Break free from depression
Depression is a mental health disorder characterised by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable.
Depression can affect a person's thoughts, feelings, behaviours, physical health and ability to cope with daily tasks. It is a common condition that can affect anyone at any age.
Symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but commonly include:
Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness
Loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable
Changes in appetite or weight
Tiredness or loss of energy
Feelings of worthlessness
Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
Thoughts of death or suicide.
There are several possible causes of depression which include genetic, environmental, and psychological factors.
How can hypnotherapy help relieve depression?
Solution focused hypnotherapy can be an effective treatment for depression. It focuses on your strengths and resources, rather than problems and difficulties which can help you feel more positive and hopeful about your future. I encourage you to focus on positive outcomes and help you to develop a sense of control and confidence over your life.
Solution focused hypnotherapy also incorporates elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is a well-established treatment for depression.
I help you to identify and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs that may be contributing to your depression. I also use guided visualisation and other techniques to help you to develop more positive self-talk and coping strategies.
