If so, you have found the right place. This could be your chance to break through the barriers and become free to flourish again.

Known as the 'Human Givens' approach because of its foundation of 'givens' or bedrock truths, the ideas have shed new light on what depression is:

The symptoms of depression arise when excessive worrying upsets the balance between the amount of energy burned during REM sleep and recuperative slow-wave sleep. The result of this imbalance is that depressed people wake up tired and unmotivated.

From this understanding of depression, coupled with the first comprehensive explanation of why humans dream (or more particularly, the function of the Rapid Eye Movement sleep phase) the Human Givens provides practitioners with simple, drug-free, and effective therapeutic techniques to lift depression for good.
