“I felt so low, I just wanted to hide away and not see anyone ever again. I hated feeling this way, as my depression was causing problems at work and with my family, which made me feel even worse.”
Sound familiar? It’s a typical comment made by someone suffering from depression. Not your everyday type of depression that everyone gets now and then, but persistent depression that lasts for a long time and never seems to end. The fact is that depression can hit anyone and at anytime, and although for some it can relieve itself, for others it continues and has a detrimental effect on the lives of not only themselves but people closest to them.
So what causes depression? There can be many reasons why someone develops depression but usually it involves a variety of factors such as stress and anxiety, which in today’s modern society that’s so fast paced and demanding, it’s perhaps not surprising.
The key issue with depression is how to treat it. Traditional medicines and therapies can take quite some time to actually start having any effect, in some cases months, whilst many drugs prescribed for depression are known to have significant side effects. This is why many look to find a way of treating depression naturally. And where hypnotherapy can help.
How does hypnotherapy work?
It works because unlike traditional medicines, it is a natural and safe method of treatment that gets to the nub of the problem. So instead of masking the symptoms or changing the way your body deals with it, hypnosis deals with the reasons why you’re feeling depressed and brings about a resolution of the causes of your low mood . Hypnosis can be successful in treating depression in a relatively short period of time.
