When you have put a lot of effort into changing things for the better but you have got no where. Popular issues that can lead to a feeling of depression are :-

  • I struggle with self acceptance
  • I carry a lot of shame, anger, guilt

Depression can arrive for many reasons and sometimes can be the accumulation of a number of events that have gone wrong.

Hypnosis in the Treatment of Depression

There are several compelling arguments for the use of hypnosis in the treatment of depression. For example, the editor of this special issue, Michael Yapko, has proposed that hypnosis has relevance to the treatment of depression because hypnosis can help build positive expectancy regarding treatment, address numerous depressive symptoms (including insomnia and rumination), and modify patterns of self-organization (such as cognitive, response, attentional, and perceptual styles) that contribute to depressed thinking and mood ()


Hypnosis is particularly effective in helping reduce anxiety (a major feature of depression) and bringing a state of calmness and relaxation. When we feel more relaxed when tend to be more motivated to do things. Insomnia can be a feature of depression and again hypnosis can help people through the use of self-hypnosis to drift into sleep more easily. A better night’s sleep leads to a better sense of well-being.
