In our complete "Emotional Peace: Strategies For Mental Health and Wellness" course, students will be able to learn fundamental teachings about depression, anxiety, emotions, stress, wellness and how to deal with discomforts and interpersonal challenges
To really live a life filled with hope and freedom, you need to have an approach that puts your values into action while softening any discomfort you are experiencing.
This program uses concepts from proven strategies such as Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Peer Support, Occupational Therapy and my personal experience of successfully living with a bipolar condition.
While this course isn't therapy itself, it utilizes proven principles that can easily be discussed with a variety of counselors. It’s an approach that you customize so it is specific to your values and situation.
With Emotional Peace, you will learn skills and tools to successfully live a desired quality of life, even if you are experiencing discomfort. They are also the same tools I have used to progress from being a patient hospitalized with a severe depressive episode to being a licensed healthcare professional.
Plus, you'll have a template to customize your own plan from 3 simple steps...
Shift your relationship with your experience
Clarify your values
Develop a plan to implement those values into a lifestyle
With a customized plan you will be able to find fulfillment, even during times of adversity. It provides a series of 5-10 minute video lessons on skills like gratitude and acceptance, identifying life roles, and developing a financial framework. You can then customize them to your specific situation.
That’s it—it’s really that simple!
Overall, the subject matter is amazing! I would definitely say that it's a good thing for counselors to get. Really, anyone in the field of behavioral health would benefit from it. This is definitely helpful information for people struggling with a numerous number of issues. Anything from psychiatric issues, trauma, or drug use as well.
As a matter of fact, this wouldn't even be out of place given in schools or as some type of in-service training for kids or something. Very easy to understand, digestible and relatable.

I have found Stephen's course to be extremely helpful and very accessible. I work with many clients who struggle with managing the challenges and discomforts in their lives. This course is informative, engaging, and best of all APPLICABLE. Stephen shares his real-life experiences and the tools he has used in his life with humor and honesty. These tools can be used with ease immediately after watching his 4–6-minute lessons. I can't wait to finish watching and bring these new tools to my clients. Thanks Stephen!

Stephen shares his personal journey of self-discovery to make his coursework relatable. Through his own narrative, he is able to illustrate therapy techniques that make sense in a practical and useful way. Through the coursework, each concept builds on itself making it easy to learn and retain. This is a great course for a clinician to use in sessions or refer patients to so they may utilize this coursework between sessions or at termination of therapy.
Additionally, many of these teachings and concepts can be used by all individuals to deal with interpersonal challenges we all face in our daily lives.
