Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days.
Most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you're depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.
Some people think depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They're wrong – it is a real illness with real symptoms. Depression is not a sign of weakness or something you can "snap out of" by "pulling yourself together".
The good news is that with the right treatment and support, most people with depression can make a full recovery
Depression affects people in different ways and can cause a wide variety of symptoms.
They range from lasting feelings of unhappiness and hopelessness, to losing interest in the things you used to enjoy and feeling very tearful. Many people with depression also have symptoms of anxiety.
There can be physical symptoms too, such as feeling constantly tired, sleeping badly, having no appetite or sex drive, and various aches and pains.
The symptoms of depression range from mild to severe. At its mildest, you may simply feel persistently low in spirit, while severe depression can make you feel suicidal, that life is no longer worth living.
Most people experience feelings of stress, anxiety or low mood during difficult times. A low mood may improve after a short period of time, rather than being a sign of depression.
How can Hypnotherapy help depression?
Hypnotherapy can help find and treat the cause of your depression, help you to function normally without anti-depressants (if applicable) and prevent further depression in the future.
Hypnosis for depression is a permanent solution. Although anti-depressants can be very effective at stabilising mood and are recommended for major types of depression, they don't tackle the reasons or triggers for depression. So while anti-depressants may be sufficient for some people, others prefer to seek hypnotherapy for depression as an effective, permanent, drug-free solution.
During the Hypnotherapy sessions I will teach you tools and techniques to use at home , work or anywhere at any time, to allow you to take control of your thoughts and feelings in a more positive way. Building your self esteem and confidence to be able to cope with any triggers in a more effective way.
