We all have bad days feeling down and the outlook looking bleak. It’s normal –…
Anxiety and Depression Experience
“To say I felt alone would be an understatement. To everyone outside of my bubble, it looked as if I was happy, however on my own at night I would cry myself to sleep. I felt so low, almost suicidal and I couldn’t talk to anyone about how I felt. It was the loneliest place in the world and the darkest.”
Depression and anxiety are common psychological problems that many people experience in their lives to a lesser or greater degree. If left untreated this form of mental anguish can have a profound effect on an individual. Some people do the best they can to cope on their own and try to mask their symptoms from others. However, ignoring or denying these painful feelings and not seeking help may cause the problem to worsen.
Why am I Anxious and Depressed?
There can be many reasons why people become depressed and anxious. It may be due to stressful circumstances within the family or work related problems. Other’s suffer due to unresolved issues from childhood where painful experiences have never been expressed. The key to finding a solution and respite from these debilitating conditions is to gain personal insight into the reasons for your depression and anxiety.
Treating Anxiety and Depression
One of the main problems with treating depression is that the pharmaceutical methods such as drugs can take quite some time to actually have any effect. Coupled with the fact that many of the prescribed medications have some unfortunate side effects, it is easy to see why many people turn to more natural depression treatments.
Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression
Hypnotherapy is one such form of treatment that has been clinically shown to help people in beating depression and anxiety. The reason for this is that unlike many treatment options, especially prescribed drugs that simply mask the symptoms, hypnosis allows a trained practitioner to find out what is really causing the depression and anxiety. By finding out the root cause, and providing help and support, painful symptoms can significantly improve.
