The only thing more exhausting than being depressed is pretending that you’re not.” Anonymous, Twitter

Sometimes you do a really great job of hiding your emotions and no-one has an inkling about how you  really feel . But if they are really listening and looking right at you – they might genuinely see how you feel inside underneath that mask. They will see the anger and misery  in your eyes or  realise that you just don’t feel pleasure anymore.

 Does anyone know that you don’t sleep well anymore? Have you felt able to share your distress with anyone? Perhaps you have tried counselling and although it  helped, you are looking for something else.

With hypnotherapy, the symptoms of depression can  improve substantially. Just imagine how much better you would feel if you were sleeping properly, had more energy, enthusiasm  and were thinking more positively.

Living with  mental health problems can be a real struggle and isolating too. People can  feel  overwhelmed and on the edge but it is possible to take back control  of your mindset and find pleasure and contentment again.

How do  I start hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy for depression starts with an initial, one hour consultation. The consultation is  completely FREE and there is no obligation to book further sessions if it’s not right for you. At the initial consultation we gather brief information  (name, age, address etc.) and  we explain how and why the therapy works.

Further sessions are one  hour long and usually take place once a week. Most customers  have  around 8-12 sessions, although this can vary. After a period of time you may feel that you want  to space the appointments out further and we can agree what is best for you.
