Depression

Hypnotherapy for Depression

Depression is more than feeling blue. It involves more severe, and physically and mentally paralysing
sadness that carries on for over two weeks. Many different situations can trigger the onset of depression, such as job loss, death of a loved one, divorce or separation, bankruptcy, or home foreclosure. People with depression experience strong sense of hopelessness, which makes it difficult for them to deal with their day to day tasks, even the most basic ones like getting up from bed or going to work. They are also likely to isolate themselves due to the belief that they are better off alone or that no one understands them. And because of these serious symptoms of depression, there is no wonder why it is one of leading causes of suicide worldwide.

Hypnotherapy works for depression because it targets the underlying basis of depression, and completes the “unfinished business” that otherwise continues to recycle as self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviours. With hypnotherapy, the person can go down deeper to their traumatic experiences, memories and stored emotions, which means they can quickly release them from the mind and body.

And once these self-sabotaging behaviours get resolved, the patient can utilise hypnotic suggestibility to improve their perspective and functioning. In 2007, research from University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, represents the first controlled comparison of hypnotherapy with a well-established psychotherapy for depression, meeting the APA criteria for a “probably efficacious” treatment for depression. They found that the study participants who went through cognitive hypnotherapy had greater reduction in depression, anxiety, and hopelessness, respectively, over and above those who received cognitive behavioural therapy.

There is a great deal of scientific evidences attesting to the significant benefits of hypnotherapy in the treatment of anxiety and depression. So if you or someone you know who is going through any of these mental health disorders, give hypnotherapy a try.

A chemical imballance? 

For many years it was thought that depresssion was a chemical imballance in the brain that led to low amounts of serotonin. However that theory was called into question many years ago.

For a start we cannot measure serotonin in the brain so it calls into question how you could be prescribed the right amount of medication if you dont know how much of a shortage there is. Also since the brain makes serotonin and other neurotransmitters in an instant your brain chemicals are in constant flux anyway.

Depression seems much more likely to be a reaction to how you see your environment. It can be learnt from others and often runs in families because if people around you act in a certain way it often rubs off.
