Depression is a common mental health problem that causes people to experience low mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-esteem, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration. Most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you’re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. Some people think depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They’re wrong – it is a real illness with real symptoms. Depression isn’t a sign of weakness or something you can “snap out of” by “pulling yourself together”.
During the initial consultation, I will explain how the brain, how depression is created. How we suffer in the way we do and what we can do about it. This explanation will help clients gain an understanding of why we feel the way we do and also helps clients identify how they want their lives to be in the future.
Subsequent weekly sessions will focus on positive, future visualisation and hypnosis.
Solution focussed hypnotherapy helps clients regain control of their lives and move forward positively and effectively. The effectiveness of the therapy relies on the clients motivation to make positive changes.
