Relief from suffering*


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 non-medical way to deal with it? If the answer is ‘Yes’ then read on.woman 2 depressed

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 a non-medical way to deal with eating disorders, anorexia and bulimia, weight problems and obesity.

Adaptation Practice*

In 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.

You can contact Clive Sherlock* here and ask for a free introductory session and clive-sherlock-2013start 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.

Withdrawal from drugs

If you are taking prescribed drugs for depression and anxiety, and you want to stop them, you can safely come off them 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, with help from a specialist  in stopping prescribed drugs, you can reduce the dosage while developing your own strength to cope. Then you will have less need for drugs or therapies. You can cope with it all yourself.


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 Clive Sherlock here.

* NB Adaptation Practice is not a medical treatment and although Clive Sherlock trained and worked as a hospital doctor in the British National Health Service he is not providing medical services. He does not regard depression, anxiety, anger and stress and related conditions to be medical diseases. Like other research workers, he regards them as normal emotional reactions to difficult, disturbing and threatening circumstances.
