Depression can be crippling. Unless you've suffered from it, it's a very hard illness to put into words. I have struggled with depression since my teens and, in my darkest moments, I have likened it to standing at the bottom of a very deep well and only sometimes being able to see any light at the top – if you're lucky. But, of course, like so much in life, depression is different for everyone who suffers with it. It is not my intention to tell you how you feel, but simply to let you know that I do have some understanding of what you may be going through. And also why I can speak with some authority about the effect Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can have.
How does Hypnotherapy for Depression work?
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy for depression does not delve into your past or the reasons why you came to be depressed, but instead focuses on how you would like to feel in your preferred future – and helps you get there. Because of this, it doesn't make you even more depressed, like some therapies can. By helping you to concentrate on the positives (and it may not feel like it sometimes, but they are always there), we can teach you coping mechanisms to get you through those negatives times.
Because Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a scientifically-proven 'brain-based' therapy we also explain, in simple terms, how your brain works so you have more of an idea about what's actually going on inside your head – and knowing that depression is due to chemicals in the brain really can help!
So, if you suffer from depression and would like help to lift that awful black cloud, give us a call and pop in for an initial consultation. You'll be surprised at how much difference we can make.*
*Hypnotherapy is an effective method of treatment, however success is not guaranteed and full client commitment is important. For example, listening to our accompanying therapeutic audio tracks between sessions is a vital element in the process and participation is required. This will be fully explained in the initial consultation. Results may vary from person to person.
