Have you ever wondered how to escape from depression? Or indeed, how to help someone escape from such a prison? This book finally opens up the doors to a mysterious world that an outsider cannot normally experience. Up until now, there existed an almost unbridgeable gap between the ‘normal’ world and the ‘depressed person’s’ world. Using a personable and honest narrative, the text provides a unique window of experiential understanding, whereby the sufferer can feel truly helped, and no longer alone; by accompanying someone who has really been there too.


Using a unique approach, interweaving three different strategies comprising hard-won personal experience, a practical cognitive tool-kit that works and God’s living word full of wisdom and truth, the author sign-posts for the reader the pathway towards a real and lasting freedom; a freedom which sometimes challenges our worldly notions of life and success that tend to keep us imprisoned and enslaved.

The book is a powerful and inspiring portrayal of upheaval and renewal, demonstrating to the reader that a strong backbone for life can come from an often overlooked source.

Alec Hargreaves, descendant of the writer William Harrison Ainsworth (18051882), was born into a family where storytelling was seen as the norm.

After a ten-year career in driver training, he took a keen interest in the human mind and went on to study counselling and psychotherapy, whereupon he was awarded the CPCAB Advanced Diploma.

He then went on to study with the Open University for four years, successfully graduating with a BA(Hons) in English language and literature.

He has travelled extensively throughout Asia. Whilst living in South Korea, he wrote and published a collection of short stories titled Approaching Midnight. He currently lives in England with his Korean wife, Kate, who is his life-long companion, inspiration and travelling partner.
