Can Hypnotherapy Help With Depression?
Depression often occurs in response to a traumatic event in a person’s life. The people and situations that are associated with such events are referred to as traumatic triggers. Sometimes hypnotherapy is used to treat the underlying causes of a person’s depression.
Hypnotherapy for depression operates on the 90% of our minds that operate on the subconscious level. The unresolved feelings that are associated with depression are often stored in the subconscious mind and hypnotherapy attempts to treat these traumatic thoughts at their deepest level in the subconscious. It aims to address the memories and stored emotions associated with traumatic events and release them from the person’s mind thus stopping the compulsive thoughts and behaviour that are the causes of depression. In clinical hypnotherapy the fearful repetitive thoughts that lead to depression are replaced with positive affirmations helping to reinforce the emotional release that hypnotherapy brings.
