Depression

Sometimes events or experiences in our lives can cause us to feel sad, alone and helpless. Occasionally there can be no external reason for this onset. Often these feelings diminish after a short time, but when these feelings continue for weeks and months it can be a very dark and lonely place to be.

Depression, if left untreated, can be detrimental to our physical health, our relationships and our confidence. Depression can hold us back in our careers in our social lives and in our ability to get ahead in life.

Depression can be very debilitating, and at it’s worst, can lead to destructive behavior such as self-harm and even suicide.

Is Depression hanging over your head like a dark cloud?

It can be a very dark and lonely place. Hypnotherapy helps the sun shine through, helping you to see the positives in your life. It also helps you to see a good path forward for yourself, and encourages you to focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.

Struggling to see anything positive?

The depressed brain is starved of positive chemicals and this limits our ability to think rationally and resourcefully. Depressed people usually see the glass as half empty rather than half full. In this primitive part of the brain we are encouraged to think negatively, for our protection as it is always on the lookout for danger. When we are in this state, we lose the ability to think clearly and intellectually.

Hypnotherapy helps you manage the chemistry in your brain to help you move towards an optimistic outlook.
It works by accessing the subconscious mind where we can activate more positive patterns of thinking and behavior. As we clear away the dark fog of depression, your best solutions begin to emerge to help you become your best self.

Hard to get out of bed?

When we are depressed we spend a lot of time focusing on the negative aspects of our lives. Our subconscious mind endeavors to process all these anguished thoughts at night. If there is too much to process, the mind becomes exhausted. So getting a good nights sleep can be a huge challenge and we feel constantly fatigued. When we are in this state it’s common to want to stop the world and get off. It feels easier to just stay curled up under the covers away from the world.

Through Hypnotherapy, and with the help of our complimentary mp3 download, we begin to empty your metaphorical stress bucket. Your mind has less and less to process at night and your sleeping patterns improve, allowing you to wake up feeling more refreshed and positive.

Feel like the rug has been pulled out from under you?

Depression can be such a debilitating and lonely state. When we are in that part of the brain, we are only able to see things from the worst possible perspective and so often we are unable to see any solutions. It can feel as if life is just impossible to manage and that no-one can help us from this standpoint. Depression also eats away at our confidence, so we feel powerless to be able to help ourselves. Feelings of helplessness and that life is hopeless are common when we suffer from depression.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, along with modern psychotherapy techniques, helps you move away from negative and self-defeating thought patterns and builds up feelings of calm, confidence, optimism and self-awareness.

Difficult to concentrate?

When we are overwhelmed with negative self-talk, it becomes difficult to focus on everyday tasks. Often we can neglect chores or elements of our work as it is just too tiring or too hard to concentrate. This can affect our job and our loved ones and send us into a negative, downward spiral.

Hypnotherapy helps you break the negative cycle of depression by changing the focus of your thoughts to more positive and helpful ones. In doing this we are using the neuroplasticity of the brain to create new neural pathways, which become stronger and stronger with use.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is safe, natural and can be used to treat depression alongside other medical therapeutic approaches you may be using in your approach to healing.
