Hypnotherapy and depression
Updated: Jan 24
According to ONS, around 1 in 5 (21%) of the adult population has experienced some form of depression in 2021, an increase since 2020 with 19% of the population affected by depression. The number of people experiencing depression is now doubled to that observed before the outbreak of covid-19.
Depression affects the normal day to day functioning of an individual, however, it is not limited to such person and it has an impact on friends and family around them. The condition affects mood, body and thoughts, although most people never seek treatment for depression, without such a treatment it can last for weeks and months even years.
Hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for depression. Although there is no singly cause of depression, it can occur for a variety of reasons and has multiple triggers. In my practice, I mainly focus on depression arising from psychological causes. Death, loss, divorce, guilt, redundancy, loss of meaning financial and relationship difficulties can contribute to a feeling of sadness, hopelessness or guilt.
Depression is often an output of interpretation of such events as opposed to the events themselves. There are multiple psychological skills that people can learn to improve resiliency and therefore quality of life. It has been demonstrated that such skills can help reduce depression and prevent recurrences. The use of hypnosis by a properly qualified therapist as well as through self-hypnosis can achieve these aims.
Hypnotherapy is an effective tool that can help people just like you to make significant improvements in order to live a happier and more fulfilling life. Please return to my website or blog to find out more about the benefits of hypnotherapy and my offer.
