Depression is not just a short period of time where you experience a low mood but a mental health disorder than is much more significant. We all suffer from periods where we are temporarily unhappy but depression can last for months and in some cases years severely impacting our well-being. As a psychological illness it can create a huge impact on your life and left untreated at the extreme it can create suicidal thoughts. This is why when your GP diagnoses you with depression it is important to get help to manage your condition. Doctors in many cases will prescribe drugs which are important for some people managing the problem but there are also natural ways in which it can be helped. Talking therapies are known to make a difference which is why many people choose to use hypnosis as an alternative to medication. Our Hypnotherapy for Depression in Nottingham is designed to help you overcome the issue and to tackle the underlying cause of your problem.*
Not every form of depression is exactly the same but here are some of the common symptoms that you may be experiencing if you are suffering from the problem:
- Feeling Lonely
- Negative Thoughts
- Problems Sleeping
- Lack of Energy
- Lower Libido
When you have these feelings and thoughts it can significantly impair your day to day life. For example you may find it difficult to go to work, your relationships start to suffer and it is not unusual for people to also self medicate to try and deal with the problem. For some this means drinking too much or taking recreational drugs to try and escape from the feelings.
Why Do You Get Depression?
Depression is generally triggered by events that happen in your life which overwhelm you. Typical reasons why the problem starts are:
- Unhappy Childhood
In some cases there is more than one event which means that the problem is amplified making if feel too difficult to tackle. At Balance Hypnotherapy we help clients who suffer from mild to moderate depression change their subconscious thought processes. For example if your depression has been triggered by anxiety we work with you to determine what is creating the anxiety and then help you reduce that stress so it becomes more manageable and eventually fades away. Our Hypnotherapy for Depression in Nottingham is a calming and relaxing way for you to regain control.*
Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression typically go hand in hand and it can seem difficult to find out which one may have started first. We know that if you are able to reduce or eliminate one of the problems the other is likely to follow as well. As hypnosis is an incredibly deep state of relaxation it is a fantastic way of reducing stress and therefore anxiety. It is also a great way of getting to the root cause of a problem so that it is easier to understand where to target therapy. Please note that if you believe you have severe depression then we would always request that you get your doctors permission first before arranging to see us.*
