Grief, Depression and Hypnotherapy
Depression is a condition in which a person feels discouraged, sad, hopeless, unmotivated, or disinterested in life. Major depression is a treatable illness that affects the way a person thinks, feels, behaves, and functions. In 2015, around 16 million adults aged 18 years or older in the U.S. had experienced at least one major depressive episode. In women depression tends to manifest as sadness, worthlessness, and guilt. In men it manifests often as tiredness, irritability and anger. Men also tend to not recognize that they are depressed and fail to seek help.
Grief is a natural response to losing someone or something that’s important to you, leading to a variety of emotions, like sadness or loneliness. Maybe a loved one died, a relationship ended, or you lost your job. Other life changes, like chronic illness or a move to a new home, can also cause grief. Coping with losing a loved one is one of life's great difficulties. If you have experienced the pain of mourning, you know that any way to ease the loss is welcome. While our knowledge and study of grief continues to evolve, it's important to note that not everyone grieves the same way. If you understand your emotions, take care of yourself, and seek support, you can begin to heal.
Research has shown that holistic healing techniques benefit individuals suffering from grief and depression, supporting greater emotional and physical well-being. Hypnosis for depression helps you release many of the negative thinking patterns, bad habits, and suppressed memories that negatively limit the mind. At the same time, hypnosis can improve your coping abilities, can help you get in touch with past positive memories, and can enhance the effectiveness of mainstream psychotherapy depression treatments, such as cognitive behavior therapy.
