HYPNOSIS FOR DEPRESSION
Depression currently affects over 16 million adults in the United States. Depression manifests in a variety of different symptoms that make it challenging to both diagnose and treat this extremely common mental disorder. Symptoms may include:
- Trouble concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
- Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness
- Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or sleeping too much
- Loss of interest in things once pleasurable, including sex
- Overeating, or appetite loss
- Aches, pains, headaches, or cramps that won’t go away
- Persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” feelings
Though these symptoms may seem like they would be incredibly noticeable, depression manifests uniquely from person to person. It is possible that you may not notice the symptoms in others. Depression is not simply feeling “sad” all the time. It may come and go in waves, it may be seasonal, or even manifest in women as postpartum depression. It is important that people notice these signs, in themselves as well as others, and seek help when feeling lost, hopeless, or out of options. For overall wellness, one must treat mental health as seriously as physical health, and seek treatment when you notice things are not going well.
Treatments for depression vary from case to case and can include talk therapy, medication, and even exercise. However, many people have sought alternative treatment options to use in conjunction with mainstream therapy methods. More and more patients have begun looking to homeopathic remedies such as hypnosis for depression and anxiety symptoms. Treatments may differ and should always include discussions with your care provider.

HYPNOSIS AS AN ALTERNATIVE THERAPY
Though hypnosis is not a mainstream therapy used to treat depression, it is a growing resource that many people have begun turning to in recent years. In 2016, an estimated 10.3 million U.S. adults aged 18 or older had at least one major depressive episode with severe impairment, meaning it caused problems with relationships, jobs, and overall quality of life. Many have begun using hypnosis for depression because they are looking for a natural way of dealing with their depression that can help them in addition to conventional medicine. In fact, a recent study assigned a group of 84 people to either hypnosis or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and saw greater improvements from the group treated with hypnosis when symptoms were rated on scales such as the Beck Depression Inventory.

WHAT DOES A HYPNOTHERAPIST DO?
A hypnotherapist helps transform negative feelings and behaviors into positive thoughts and actions. A hypnotherapist will be able to help eradicate unhealthy and devastating habits, improve physiological and physical health, offer answers for physical challenges and improve your overall sense of well-being.
Modern Day Hypnosis will use a gentle induction method to help you achieve a deep state of relaxation. As your mind and body become more deeply relaxed, the conscious mind becomes less active, and that means the subconscious mind is free to explore the more challenging issues and problems in your life.
With positive affirmations and suggestions, you will be more willing to accept positive suggestions or remove negative behavior or habits from your daily routine.
YOU’VE PROBABLY HEARD OF HYPNOSIS AND HYPNOTHERAPY, AND ARE WONDERING WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS.
- Hypnosis refers to the process of inducing a more passive state of mind, or trance, and it promotes better communication among the conscious and subconscious mind.
- Hypnotherapy is a psychological healing process that uses hypnosis to achieve the desired result. It attempts to improve your current feelings or behaviors through the use of hypnosis.
What to Expect During Hypnosis?
Not sure what to expect during hypnosis or how many sessions it will take? Don’t worry, your goals can typically be accomplished between one and four sessions. We do not typically go beyond four sessions for any specific issue. The success of your sessions does depend on how you respond to them and how challenging your situation is. For example, quitting smoking can be more intense than trying to cure anxiety.
The main thing to keep in mind is that everyone is different.
We only use techniques that we deem most appropriate for each individual goal or issue. The goal is to enable you to accomplish your desired goals and move on as quickly as possible.
