Hypnotherapy has become recognized as a potentially effective treatment for many individuals with depression. Some recent studies have shown that it is more effective than cognitive-behavioral therapy, which is the most common therapy approach in treating clinical depression.
At Surrey Psychotherapy, we are using psychotherapy & hypnotherapy for helping address the underlying causes of depression as well as help individuals find much more effective coping behaviors. We can also help you achieve a happier mood and decrease or dispel the pessimistic and negative thoughts that generally accompany depression.
Hypnotherapy for this disorder will typically use a combination of suggestion and imagery to bring about positive changes in the unconscious processes of the depressed individual. People who undergo hypnotherapy for depression or anxiety will often experience a new sense of freedom and a greater sense of control over their thoughts, their mood, and their life in general.
Since anxiety often goes hand in hand with depression, hypnosis can also be very beneficial because it helps reduce and often alleviate the anxious thoughts and feelings.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is essentially safe and many clients have benefitted from it for a variety of disorders and undesirable behaviors or habits.
