Hypnotherapy is a Safe, Effective, All-natural, Drug-Free Alternative Treatment. Don’t suffer the pain of Depression – Live a free, happy and fulfilled life.
Picking up from where we left off in Part I, where we talked a bit about the history of depression… and how that led to an idea that it is a medical condition caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain… starting a treatment approach using anti-depressant medication… but that theory was never actually proven…
That’s right. The story about Depression being caused by low levels of serotonin in the brain can’t be discredited because it was never actually credited – according to Professor of Psychiatry, Dr David Healy. And because, there are people who’ve been on anti-depressant medication, literally for decades with little to no improvement… it has prompted people to start looking for what else they can do to deal with Depression. Which, let’s face it, depression is not just debilitating at times, but even life threatening.
Hypnosis as an alternative or complimentary treatment for Depression…
Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation; a quietening of the conscious mind. This makes it extremely helpful to slow down those looping thoughts of harsh, critical words that tend to play over and over in the mind of a depressed person. This tends to happen because our mind is scanning the memory bank for ways to identify an explanation for our pain and fix the problem of not having one or more of our inherent needs met. This is part of our survival mechanism to escape the threat of pain.
What are our inherent needs and how does this relate to Depression?
We as humans have a number of inherent physical needs such as air, water, food, warmth and safety in order to survive. We also have a number of emotional and psychological needs such as love, belonging, significance, certainty and variety as well as a need to contribute in order to thrive.
“Depression is caused by not having one or more of our inherent needs met, as well as the looping negative thoughts that play in our mind.”
Hypnosis can help lower cortisol levels (stress hormones), that often go with depression, help improve sleep, increase energy, boost motivation, which in turn boosts confidence and self-esteem and create new neural pathways (aka trains of thought) that are more positive and encouraging. BUT BEST OF ALL… Hypnosis is a perfect way to unlock the subconscious mind to uncover when/where/how/why those looping negative thoughts ever got started and also discover which of our inherent need/s are not being met. Once we understand that, we can work out ways to meet those needs and, through hypnosis, reprogram the mind to be motivated, not only to see things in a more positive light, but also do things which provide proof to the subconscious mind, that life is good and getting better all the time.
How is Hypnotherapy different to traditional talk therapy or CBT?
Hypnosis, and in particular the Rapid Transformational Therapy™ brand of hypnotherapy, is quick. Combining regression, integration and emotional transformation in as little as one, two-hour session. In severe cases of depression it may take two or three sessions with some follow up support calls, but certainly not years and years of rehashing the same issues without ever understanding what to do with them after that. Hypnotherapy gives people a lot of hope that there’s not only light at the end of the tunnel, but there’s a way out of it completely.
