Hypnosis/Can it help depression/anxiety?
Hi :) I have heard of hypnosis and the likes. I think there is one I can go to in my town, but I was wondering, how can it help my depression and anxiety?
I know when it all started, I THINK I know how it all happened, but I don't know exactly what triggered my downfall. I am still very depressed, major, anxiety, OCD.
Honestly, I feel trapped in my depression, feel like there is no support or help.
Hello Kelly -
Of course I can't give you suggestions about medical treatments for your depression - especially with so little information.
Are you under a doctor's care and have you asked him/her about this?
I can tell you that hypnotherapy with a competent practitioner has been used (and is often used) for the treatment of both anxiety and depression.
I will caution you that some hypnotherapists are better trained than others and some are more effective than others, so it'd be nice if you could get a reference or referral ... Many hypnotherapists will have a free consultation with you either by phone or in person before you go see them, and that also might help you decide.
I'm so sorry I took long to reply. I was traveling outside the country for the past month teaching a course and couldn't keep up with my email. Apologies.
