Depression can be caused by a number things from a bereavement, a lack of proper nutrition, an allergy, a head injury or a relationship breakdown to a postnatal reaction, sleep issues, work-related stress and even boredom or a lack of exercise.
The best way to begin feeling happier and healthier is to approach depression from a number of different ways. This might include developing a healthier diet, becoming more active and working through the mental and emotional issues that are affecting you. Sometimes it may be appropriate to take medication, particularly if there has been a head injury.
Hypnotherapy can help with the mind and emotions. This involves resolving past issues that may be contributing to current day feelings whilst helping you develop techniques to help you feel more relaxed and happy.
How does hypnotherapy work with depression?
Hypnotherapy uses the relaxing state of hypnosis to help make positive changes to the way you think and feel. It is a state that helps you let go of emotions that may be bottled up inside you. It is also a very empowering state that naturally helps you see things in a more positive light.
Although everybody is different and some people respond quicker than others, generally I find that between 2 and 6 sessions can help most people feel much more positive. It’s useful to remember that depression is just your body’s way of telling you to need to change something. Once you are clear what that change is you can soon start feeling better with higher energy levels.
