Using Hypnotherapy To Control Depression

Using Hypnotherapy To Control Depression

Hypnotherapy can help you understand and resolve depression



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, and ultimately, restricts the enjoyment of your life.

We are all susceptible to depression when life gets on top of us. Feeling depressed may be a response to certain occurrences in life, or to certain basic human needs not being met.


Depression affects people in different ways but common symptoms include insomnia, fatigue, poor concentration and memory as well as feelings of despair and helplessness.

Hypnotherapy treatment, carried out whilst in hypnosis, can greatly assist this condition by lowering levels of anxiety and stress, increasing self confidence and exploring past memories, relationships and life experiences.

Hypnosis can help identify the root cause of your depression and help work through your emotions and reach understanding and happiness.

Hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to anti-depressants.
