In the depressed brain the primitive part of the mind is much more active. This part of the brain is normally very negative. This makes us feel hopeless and unable to see a way out. When we feel depressed, we want to naturally stop interacting with the rest of the world. We are much more tired and lacking in healthy energy. We just want to stay curled up in our duvets and shut ourselves away.
Depression takes away our confidence and our ability to remain rational and positive about ourselves and our situations. We feel so low and need some help to get us boosted and back on track again. It's a very negative place to be, our primitive and depressed mind is designed to focus on problems and be vigilantly looking out for danger. In this state of mind, we lose the ability to think clearly and intellectually.
How can hypnotherapy help?
My hypnotherapy program is tailored to you as an individual, we take things slowly at your pace to find a way through depression by taking back control of your mind so you can live your life just how you want it to be.
Hypnotherapy is side effect free, non-intrusive and is the single most powerful psychotherapeutic tool for breaking the negative trance states of depression. However it can be used in conjunction with medication prescribed by GPs to promote a speedy recovery.
The goal of the treatment is not only to reduce or eliminate the symptoms, but also reduce or eliminate the risk of successive episodes. An explanation of how and why the mind works in the depressive state will be given. If you feel like you are suffering from depression, never feel ashamed about asking for help.
