A friend on mine informed me that there had been an evening’s workshop running at Wat Tyler Park recently on depression. There were approximately 200 people there listening to the speakers.
In relation to the economic climate, people worrying about their jobs, declining health such as Cancer’s and Alzheimer’s disease, life experiences, is it a wonder more and more people are finding it difficult to cope?
In my experience I have always managed to climb back regardless of what life throws at me. But what if you can’t, what happens then? Where do you turn for help, guidance, practical help, support or a kind listening ear?
It would be interesting to find out where people go to get support or help with their depression. Depression may be hereditary, related to life or ill health. What have you found useful if anything that has helped you?
From my experience in the exercise industry and as a trainer to individuals on medication, I have found that regular exercise helps my clients lift their mood in order for them at times just to function. Having someone on side to encourage them to work out and move their body has kept some of my clients going when they had no one else to turn to.
You may not feel that exercise is the answer for everyone, but, I do believe that exercise prescription for depression needs to be more available. Ask your G.P if you feel it is appropriate for you, to enquire if there are any classes or personal trainers in the area.
I am 88 years old, tried to move the sofa in my flat and hurt myself, thanks for gently manipulating me and putting me back together

Training my wife until Alzheimer’s disease really took hold of her, really helped her and supported me. Now I am 87 and 15 minutes gentle and appropriate exercise before my massage has helped me feel better. Has lifted my spirits and got the juices flowing. My back is better too now you have showed me what exercise to do at home to open up the joint.
Your guidance and support has helped me understand that my sister and I are doing the right things for our Mum.
Never once have you made me feel I couldn’t be the best and never once have you given up on me and with constant encouragement.
Reg…. a wonderful series of useful information on memory loss. Jane has helped me understand what we need to be aware of, cope with and plan for as we enter old age. The best part of these books are that they fit in your pocket for easy reference, but, more importantly, the writing is big enough that I can see it.
Once a good Coach always a good Coach…. You have always put my brain back in the right place and it’s the first day my shoulder has not hurt – x
At the time I was not in a very good place you helped me become a fighter, teaching me to zone out of what was going on around me and focus. I still do that today when I am faced with negativity. That day I performed my best a faultless routine a day and performance I shall never forget. The icing on the cake was winning and that I shall thank you forever.
You showed me how to do exercises correctly, now I can do them without causing myself endless appointments at the physiotherapist- you are the best.
