Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Depression in Milton Keynes
What is depression
Depression is a common psychological disorder and almost anyone can be affected at some point during their life; research suggests that approximately 1 in 4 people will suffer from depression to some extent during their lifetime. It is important to recognise that there is a vast difference between feeling down one day (e.g. being in a low mood) and having a depressive disorder. If these depressive feelings don’t go away quickly, or they start affecting your everyday life, it may be time to seek professional help.
How depression may affect you
Living with depression can affect the way you eat, sleep, work and the way you feel about yourself and your life. This may lead you to lose confidence in yourself or to suffer from low-self-esteem (e.g. you do not feel worthy or you lose your belief in yourself). Sometimes people may tell you to ‘pull yourself together’ or ‘snap out of it’, but no matter how much you may want to, you usually can’t “just get over it” and simply feel better. This is not a sign of weakness as some people may believe, but part of the psychological disorder. You may not understand why you are feeling despair or hopelessness and therefore can be too embarrassed to seek help, believing the feelings will disappear sooner or later. However, this usually means you suffer longer than necessary, as help is available for those suffering from depression. It affects people in different ways and can cause a variety of physical and psychological symptoms:
Symptoms of depression may include:
- Feeling constantly pessimistic
- Crying a lot
- Feeling constantly sad, anxious or empty
- Lack of energy
- Restlessness and irritability
- Feeling worthless, helpless or guilty
- Loss of interest in hobbies or activities
- Difficulty concentrating and making decisions
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Changes in appetite
- Feeling empty, more dead than alive
- Thoughts of death or suicide (please call the Samaritans on Freephone 08457 90 90 90)
- Persistent physical symptoms, such as headaches and digestive disorders
Treatment for depression
Counselling and Cognitive Hypnotherapy may be extremely effective ways of treating depression if cases are mild to moderate. Drug therapy is also available for more severe situations, and there are a variety of antidepressant medications that are available. Many sufferers find that a combination of treatments is most effective; the medication gives the sufferer fast relief from the symptoms of depression and the Cognitive Hypnotherapy teaches you how to deal with the problems you have.
