Hypnotherapy for Depression

Depression is possibly the most common psychological challenge these days.

But with Advanced Medical Hypnotherapy, it is also one of the most treatable!

We often use the expression ‘I feel depressed’ when we’re feeling sad or miserable about life. Usually, these feelings pass in due course.

But, if the feelings are interfering with your life and don’t go away after a couple of weeks, or if they come back, over and over again, for a few days at a time, it could be a sign that you’re depressed in the medical sense of the term.

In its mildest form, depression can mean just being in low spirits.  It doesn’t stop you leading your normal life but makes everything harder to do and seem less worthwhile.  At its most severe, major depression (clinical depression) can be life-threatening because it can make you feel suicidal or simply give up the will to live.

There are also some specific forms of depression:

  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) – this is seasonal depression which is related to day length. It usually comes on in the autumn and winter, when days are short and the sun is low in the sky and gets better as the days get longer and brighter.
  • Postnatal Depression – many mothers have ‘the baby blues’ soon after the birth of their baby, but it usually passes after a day or two.  Postnatal depression is a much more serious problem and can occur at any time between two weeks and two years after birth.
  • Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression) – some people have major mood swings when periods of depression alternate with periods of mania.  When manic, they are in a state of high excitement, and may plan and may try to carry out over-ambitious schemes and ideas. They often then have periods of severe depression.

Prolonged periods of Depression can lead to serious health complications

Sometimes, the pressures of home, work or even social factors conspire to cause the mind and body to respond with StressAnxiety, Anger or Depression.

Depression can sometimes be mild.  Sometimes, it is little more than a prevailing mood or emotion or it can leave you feeling fearful.

It can interfere with sleep, which in turn can add symptoms of Stress and Anxiety.

Depression can cause loss of appetite and energy, which could further manifest in additional physical and emotional issues.

It can cause a disconnect with fun, pleasure and leisure activities and often this will exacerbate the situation.

It can also impair concentration, creating difficulties in thinking and carrying out mental activities.

Any or all of these can therefore further aggravate any of the external pressures listed above.
