Depression is a very common psychological disorder in today’s society and can strike at anytime. Research suggests that one in six of us will suffer from depression at sometime in our lives. When we are depressed we may have a feeling of sadness that can last a long time which can result in a loss of motivation, a feeling of worthlessness and wanting to hide. It can cause disruption in our sleep pattern, loss of appetite and a general lack of interest in life.
Other symptoms include:

Hypnotherapy can help with turning this negative cycle around by encouraging you to concentrate on gaining control of your thought process and by setting goals that will lead to greater enjoyment of life.

There are all sorts of fears and phobias including spiders, heights, dentists, hospitals, becoming ill, going outside, feeling trapped and injections.
We can have a fear or phobia of anything which can hold us back from really enjoying our lives. They are generally caused by an association of a traumatic or upsetting event in early life.
Your sub-conscious has decided that the best way to keep you safe is to cause you to panic and stop you from doing something that might be linked to a previous upsetting event – generally it associates it to an object.
Hypnotherapy can help you overcome this by taking the emotion out of the past experience enabling you disassociate it from the fear or phobia. It is a quick and effective tool that can only take 4/5 sessions.
