Depression Hypnotherapy

You’re done saying “I’m fine” and you want to mean it. Hypnotherapy can help.

Why do I feel like this?

We all feel a little low sometimes, but depression is much more than just a bad mood. It can leave us unable to interact fully, shrinking our world a little at a time. It’s estimated that 1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from depression, so you are definitely not alone. Depression has its roots in a survival strategy that we’ve had since we first walked the earth – it’s called the “freeze” response. Imagine a caveman or cavewoman looking out of their cave. They see some danger lurking outside and it’s stopping them going out to hunt and gather. In such a situation, they would pull a rug over their heads and they wouldn’t interact until the situation had changed for the better. This saved them from wasting valuable energy and we still have that instinct now, despite the fact that we live in the 21st century with ample quantities of food available. Unfortunately, our brains can start applying the “freeze” response to situations in our modern world where it’s just not required. Luckily, neuroscience shows that we can change the way we respond to the world and that’s where hypnotherapy comes in.

What are the symptoms of depression?

Depression can vary from mild to severe and can result in…

  • Sleep problems, either sleeping too little (insomnia) or difficulty waking up
  • Low mood
  • Avoiding social interactions
  • Feelings of being trapped
  • Loss of appetite
  • Loss of energy
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Difficulty in concentrating and thinking clearly
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Overuse of alcohol or drugs
  • Loss of libido and other sexual dysfunctions

These are just a few of the possible symptoms.

What can be done?

Typically, medication is prescribed for depression and it can help alleviate symptoms. However, hypnotherapy can help change the way your brain responds to the world, reducing the tendency to react with the “freeze” response (which happens subconsciously) and starting to move your life in a more positive direction. Hypnotherapy can help you to produce more and more of your “happy chemicals” such as serotonin which makes a tremendous difference to the way you think and the way you feel. Hypnotherapy can get you there. Are you ready to take that first step and make today Day One? Call us today. We’re ready to help.
