    Many who find their way to this page are lost in depression and believe there is no easy way out, including effective counselling for depression. Their GP has not been able to help. Or anybody else for that matter.
    BUT, your depression is in fact easier to understand than you could ever have imagined and depression recovery is there waiting for you. I am the Depression Optimist. Depression Recovery with effective counselling, tailor-made audios and a track record of success.

    Is this true for you?

    Exhausted all the time and lacking energy and motivation. And being trapped in their thoughts and emotions without hope of escape
    Sleeping and dreaming a lot, with too much introspecting, ruminating and awareness of past trauma and disappointment.
    Collapsing self confidence and self esteem with isolation from friends and society and perhaps failing with basic life tasks..
    Aware of enduring physical aches and pains which appear to have no physical cause.
    Your mind is not working – failing to concentrate, recall clearly and enjoy simple pleasures.
    As hope fades and exhaustion sets in they find that all areas of life are affected – family, work and meaning.

    How can I help you?

      A few words about me, Andrew M Richardson

      Andrew M Richardson
      I am not your typical counsellor. First off, I am now in my late sixties and am pretty well housebound with an atypical type of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This affects my mobility but nothing much else as otherwise I am pretty healthy (touch wood).
      My record and many testimonials show that I am an excellent therapist. Why is that? I believe it is because my background in business plus my Human Givens training and having to live with chronic MS gives me an authority and flexibility that puts clients at their ease and means they can have confidence in my approach.
      Clients come to my home in Cornwall. I also see clients from all over the world using Skype and Zoom – as well as through the length and breadth of the UK.
