Depression can affect any person at any stage of life. Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, male or female, depression can develop in certain situations. Once depression develops, the symptoms can drastically change a person’s life, daily routines and behaviour. Often these changes worsen and ultimately prolong the depression.
Every person experiences depression differently but often a person might suffer from physical symptoms such as headaches, digestive problems, exhaustion and fatigue or change of appetite or weight. Emotional symptoms also vary in intensity but often include loss of confidence, motivation and self-belief. Both physical and emotional symptoms can prevent the depressed person from getting better.
A combination of BWRT®, Hypnosis and CBT can be very effective in treating this condition.

Medication does not address the negative perceptions and thinking that contribute to depression and depressed feelings. To break free from the vicious cycle of depression it helps to learn what unhelpful thinking patterns lead to depressing thoughts and subsequent feelings.
Unfortunately, certain things that you do, in an attempt to alleviate your feelings of depression, may actually be making your symptoms worse. When people are depressed, they often make the mistake of doing what their mood dictates, withdrawing from day to day activities, being less socially and physically active. Unfortunately, this behaviour only serves to strengthen the depressed feelings.
BWRT®, Hypnosis and CBT can teach practical techniques on how to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioural skills in combating depression.
BWRT®, Hypnosis and CBT can also help a person suffering from depression to work through the root cause of their depression, helping them to understand why they feel a certain way, what their triggers are for depression, and what they can do to stay healthy.
Some people can end up in a vicious cycle of depression. As illustrated, low energy levels, lack of motivation and low mood result in not wanting to interact socially with friends or family. Often a depressed person cuts back on their activities, neglecting their daily tasks, responsibilities and they will often leave the decision making to others. Having entered into this vicious cycle, the depressed person experiences greater isolation and loss of self-confidence. This leads to increased guilt, hopelessness and a feeling of being worthless.
Those with depression often feel like those around them think they can turn on and off their condition like a switch. If it was as easy as all of a sudden letting everything go and moving on, depression wouldn’t be such a complex and difficult illness to treat.
