  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy online

    www.livinglifetothefullinteractive.com (For those with mild to moderate depression), also
    Beating the Blues and
    MoodGYM which can help with depression; and
    FireFighter for panic, anxiety and phobias. MoodGYM is freely available from the web and free to use. If you want to use Beating the Blues or FireFighter, you will need a referral from your GP or other service-providers. Some of these are very high quality. Some people may prefer them to seeing a therapist, particularly as a first step. They can help with devising relevant activities, and monitor your progress in graphical form, which may be encouraging.

    Since these links I collected are needed quite often I`ll post them here for easy reference

    Sometimes a talkboard seems to be all there is.

    'Talk' about suicide/ 'announcing it'
    should put up all red flags and be considered courteously and seriously.



    depression forces you to wear a set of very grey glasses/thick mittens so that you cannot fathom colours or textures clearly. (That's how it feels for me)

    Please be aware that you might err on the bleak outlook you have at the moment.

    Please give yourself a pause , a rest from thinking about suicide and

    at least procrastinate doing it/ deciding upon it.

    Suicide may not be the quick answer you are hoping for. Indeed, an attempt may fail and result in greater suffering, such as severe disablement or brain damage.

    Please express your feelings/thoughts nonviolently

    and please grant yourself what you would surely grant a friend: a chance.

    So please do contact people and or sites listed here.
    Oh I think I'm confusing you. :) (or maybe I'm confusing myself?! it wouldn't be the first time).

    "A Friend's meeting, however silent, is at the very lowest a witness that worship is something other and deeper than words, and that it is to the unseen and eternal things that we desire to give the first place in our lives. And when the meeting...is awake and looking upwards, there is much more in it than this. In the united stillness of a truly 'gathered' meeting, there is a power known only by experience, and mysterious even when most familiar." Caroline Stephen, (1908).
