FACT: according to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression will be the second leading cause of disability in the world by 2020.
Depression is a common cause of relationship breakdowns, career problems, and a lack of motivation.
The most effective hypnotherapy for depression is future oriented or Solution Focused, which means we help you find a way forward rather than looking back at the problems that may have contributed to your depression.
When someone is depressed, typically they withdraw from others and refuse to interact with them, pushing away friends and loved ones and experiencing a general sense of despair or inability to see how their situation can improve.
It often begins so gradually that the individual is unaware that something is wrong, but they gradually withdraw from life.
The severity of the illness can range from prolonged feelings of sadness or inability to ‘cheer up’ to being almost completely dysfunctional and experiencing some of the symptoms associated with it, such as:-
Depressed mood and occasionally fear * Sleep disruption * Energy waste * Weight gain or weight loss * Loss of enjoyment or interest in everyday activities * Thinking, concentrating, and other difficulties * Negative thinking or foreseeing the future in a negative light.
Insomnia, weight loss or gain, and lack of concentration are examples of symptoms that can be treated specifically. Substance abuse, such as alcohol, drugs, or cigarette smoking, can exacerbate or even cause depression.
Depression is one of the most treatable disorders with the right hypnotherapy. Help for depression with hypnotherapy has a significantly lower rate of relapse than antidepressants alone, and is now considered the most effective treatment, even in severe cases, allowing the client to focus on problem-solving and fully engage in life again.
We understand that people with depression have a tendency to think negatively and believe that nothing can help them; this is one of the symptoms of depression.
