I believe Hypnosis is one of the best tools for treating Depression.
Before starting any in depth analysis,I help the client to FEEL better.
Depression creates negative hormones like cortisol.
Using visualisation,NLP,relaxation and suggestions.Hypnosis aims to help a client to create more positive hormones like serotonin &dopermine.It can act like as a antidepressant but without any side effects.
Even after two sessions a client's depression can be dramatically reduced.Everyone responds differently.
Of course eating and exercise plays a part.
I think counselling on its own falls short.But combining the both is way more powerful.
Today most therapist are trained in many areas.
I am trained in hypnotherapy,but also use some CBT,Counselling and EFT.
Hypnosis facilatates change.Its not mind control or stage hypnosis.Most therapy helps the client to help themselves.
