Welcome Thinking about therapy or counseling? Want to change your life? Worried you don’t have the time, or money? Getting Strong is a unique, new idea that combines therapy tools with proven adult education techniques. Recent research on Dutch adolescents showed that an online self help education course produced better results than face to face therapy. Graduates of the Getting Strong course are proof of this, listen to what they are saying:  "I came to Getting Strong during a really difficult time of my life.I had been in rut for years, but was unaware of how deep and stressful it was until I had a heart attack at age 42. I realized I needed to make a major change in my life but didn't know where or how to begin. I will be forever thankful I found Jane and that she introduced me to the course, which impacted me greatly. Progressing through the course step by step, I realized that my problems were not insurmountable, and that in fact they were mostly a function of the way I thought about myself--the story that I had created about my life. The final piece was my addiction to online gaming. When all these pieces came together, I knew my life had changed for the better, and it only took me a few days to quit. I became super aware of how Gaming stole hours of my life and while I still think about it, I can confidently say I'm no longer hooked. Thank you Jane, and thanks for creating Getting Strong." Brian M. You can access Getting Strong as an e-course, or a print copy. The e-course version includes video hands on exercises and workbook content, which take you through a step-by-step process to improve your life. The print version does not include video content, but is otherwise identical. Now you can finally create a better life--on your own terms: whenever you have the time, wherever you can access the internet. Created by Jane Damude-Empey MSW RSW, a psychotherapist with over forty years experience, Getting Strong is based on the latest ideas in brain science that show we can change (even our physical brains) just by changing our minds. People who have completed the course have made some of the following changes:   Improved their relationships Felt more confident Found creative solutions to old problems Became more assertive Felt hopeful Felt empowered Given up negative patterns of behavior Enhanced their recovery from addictions of all kinds No matter who you are, or where you come from, if you have a real desire to change your life Getting Strong will offer you the opportunity you have been looking for: a way to become stronger and happier.
