Hypnotherapy for Depression
Depression effects all people from all walks of life, it can bring on feelings of worthlessness, despair and emptiness inside. Unfortunately, depression produces behaviours which then exacerbate further the depression due to less motivation to go out and socialise, exercise and generally look after oneself, this can then lead to a depressed immune system resulting in constant colds, flu and viruses. Depression can be caused by a number of factors, for some people it could be from upsetting or stressful life events, such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries, others may have a chemical imbalance. It may also be caused excessive alcohol, recreational or certain prescription drugs. Sometimes there are no obvious causes
Often people prefer to use their inner strength to pull themselves from this dark place, as opposed to taking antidepressants which can cover the symptoms rather than tackle the root of the problem.
Hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to anti-depressants, however, we do ask all clients suffering from depression that they consult with their GP as medication may also be beneficial.
