Depression is a common medical illness.
According to the world health organization depression effects at least 264 million people of all ages worldwide.
What is depression?
Depression is more than feeling ‘down’ or ‘unhappy’ for a few days. This is completely normal for most people.
However, when you find that are feeling persistently sad for weeks and months, this is when you need to seek help as you may be suffering with Clinical Depression. If left untreated, depression can negatively impact your life and relationships.
It can be very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you can ‘pull yourself together’. This takes a lot of motivation and energy which when feeling depressed, we don’t have.
Depression is a recognised illness that requires treatment and support with the help of professionals. With help, the majority of people make a full recovery.
Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy is just one of the treatments that can be used to treat depression with great results.
