Drug companies used to claim that depression was a ‘chemical imbalance’ in the brain, which could be corrected by taking their pills everyday, forever. It was a false marketing ploy that had nothing to do with science or fact. The truth has been exposed, teher is no such thing as a ‘chemical imbalance’ causing depression.
Depression is experienced as a ‘matrix’ or collection of negative emotions, which may, or may not include (depending on the individual) feelings of;
- anger (directed toward self)
- anger (directed toward others),
- worry and stress,
- emotional hurt,
- feeling trapped,
- feeling “I am just a waste of space/oxygen”
- Depression always brings with it feelings of sadness (unhappiness) and
Here is a simple, yet effective self diagnosis for depression.
If you think you may be suffering from depression you can give yourself a score out of 10 for each of the above 17 negative emotions.
0 = not at all in the past 7 – 10 days.
5 = you have felt those feelings about half the time in the past 7 – 10 days.
10 = you have felt those feelings all the time in the past 7 – 10 days.
NLP and hypnotherapy for depression is very very effective, and can be divided into various psychological disorders such as; postnatal, bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, dysthymia, cyclothymia, schizoaffective and adjustment disorders, however they are all based upon the same emotional feelings of sadness and loss etc. Bipolar is not depression.

Abreactions are strong, often disturbing emotional and even physical reactions to something re-experienced from the past, as if real. An abreaction could re-traumatize rather than achieve the desired healing, particularly if there is no experienced therapist present to ‘rescue’ the patient (when listening to an MP3 at home for example). Our Welcome subliminal messages are abreaction free, you can rest assured you are safe.
If you had a bucket of mud (representing the negative emotions of depression), but you wanted a bucket of clean fresh water (representing positive emotions and behaviors), you could put the bucket of mud under a tap and run fresh clean water (representing subliminal affirmations) into the bucket. But it would take a long time, and you would still have a bucket of muddy water. That is an analogy of how most subliminal affirmation downloads currently available on the Internet work, or perhaps do not work. Peter Zapfella uses his one-on-one therapies to ‘throw out’ or delete the mud (representing the negative emotions and behaviors of depression) and then you can choose to use the ‘Welcome’ Subliminal Affirmations to quickly and efficiently refill the bucket with fresh clean water (representing positive emotions and behaviors). No mud, no depression!
Psychotherapy for depression usually takes weeks, months, even years discussing your past and how you came to be depressed. In most other cases it only makes money for the psychologist or counsellor while the patient continues to suffer or worse. A much faster and effective approach is to guide the unconscious mind to forget the negative emotions in the past, accept the learnings from those experiences, then replace them with positive and healthy thought patterns. The ‘Welcome’ Life Beyond Depression MP3 re-interates these new positive and healthy thought patterns. These positive affirmations build new resources at the deep unconscious, beyond depression.
Everyone of us is unique. We have all had different life experiences and we react to them differently too. Most people with depression can respond well to one-on-one psychotherapy tailored to the individual, using Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnotherapy and perhaps cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). That is why Peter Zapfella suggests you start with one-on-one therapy using Skype and then use the ‘Welcome’ subliminal affirmations to ‘lock-in’ the unconscious shifts long-term.

Peter Zapfella’s ‘Welcome’ Subliminal messages are like a caring parent or good friend who is inspiring you to develop new behaviors, habits, and beliefs that you already know you want and need to develop a happier, better life. They motivate you to change for the better. They focus your unconscious mind, and encourage it to make positive changes as it hears the messages are constantly repeated.
These subliminal messages are simply ‘obscured’ from the conscious mind within masking music and environmental sounds to prevent conscious analytical thinking, which may otherwise ‘filter out’ these messages. The more they are repeated, the more they are uncritically accepted by the unconscious. A simple message, repeated enough, will become a new unconscious belief beyond depression.
If you listen to this MP3 while sleeping, on ‘repeat’ your unconscious mind will hear this message almost 500 times every night.
Subliminal Affirmation Text:
“You release the past memories of sadness now. You release the past memories of loss now. You release past anger now. You release past hopelessness now. You release past helplessness now.
You recognize the good and happiness in everything. Even the smallest things offer an opportunity to find the good and happiness. You are more and more calm and peaceful now.
Now you eat more healthy foods. Now you do everything in moderation.
You are now more clear in the mind, more relaxed in the body, you are more confident and coping better with everything and everybody, because you know you are free of that old sadness and depression from the past.”
