Treating Depression with Hypnotherapy

Lecturer: Mike Bryant

Nearly a fifth of adults in the UK experience anxiety or depression according to the Office of National Statistics. For some, it is a brief episode which occurs only once in their life time. However, for many it is either chronic or recurrent, and can significantly impact their lives. It can become a very debilitating condition, and for a small percentage, it leads to suicide. While drug companies tout the effectiveness of their latest anti-depressant, anyone who has battled the disorder knows that medication does not always help. Not to mention, most medications are fraught with side effects. Psychotherapy can also be helpful, but again, does not work for everyone. Hypnosis has become recognized as a potentially effective treatment for many individuals with depression. Some recent studies have shown that it is more effective than cognitive-behavioural therapy, which is the most common therapy approach in treating clinical depression. While it does not work for everyone, it can definitely be worth considering if depression is seriously affecting your life and other types of treatment have not been helpful.
