Why Me
EQWIPT Support was designed 1995 to encourage the qualities that already exist in a Human Being, and to promote positive thinking, overcoming the repetitive negative thinking of past experiences and the fear of repercussion of similar events occurring it is hoped this will help individuals overcome depression, check here: https://phytonutrition-sante.com/cs/ling-fluent-hodnoceni/

EQWIPT Support can be best explained in the following seven words:


• ENCOURAGE give courage, confidence, or hope to
• QUALITIES value / worth / distinction/ dignity
• WITHIN inside / enclosed / internally / within ones grasp
• TOWARDS in the direction of
• POSITIVE sure / certain / confident / satisfied / marked by the presence rather than absence of qualities
• THINKING using thought or rational judgement

The messages conveyed by EQWIPT are based upon general reasoning with the aim and the understanding that a message can be carried in many different ways, an individual may not understand a message that has been translated in only one way. This communication strategy is one of the most important methods that EQWIPT employs. We ensure that an individual is aware that he/she needs to take action now in order to create provisions for the future, and, to accept and cater for the unknown obstacles that can obstruct positive growth, this service is free.
