Lifting Depression with Hypnotherapy

Depression is perhaps the most common psychological disorder today; it affects our relationships, our sleep, our physical health, career and the ability to get things done. People go through life thinking that it is just a part of them that cannot change.

Depression is not who you are. Depression is very treatable and can be helped effectively with Hypnotherapy.

Waking each day, feeling happy, energised and positive is normal after a good night’s sleep and all the natural chemicals, hormones and impulses in your brain are functioning at their best. During episodes of depression not enough chemicals, notably serotonin are produced in the brain. To counter this, chemicals are often prescribed in the form of antidepressants (SSRI's) to help us restore the brains responses. However, deep relaxation, positive thinking and behaviour, all help to raise the levels of those important chemicals in our brain, which is why Hypnotherapy can be so effective.

In addition, modern research indicates that depression is more likely to be the result of negative thought patterns, rather than specific events. Our primitive instinctual response when we feel under threat is to withdraw and not interact with the world around us, which will only exacerbate the situation further.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help to lift your mood, improve your sleep and gain a more positive perspective on life. As you regain control of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours you focus more on how you want your life to be, enabling you to get your life back on track.
