Depression

Do you feel sad, anxious, angry or empty?

What causes Depression ?

Nearly everyone will feel sad or depressed at time as it is a normal reaction to loss and life's struggles. However, when intense sadness, such as feeling helpless, hopeless, and worthless lasts days and weeks it can start have a serious impct on the quality of  life.

There is no single cause of depression. It can occur for a number of reasons and has many different triggers, such as upsetting or stressful life events, bereavment, divorce, redundancy, illness, job worries and money worries. Different causes will often combine leaving the person feeling overwhelmed and people often refere to a "downward spiral" of events that lead to depresssion.

Depression affects people in different ways and can result in a wide variety of symptoms:

Alleviate Depression with Hypnotherpay

If you suffer from depression, then its time to change. I can help you through a tailored combination of hypnotherapy and Nero-Linguistic Programming (NLP) which is a effective form of treatment for depression.

 

When you suffer from depression, it feels like nothing can ever help, and nothing will ever change. That is what depression does to your thinking. It makes you feel certain that you can never feel happy again.

It drains the pleasure from things you used to enjoy, makes you see everything through grey-tinted glasses and eradicates hope and energy. In short, depression is a parasite that feeds off your life.

But when you know how depression works; what it needs to sustain it, then you start to gain power over it and hope starts to sprout again.

The very first thing we will do in our session together is to ensure you understand why you are feeling this way. It has a lot to do with the levels of stress you are currently experiencing, which leads to physical as well as mental exhaustion.

Then I will work quickly to help you feel better by using deep relaxation with you. This is to prepare your brain to learn, because as you’ve probably noticed, depression makes it almost impossible to pay attention and retain information.

When you leave my clinic after that first session, I would expect you to feel better than you have in a long time. But of course, depression doesn’t shift overnight. In the following sessions, we will work together to:

  • reduce the amount of worrying and introspection you are doing

  • resolve any practical problems that are causing you stress

  • work on any relationship difficulties you may be having

  • help you balance your thinking so you are not plagued by negative thoughts

  • as you feel better, gradually introduce elements to your life that will protect you from becoming depressed again

Depression can make you feel hopeless and if left untreated can lead to isolation and profound lonelines, affect all aspects of life and personal relationships. However, with the right support depression can be alliviated, enabling you to live a more positive and filfilling lifestyle.
