Lifting Depression with Hypnotherapy


“Depression is being colorblind and constantly told how colorful the world is.” Atticus.

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 guts and brain. To counter this, chemicals are often prescribed in the form of antidepressants (SSRI’s) to help us restore the brain/body responses. However deep relaxation helps to raise the levels of those important chemicals in our body brain axis 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. So retraining the brain by picking up on small good things that have happened in our week can be an effective habit that can change how we view ourselves and the world around us. Our primitive instinctual response when we feel under threat is to withdraw and hide, so not interact with the world around us, which will only exacerbate the situation further.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help the client to see some light in their day, improve the quality of sleep and realise that depression is not all of them. The client starts to regain control of thoughts, feelings and behaviours and focus more on how you want your life to be, enabling you make small changes to get your life back on track.
