There are times in life when we all experience low mood, but if you’ve been living with these feelings for some time causing you to lose interest in life unable to do things you used to enjoy, then it may be a sign that you’re experiencing depression.
You’re not alone, 4 – 10% of people in England will experience depression in their lifetime and just by making it to this page you’ve started your journey towards a brighter and more optimistic future.
Depression can leave you feeling like you’re stuck under a dark cloud, a low mood which often lasts a long time and affects your day to day life. When you feel depressed it means you feel unable to cope with negative feelings causing you to put life on hold and withdraw from the outside world. Do these sound familiar?
Get in touch to find out how Andrew can work with you at your pace and help you to lift your depression and begin feeling better again.
Depression encourages you to become focused on negative thoughts and forecast the worst-case scenarios, often leaving you feeling hopeless and unable to see a way out. Mild depression doesn’t stop you leading a normal life but makes everything an effort and you lack sense of purpose. More severe depression can be life threatening because it can make you feel like giving up completely.
You can be left feeling unable to cope with negative thoughts causing you to put life on hold and withdraw from the outside world. It takes away your confidence and ability to feel in control making rational decisions instead becoming focused on negative thoughts and forecasting the worst case scenarios, often leaving you feeling hopeless and unable to see a way out.
Sometimes called the happy chemical, because it contributes to our wellbeing, a constant flow of serotonin, a natural chemical produced in the brain, helps us feel more positive and act positively. It means we’re able to cope with day to day life. Every thought and emotion we experience changes our brain chemistry and so the level of feel-good serotonin fluctuates constantly. When we feel depressed, serotonin is low, so it’s no surprise that we see life from the worst possible perspective.
Hypnotherapy sessions explore the ways you engage with life and how doing things differently in day to day life, such as the way we reflect, interact and take action has on serotonin levels and helps you take small steps forward to make beneficial changes which help boost these levels naturally.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to break free from the negative cycle of depression, giving you tools and techniques, you can use to feel better. Hypnotherapy helps boost your brain chemistry naturally to help you move forward and more optimistic.
We’ll work together at a pace that is right for you using a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis techniques. We avoid problem talk, instead, we focus on how you want things to be, rather than dwelling on negative past problems. I’ll also explain very simply how our brains create depression and how this influences your behaviours and feelings which supports you in taking small steps to think differently.
Sessions are consolidated with hypnosis which helps bring about therapeutic change at a subconscious level using guided relaxation techniques allowing your mind to become calmer, so you can focus on moving forwards in life, giving you the support to build new helpful patterns of behaviour so you can feel more positive and hopeful about the future.
