Debbie's Hypnotherapy Blogs
Depression is a mood disorder and it’s much more common than you’d think. In fact MIND, ed the mental health charity, page believes that around one in four people in the UK will suffer depression every year. Despite this, it’s much misunderstood, is often seen signal of personal weakness, and not everyone who experiences it recognises what they’re going through.
If you are considering using hypnotherapy to resolve some problem in your life, you have probably done some reading around on the subject. (Good for you - you absolutely should!)
You have probably heard that hypnosis is very effective; maybe even that it can be a 'miracle cure'. It may be quite a big investment for you in terms of time, money and effort. So it might seem reasonable to ask if I can offer a guarantee to solve whatever problem you are dealing with.
I'm sure you have heard of Mesmerism, or feeling mesmerised, but you may not know that this comes from Franz Anton Mesmer (1754-1815). He was interested in magnetism, having watched a demonstration of ‘magnetic cures’ and exorcisms by a priest called Father Maximillian Hell in 1774.
Are you a glass half full or a glass half empty type of thinker? To be fair, all of us think negatively from time to time. Something happens and it flits through our minds that the results of it will be bad, or uncomfortable, even though we're aware there is no particular reason that things won’t turn out well. The problem with negative thinking is that it can take over. From being an occasional, fleeting thought it can become overwhelming, and feel as if it’s out of your control.
What would make you happier? A new job? More money? Improved health? Nicer holidays? Or something else?
In fact, there research shows us that this sort of detail has surprisingly little to do with how happy we believe we are.
Often (and quite understandably) people ask me; “Does hypnotherapy work?” For some it’s enough that they feel better, sometimes after just one session. Often they are amazed at the change. But I can hear others saying 'Well, she would say that, wouldn't she?'
So don’t just take my word for it. The good news is that there is a lot out there and new evidence coming out all the time.
