Depression can be a brief episode which occurs only once in your life or a recurrent debilitating condition which affects you psychologically, physically or socially. People with depression often describe feeling tearful, hopeless and helpless. They describe having a lack of energy, physical pains and disturbed sleep. People often avoid contact with others with a loss of interest in previously valued activities.
Hypnotherapy can help by addressing the underlying cause, helping individuals find more effective coping behaviours and decrease the pessimistic and negative thoughts that generally accompany depression. Hypnosis can help develop a more positive outlook by using powerful affirmations and suggestions, empowering individuals and also healing unresolved past events or situations.
