3 Ways Hypnotherapy Can Be Used to Treat Depression

If you are dealing with depression, you are sure to understand just how difficult it can be to get better. It’s easy to feel like you are drowning and can’t get out. But there is relief! While it may seem like an impossible task, with time and the right help by your side, you can get started on working towards enjoying your life the way you should.

Hypnotherapy is the use of psychotherapy and hypnosis to get to the root of the problem and find a way to take control of your thoughts and feelings. The first session will not involve hypnosis. Instead, it will be about getting to know you. Looking at your past, present and future and starting the relationship between you and your therapist – me!

Following this initial session, your next session may involve the use of hypnosis. There are three different ways hypnosis can help with depression and similar issues:

  1. It can bypass the critical faculty of your conscious, which enables your subconscious mind to accept suggestions for serenity and positivity.
  2. Hypnosis accesses your subconscious mind, in turn allowing you to discover the root cause of your depression and any unconscious limiting thoughts which contribute to your negative feelings. Having access to the root cause also allows you to untangle yourself from the emotions of the past.
  3. Self-hypnosis techniques give you the power to gain control of your thoughts and feelings and improve how you feel and think about things.
