Depression is a common psychological disorder and almost anyone can be affected at some point during their life; research suggests that between 5 and 10% of the population suffer from depression to some extent at any one time. It is important to recognise that there is a vast difference between feeling down one day and having a depression disorder. If feelings don’t go away quickly, or they start affecting an individual’s everyday life, it may be time to seek professional help.
Many different situations can trigger the onset of depression, such as job loss, the death of a loved one, divorce or separation, bankruptcy, or home foreclosure.
People with depression experience a strong sense of hopelessness, which makes it difficult for them to deal with their day to day tasks, even the most basic ones like getting up from bed or going to work. They are also likely to isolate themselves due to the belief that they are better off alone or that no one understands them.
Stress, misery, or uneasiness can trouble a sufferer during work and social situations to such an extent that they begin to isolate themselves. In short, persistent melancholy, a low state of mind, sentiments of sadness, low confidence, absence of energy, and disrupted sleep may indicate depressive illness.
Rather than treat the symptoms of depression, hypnotherapy aims to tackle what triggers lead to your depression. When the root cause of your depression has been addressed, suggestion techniques can be used to encourage a more positive mindset.
