Evening courses

Ending depression and coming off anti-depressants

Eight evening sessions over approximately ten weeks

When we take medication for one illness it can often be needed at the time, but the medication in itself changes our brain chemistry and can create an addiction and second illness.

Once we cure our original problem, for example: depression. When we come off the medication we may then feel depressed again and go back on it. But often it is not our psychology or natural brain chemistry that is the problem, but the medication itself.

By learning how to energise and stimulate our own glands with simple breathing practices and clear intentions we can reduce medications, such as antidepressants, as we rebalance our own brain chemistry, while coming off any medication.

We can also use these same breathing, energy and body practices to help us take trauma out of the body. Trauma that often creates the emotional imbalances that lead to the psychological illnesses and depression in the first place.

This 10 week course includes:

  • Eight three hour evening sessions in a small group maximum of 12 participants.
  • The basics of Masculine Feminine Polarity Work, using the maps to gain fresh insights and perspectives for life.
  • Shaking, breathing, and self bodywork to release trauma, emotions and change our brain chemistry.
  • Creating clear intentions for each participant.
  • Light email support during and after the course.


  • Work sheets for breathing and body exercise to practice at home.
  • On-line Facebook group to keep each other motivated during and after the course.
  • Private body work sessions with Elliott at 20% reduction for the first 3 sessions (reduction valid 6 months from the course start date).

This course is for designed for people who are coming off medication responsibly and who are in communication with their doctor, but it is open to anyone who feels this type of continuous work in a group setting can help. Feeling depressed and considering medication, or just generally interested in the course for their all round health. No medical or advice about medication is given, and it is participants own responsibility to communicate with their doctor before reducing medication.

Everybody is different but as a general rule, starting these breathing and movement practices before adverse symptoms occurs is best.

Starting because adverse withdrawal symptoms have arisen is not advisable, and you should consult your Doctor.

The workshop and all communication is in English. Basic English is needed and informal translation of larger words and concepts is encouraged during the sessions.

It is best to commit to and attend all 8 sessions, but if for unforeseen circumstances you do miss a session you will be emailed and invited to come slightly earlier to the next session to catch up.

All participants are invited to write about their experiences anonymously after the course to support these practices becoming more widely available within the healthcare system.

The course is CHF590

thank you for the nice workshop and session 🙂 I feel that it has changed somethings in my life.

It helped a lot to understand and let go of things in the past, and to see things from a new perspective. I felt some emotions that I haven’t felt for a long time. Its amazing to the experience the effects energy can have on the body... so much more than just talking about or analysing certain problems. Warm regards

Freiburg, Germany

I can only recommend the work of @Elliott - amazing work!

Zürich, Switzerland

Hello Elliott, I want to thank you again for the workshop. It really meant a lot to me. I needed to learn how to release the energy because it has been building up inside me and is so intense that it can actually hurt. When you were introducing the topics of energy I related to everything you said, so it was great to hear how much of what I experienced is true for others. Thanks again, and all the best,


I want to thank you so much for this amazing workshop. Me and my body felt very safe with your work . You and the group created an open space for more possibilities and healing. My body liked the breathing and shaking, touching and very important the connecting to the earth. Afterwards I felt relaxed and open, really recognising my connection and energy in my lower half. My stomach was very relaxed.


I’ve already had 4 sessions with Elliott and visited one of his workshop. Every single session felt a bit life-changing. Before I met Elliott, I knew, that there was still a lot of trauma and pain deep inside me. I wished to let it go but had no idea how, and I had no idea of how light and vibrant the body would feel without all the old stuff, or how much energy this letting go would create in my life! After releasing emotions and trauma in session one and two, the third session was one of the most pleasureful energetical things I have experienced. I have no words for that what it was 🙂 But this strong feminine power energy carried me over several weeks and let me glow 🙂 The fourth session was a kind of detoxing. Elliott uncovered a point that I was holding on so tight, I did not dare to show, did not dare to come to the surface… But it came. And over days my body started a real detox. It is amazing how professional Elliott can handle and transform all these emotions and energies that the clients set free. Elliott, I thank you so much that you share your biggest gift with us.


Hi Elliott, thank you for this great workshop. I look forward to working with you privately
