Depression is a common struggle for many in Hong Kong. Although depression is especially prevalent among university students, it can affect anyone of any age and in any walk of life. You may be at a higher risk of depression if you have a family history of depression, certain genetic factors, a history of trauma, chronic pain, or anxiety. If you are struggling with depression, hypnosis therapy for depression can bring you the relief you need.  

What is Depression? 

Everyone feels sad from time to time. Sadness is a normal human response to disappointment, loss, or difficulty. However, for most of us, sadness resolves in time. We are able to set temporary disappointments aside in time and move on to happier things. Depression is different. Depression is an ongoing mental condition that can be associated with a variety of symptoms that can affect your ability to function normally. In other words, depression can be debilitating and is often associated with significant dysfunction.  

Symptoms tend to last longer than two weeks and may include:  

  • A depressed mood 
  • Loss of energy 
  • Lost interest or pleasure in previously enjoyable activities 
  • Insomnia or change in sleep habits 
  • Poor appetite 
  • Agitation 
  • Feelings of worthlessness 
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Suicidal thoughts 

Hypnosis to treat depression can help you develop new coping skills as you navigate your way through depression. 

Researchers have found that using hypnosis for depression can help people manage their symptoms more effectively and feel more positive about their treatments. Using hypnosis for anxiety and depression can also help people modify certain cognitive patterns and mindsets that contribute to depressed thinking.

How Hypnosis Therapy for Depression Helps

While depression is associated with many factors, the subconscious mind can play a major role in both its onset and recovery. You are unconscious of much of your brain’s normal day-to-day activity as you go about your normal routine. The unconscious or subconscious mind acts as a sort of autopilot, helping you navigate your day and regulating your emotions and behavior. Under ordinary circumstances, you are unaware of its actions and role, but using hypnosis to treat depression gives you the ability to access it and even moderate its functions.  

During hypnosis for depression, you can access the subconscious mind. The deep relaxation and intense focus of hypnosis enable you to bypass the conscious mind and reach deep inside the unconscious to address unresolved issues, such as anger, hurt, resentment, and trauma, reside. Rather than numbing or covering up these feelings, using hypnosis to treat depression offers you the tools you need to address and release them. You can silence the repetitive thoughts, stop the compulsive behavior, and start loving your life again. When you use hypnosis for anxiety and depression, you can effectively end self-sabotage and restore a healthier mindset to correct unhelpful behavior patterns.
