“The Recovery Self Help Method is a powerful way to help reduce distress caused by mental health problems and nervous symptoms.
It is a special form of cognitive behavioural training.
The Recovery method has already helped thousands of Irish people live more peaceful and productive lives.
The Recovery method can be used on its own, or at the same time as medication or psychological help.
Research has shown, that people who use the Recovery method use fewer tranquillisers, less medication in general, and need less psychological support from others.
The Recovery method is recommended by leading Irish and US doctors.”
‘Recovery’ provides an opportunity for the patient to learn about self-help and to take over the management of their lives once again. In my experience, practice of Recovery’s self help techniques helps patients respond more quickly to treatment. This can lead to shorter and less frequent hospitalisations, less need for medication.
