Hypnosis for Depression | Holistic Depression Treatment | Edinburgh
Of all holistic cures for depression hypnotherapy is one of the most effective treatments when coupled with mindfulness training, Emotional Freedom Technique, Neuro Linguistic Programming and a specific Mind-Body daily mental and physical program.
Whereas some think of depression as an incurable disease I see it as a condition caused by the body becoming addicted to chemicals as a result of neurological processes over which you can take control. As such depression can be dealt with effectively by mental methods together with the adoption of a physical program that involves creating a positive physiology.
Hypnotherapy and Depression
Hypnotherapy for depression helps you change the way you think and act in the same situation which in turn affect the kind of chemicals your brain produces. This is done by using a variety of mental and physical techniques that help you reverse the pervasive and repetitive negative style of thinking that coupled with painful life events causes depression in the first place.
By creating alternative neural pathways, new positive learned behaviors replace the old negative ones thereby affecting your emotions positively. These eventually feed back into the system and reinforce the new neural pathways making the change permanent.
By replacing the neuro-chemicals released at a cellular level from those associated with negative emotions (such as cortisol and adrenalin) to serotonin and endorphins we can begin to reverse cellular addiction.
This is done by creating a concrete action plan that involves mental training using hypnosis for depression, NLP, EFT, mindfulness and relaxation as well as exercise, positive postures, dance music and art therapy, deep breathing and a willingness to learn how to better engage in enjoyable social exchanges.
Holistic Depression Treatment
Hypnotherapy is an effective holistic treatment of depression that does not involve drugs. This does not mean that if you are on medication your should stop it or that you would not benefit from it while taking medication for depression. Like other holistic health treatments hypnotherapy is complementary to traditional medicine and fully compatible with it.
As part of your holistic depression treatment you will be involved in the creation of a personalized action plan that will involve setting goals, listening to hypnotherapy CDs, and actively engaging in a daily mental and physical program designed to reinforce your confidence and motivation as well as clearing up any emotional trauma that might have triggered the depression in the first place.
