Are you experiencing depression or do you suffer from some or all of the symptoms of depression such as;
- trouble focusing or concentrating
- loss of interest in pleasurable or fun activities?
If so, you’re not alone. Major depression is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States. In fact, it’s estimated that over 16 million adults (6.7%) have had at least one major depressive episode in any given year. For some individuals, major depression can result in severe impairments that interfere with or limit one’s ability to carry out major life activities. In children and adolescents, depression may cause low self-esteem and guilt, poor concentration, and frequent absence from school. Depression may be difficult to spot in older adults.
Depression is very treatable. But, only about half of all Americans who are diagnosed with depression in a given year get treatment. Those who do seek treatment wait months or years to get help.
There are a number of causes of depression, each with a differing affect on our psyche.
However, if you suffer from depression, recent studies suggest hypnosis is a very effective way of alleviating the symptoms of depression. In an examination of data from a number of independent studies, these studies indicated the average participant receiving hypnosis showed more improvement than about 76% of control participants. Furthermore, other studies showed that after lengthy follow-up, the average participant treated with hypnosis showed more improvement than about 51% of control participants1.
