Adaptation Practice (Ap)
Ap is a unique, safe and reliable way to relieve stress, anxiety, depression, disturbing behaviour and related conditions, without antidepressants, tranquillisers or psychological therapies. Ap is unique in its understanding and approach: it is not a medical or psychological therapy. You can read what has been said about Ap. There are feature articles in The Times and The Guardian, testimonials from people who practise Ap, and a study in the British Journal of Medical Practitioners (BJMP).
Hello, my name is Clive Sherlock. I worked for many years as a hospital psychiatrist in the UK National Health Service (NHS), where I saw, first-hand, how all too often the treatments we were giving caused unpleasant and serious side effects – including addiction and suicide. Because of our lack of understanding and safe treatment of conditions like stress, anxiety, anger and depression, I pioneered a radically different approach – Adaptation Practice (Ap) – and have taught it ever since.
Training in Ap
Ap is taught in person in Oxford and London, and worldwide online via Skype and FaceTime.
If you think you might be interested in the Practice, why not try a short and simple introductory exercise? With a brief description of how the Practice works, you can try a simple but illuminating exercise. You might find it reveals something about yourself that will surprise you. And then you can contact me if wish to know more.
Please take a look around the site to learn more about Ap. Perhaps a good place to start would be to read the feature article in The Times: Train your mind to fight depression by Anjana Ahuja.
and one in The Guardian: Depressed? Go and clean the kitchen by Anne Garvey.
