From therapy to medication and healthy lifestyle changes, there are many approaches toward emotional freedom
The first step on the way toward emotional freedom and greater business success
Everyone feels down or anxious now and then. But if depression, anxiety, or a short temper are sapping you of energy and drive, making it difficult to function and keeping you from living your life to the fullest, it’s probably time to take action.
“If your emotional state is interfering with your ability to perform your day-to-day activities and hampering your business and/or personal life, it’s a good idea to look for a solution that will set you free from those emotional patterns,” says ThroughConversation founder Jean-Paul Gravel.
Gravel suggests you ask yourself: How much is it costing me physically, emotionally, financially, socially and relationship-wise to continue living with these issues?
From therapy or medication to healthy lifestyle changes, there are many approaches available, but how do you know what’s right for you?
According to Gravel, just as no two people are the same, there is no “one size fits all” solution for depression or anxiety. The best way to reclaim your life is to inform yourself about your options.
Some counsellors or coaches may showcase their credentials and education, or detail the modalities they learned — all of which really isn’t directly related to whether or not they can help solve your problem. Studies show that on average, therapy or counselling only give an added 20 percent chance of recovery. Rather than asking for their résumé, ask about their track record. You want to know how capable this expert is in resolving what you came for. Are they able to address the deeper underlying cause of why you got here in the first place? Ask questions, such as: what is the end goal in this program; what is the success rate; how long does it take; and how quickly will results be seen? As well, is there support outside of the office sessions in the event that this is needed?
“The treatment should be personalized especially for you,” Gravel says. “A customized coaching program means that you receive exactly what you need, when you need it, at the pace you need, and in the communication style that works best for you so that you get the most out of the work.”
You want to find a coach who is confident in their method, and who takes your success seriously. And you will be much better off if you work with someone who is available if you hit a plateau, and who will give you their full attention to make sure you get to where you need to be.
“Look for someone with predictable and proven results, which can be verified, so that you feel reassured working with that person,” explains Gravel, who for more than 15 years has successfully helped people on their path to emotional freedom.
“You want someone who is confident that they will help you achieve powerful breakthroughs in every area of your life.”
