What is the difference between feeling a bit down and depression?
If you contrast the feelings of getting a speeding ticket with the death of a close family member or friend you can see the difference in the level of feeling.
The type of depression linked to particular events is one thing, but long standing depression not necessarily linked to any particular event is termed Clinical Depression. If you are suffering from Clinical Depression, then you need to seek medical attention.
How Hypnotherapy Helps
Depression is a condition that millions of people will suffer from at various points in their lives. If you are battling depression you can feel alone and helpless, but the most important thing to remember is that unconditionally positive help is always around the corner. It’s natural to want help and not know how to ask for it, but together we can start to make serious inroads that will help you return to the real you.
Why Do I Suffer From Depression?
This is a complex question to pose, and one which yields deeply personal answers as we are all different. At heart we are all products of our experiences and environments; innate physiological differences could also determine why you struggle with your inner battle whilst those around you appear to be untouched. There is also the distinct possibility that several people you are close to are going through exactly the same things as you without you even knowing it. The most important thing is to never lose heart or to begin to blame yourself. Depression can touch anyone and is never something to be ashamed of.
Understanding Self Defeat
Self defeat is just one of many terms used to describe the patterns of thought which leave people feeling trapped in a permanent state of depression. By understanding how to recognise and react to these patterns of thought we can gradually see the light at the end of the tunnel and return you to the real you. You need to keep faith that you are in there and together we will find you step by step.
Calmness Sets You Free
Hypnotherapy works by transporting your mind to a higher state of calm; one where you feel able to recognise patterns of thought which can exacerbate your depression. It is not a miracle cure that works instantly. Rather it is a journey which allows us to work together and start the process of your recovery.
Our first interaction is a get to know you session where we’ll explore how you’re feeling, where you are today, and where you want to get to. I offer an unconditionally positive environment that accepts the way you feel, and then sets about creating the tools that will allow you to come out the other side. There are no judgements here, only step by step progress as we work together to take you to the place you want to be.
