Depression is our body’s way of protecting us from emotional pain
Depression is a direct link to your sense of self-worth and is often driven by the unreasonable belief that you are ‘not good enough’. Depression can be debilitating if you or a loved one has been suffering from this for a while.
Depression creates chemical changes in our physiology, the source normally originates emotionally such as childhood trauma or unresolved grief. There are other triggers too - if as adults we have experienced a series of negative, stressful, or damaging events, we can go through what we call a ‘negative threshold’ which makes us withdraw, feeling unable to cope further.
It’s like a subconscious shut-down and is our body’s way of protecting us from more emotional pain. It can also be caused by repressed anger,
which is the subconscious mind’s way of telling you, in fact shouting to you, that there are unresolved emotional issues that require your attention.
How does hypnotherapy help with depression?
Hypnotherapy can dismantle the beliefs you have acquired at a subconscious level, helping to shift the mental blockages that are preventing you from moving forward. The treatment also helps you to make changes to the way you think, which in turn brings positive changes in behaviours making for a happier life.
