Using Hypnotherapy to Control Depression

HYPNOTHERAPY CAN HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND AND RESOLVE DEPRESSION

The most effective way to treat your depression completely and permanently is to resolve what’s causing it; if there is no longer any cause, there can be no effect.

So why do you have depression? You have probably puzzled over this many times before. Looked for reasons, triggers behind it. Perhaps you think you know why; your mum, sister, or other family member has it too. Or maybe it was triggered by a traumatic or upsetting event. But knowing this doesn’t make the problem go away. Or maybe you can’t think of any reasons to explain it. But that doesn’t mean there is no cause, because for something to exist it has to have been created. It has to have come from somewhere. And there has to be something maintaining it.

 

Depression is an extremely debilitating illness which not only affects you, but also your family, friends, your employment, self esteem, depressed anxious womanand ultimately, restricts the enjoyment of your life.  We are all susceptible to depression when life gets on top of us.
