High Achievers Like Amy Winehouse Who Crash And Burn - Dr Laurie Pappas Offers Practical Advice And No-Charge Consultations

Press release from: Dr. Laurie Pappas

Amy Winehouse is but the latest example of a highly successful person who came to a tragic and unexpected end. Not all these situations end in tragedy. For many highly successful people, the emptiness they feel manifests instead as depression, lethargy, dissatisfaction, helplessness and hundreds of other debilitating, life destroying conditions.

"When we witness a tragedy such as that of Amy Winehouse," stated Dr. Pappas, "many of us can’t help but have sympathy for this gifted individual, with all of her struggles. Amy was someone who was unable to overcome her fears, insecurities and the overwhelming circumstances of her life. Yet, a happening such as this, asks us to question our own lives, observing our own capacity for hope, our ability to rise above life’s challenges, and our capacity to discover meaning and purpose in our trials."

"I view the challenges of life as good for the soul, in that they can provide the stepping ground for profound awareness and insight. Many who suffer greatly, ultimately become wise about the great truths of living, and often become extraordinary helpers to those in need. Often, those who are sensitive and struggle the most, are the very ones who can experience the most magnificent triumphs if they can manage to persevere, even in the face of great adversity. I believe that hope is one of those things that is always there for the taking, and I urge anyone, anywhere who is grappling with inner suffering, to get the help they need, hang in there, and refuse to let go of hope. If they can, they may find that the outcome is well worth the fight.

Dr. Pappas presents her approach in 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the Journey from Conflict to Peace'. The book is supplemented by a workbook entitled 'The Loving Heart Companion'. Dr. Pappas has included over 30 years of observation and wisdom gained from personal experiences, as well as working with students, clients, family members and colleagues.

Dr. Pappas is offering a no charge consultation to the first three people who contact her with a request. Those who sign up for her email list receive daily inspirational messages to help them reprogram their minds to achieve greater happiness and peace. Participants also receive articles about once per month and a calendar of Dr. Pappas's classes. More information is available at her website.

"This doesn't just affect celebrities like Amy Winehouse," continued Dr. Pappas, "as many people who experience great material, artistic or prominent success in life, upon arriving in the position they thought they wanted, feel an emptiness that they didn’t expect. In addition, frequently they find that they must make great sacrifices to remain in such a place of distinction. Contentment in life, they may or may not realize, may be closely tied to achieving a healthy relationship with themselves, their families and/or some sort of Divine Spirit."

Dr. Pappas also offers phone and in-person spiritual and metaphysical counseling, in addition to life coaching, classes, workshops, speaking engagements and teleclasses. More information on all the resources she offers is available at her website. Specific information on teleclasses is available by email.
