The Depression and Zest for Life Coach Certification training is the training where you will learn how to expose and transform the inner landscape of depression. This is the first coaching certification training for coaches and therapists! Join us in becoming a Depression & Zest for Life coach!
Depression is as common as the flu. It is expected to be the main cause of disease in 2021/25 (source: World Health Organization – WHO). Sadness, bereavement and sombreness are so common that more and more coaches have clients who experience these feelings. Many therapists know these feelings themselves.
Some mistakenly believe that depression is primarily the domain of “therapy” or psychiatry. But did you know that an average burnout is often associated with depression? And that many chronic problems often have to do with underlying depressive feelings?
Are you aware that clients and even experienced coaches/ therapists can have a hard time to recognize the symptoms of depression? This lack of knowledge makes it very difficult to provide effective guidance. Moreover, standard coaching methods are not effective enough nor focused on these specific problems. Therapist trained in this field experience many challenges in how to work effectively with the depressive feelings.
There is a lot of misunderstanding about depression. People in general, find it challenging to talk about somber feelings. Afraid of being seen as weak and ill. This is already apparent from the fact that it is one of the most concealed problems of entrepreneurs, for example. You can read more about this in the book Happiness is Depressing.
The Depression and Zest for Life Coach Certification training anwsers the questions raised and offers new insights and solutions that are effective and directly applicable. Join us to be certified as a Depression and Zest for Life Coach!
The Depression & Zest for life coach training and the accompanying book ‘Happiness is Depressing‘ aim to support coaches and therapists to work effectively with this very large and often unrecognized group of people.
The training offers coaches and therapists newly developed techniques that are highly effective. This training also aims to give relatives of people with depression (and those who work with this group) insight into the mindset of a gloomy loved one, family member, friend, colleague or client. The latter is crucial for the depressed person and his environment. Learning about the depressive mindset also provides a unique insight into the mental-emotional processes that are essential for understanding zest for life.
The first group of depression coaches already certified in January 2013. The training ‘depression and zest for life coaching’ is taught by NLP Master trainer and neuro-semantics trainer Wassili Zafiris. He developed a holistic method to enable coaches and therapists to work with clients that experience (chronic) gloom. His approach is unique and shines a new light on the genesis of depression and gloom.
Wassili’s method also offers a variety of new techniques for working with clients suffering from depression. He spent 10 years researching depression and was able to uncover surprising new things about how depression comes about, what causes it and how you can work effectively with depression. Wassili has written down his experiences and research in his book Happiness is Depressing (2019, first published in Dutch in 2016).
The goal of this training is to provide insight into how depression and dejection arise and how a depressive gestalt is constructed and transformed. In addition, you will learn a tried-and-tested and new method to help transform depression into zest for life.
This training is mainly intended to provide coaches and therapists the means to recognize the growing group of ‘depressed’ and ‘dissatisfied’ people and to offer the latest tools to stimulate ‘Zest for life’ within these clients. You will become a Zest for life specialist! Ultimately this could mean that you understand how to facilitate the Zest for life gestalt and focus your practice not solely on depression but on how to facilitate a lasting form of happiness, Zest for life!
By becoming a Zest for life specialist you could offer the highest quality knowledge to anybody ‘wanting to just feel happy‘!
The method Wassili developed is based on coaching- and not on therapeutic assumptions. This sheds a new light on transformation of what was thought to be a therapeutic problem. Superficial? By no means, very deep in fact.
