Do you suffer from short or long-term depression?
Do you feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders?
Have you just felt like locking yourself away from the world?
Is it time for you to get really good professional hypnotherapy help to change your mood fast?
There are two kinds of depression: endogenous and exogenous.
Endogenous depression is when you are suffering from bodily imbalances, for example hormonal disruptions, effects of operations or illness, disease, toxicity or malnutrition.
In modern culture depression has become an epidemic because people work too hard and the body goes into organ and systemic collapse. We are economically wealthier but poorer health-wise.
Endogenous depression can be helped by hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling.
Since I am also a naturopath, I may be able to help you in overcoming depression without medication.
I may order blood tests or look at any other reasons why you are experiencing depression caused by a physical condition.
It is very important to find the reason that this is happening to you so it can be managed and eliminated where possible.
Exogenous depression is also known as reactive depression and is the result of the way in which you are unable to process life events.
I have worked extensively with people overcoming depressive episodes in their life as well as trauma recovery. I contributed a chapter to the book Women and Depression published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing and presented at the Women in Depression Conference in Sydney.
I also wrote a best-selling book on recovering from trauma fast, whose methods I teach in my clinic.
If you are reading this and been taking anti-depressants it is clear they have not been working for you. In fact research suggests that they are far less likely to work than therapy, making therapy generally more effective with faster results.
Did you know that depression needs to be treated from a multi-faceted approach?
You may have experienced a traumatic or stressful event or time that has worn you down. You may feel defeated, tired and cannot be bothered with life.
You may not want to engage with the world or other people in case you get further damaged. You withdraw from the world, go inside and become an introverted, depressive personality.
While there are many ways to overcome depression, treatment of both types of depression can be done with hypnotherapy with a high rate of success.
Because depression creates a certain set of defeatist mindsets, you need to change the way you think and act, as well as change your lifestyle to one that allows you to restore a normal zest for life.
You need to reprogram your mind and your body.
If you are depressed, you can have a choice about how you go forward.
You can either sit around and be self-indulgent, expect others to fix the problem for you or make up your mind to do everything you can to change yourself and your situation to wake up your brain’s healing systems to help you feel happy in life again.
Are you aware that hypnotherapy can help you feel motivated to get on with your life again fast?
Remember depression is a signal that what is happening and what you are doing is not right for you and that you need to change things.
Everyone comes to depression for different reasons and experiences different conflicts inside their mind that need to be explored and resolved
That signal is part of your defence system that causes you to withdraw from fear of danger and discomfort. You must listen to the signal that tells you that you need to change things and if you do not, that signal will keep on sounding until things change.
