Hypnotherapy for Depression; Depression is a common psychological disorder – anyone can become depressed. It’s more than just feeling unhappy, bored or fed up. If feelings don’t go away quickly, or they start affecting everyday life, it may be time to seek professional help. According to research, approximately one in fo your people in the UK will suffer from a mental health problem at any one time throughout the year – with depression being one of the most common types.
With the right support and treatment, such as counselling and hypnotherapy, people can overcome the common mental health condition.
On this page, we will look at depression more closely, exploring the symptoms, types and causes. We will also look into the different forms of depression treatment, including hypnosis.
Living with depression
If someone has depression, they will find living with the condition hard on themselves, but also their close family and friends. It can affect the way they eat, sleep, work and the way they feel about themselves and their life. Other people may tell them to ‘pull themselves together’ or ‘snap out of it’, but no matter how much they want to, it’s not that easy. Depression is not a sign of weakness as some people may believe, but part of the psychological disorder.
It can be challenging to explain how they are feeling to others. Sometimes they may become overwhelmed with emotion, or even feel emotionless. This can lead to a breakdown in relationships. If depression is untreated, it can have a massive effect on their health, finances, work and relationships. It’s advised to seek help as early as they possibly can by visiting their GP. Many people find hypnotherapy useful for managing several symptoms of depression, alongside other types of therapy such as counselling.
Hypnotherapy for depression
Hypnotherapy for Depression; The aim of hypnotherapy as a type of depression treatment is to target the root cause of the issue and to develop better-coping behaviours. In most circumstances, someone will usually forget or suppress the cause of their depression because of the association with negative feelings. It’s not difficult to forget an event on a conscious level, but it is on a subconscious level. This is why it’s best to confront the issue head-on, rather than burying it, which can worsen their depression.
Hypnotherapy connects directly with the subconscious mind. I will address the perception of the event that has caused my client to become depressed with the aim to improve their self-esteem, mood and help them gain their independence back.
