How does hypnotherapy work for depression?
Unlike what one might have come to expect from the entertainment sector hypnotherapy is psychotherapy as devised by Freud in 1887. Hypnotherapy simply relaxes you to the point of allowing you to understand issues clearly and to apply the solution as directly as possible, avoiding the laborious conscious learning process. In fact the hypnotic method was specifically developed for depression and anxiety. It is still the best way to a permanent cure as it addresses the causes of depression and anxiety, unlike all other medication which only addresses the chemical imbalances. Medication is not to be stopped or changed unless directly advised by your medical general practitioner. If prescribed they are necessary to provide enough emotional and mental stability to embark onto talking therapy and hypnosis.
