Hypnotherapy and Cognitive therapy on the Isle of Wight
Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days.
We all go through spells of feeling down, but when you're depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days
As stated by the NHS, Depression affects people in different ways and can cause a wide variety of symptoms.
They range from lasting feelings of sadness and hopelessness, to losing interest in the things you used to enjoy and feeling very tearful. Many people with depression also have symptoms of anxiety.
There can be physical symptoms too, such as feeling constantly tired, sleeping badly, having no appetite or sex drive, and complaining of various aches and pains.?
Talking Therapies are proven to be effective in the treatment of Depression.
We can create and/or maintain a low mood by allowing our thinking to become poorly-managed and by using our imagination to work against us. This is something that becomes habitual to a point where we don't even realise we are doing it, let alone know how to put it right. We develop the belief that we are powerless to control these thoughts, feelings and symptoms; and that this is something that is happening to us.
Over the course of two to six sessions we will use a combination of discussion, teaching, cognitive exercises and hypnotherapy as tools to achieve the very best outcome for you. I will help you to understand how your thinking is central to the way you feel and how you have the power to create new healthier thinking habits. YOU will take control of your thinking and change your life for good.
