Dr Sherlock.
