Looking for Hypnotherapy in Chester to help deal with your feelings of depression? Then look no further. I am a specialist mental health hypnotherapist having trained and worked within the NHS for over 20 years as a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN). Most hypnotherapists do not have any significant mental health training or understanding of underlying psychological problems. Nor do they understand drug treatments for depression which may have been prescribed for you by your Doctor. Why risk your mental well being with someone who has little or no experience of mental health? If you feel that you are suffering from depression then you need to be seen by a suitably qualified therapist, I use a combination of mindfulness based cognitive therapy, hypnotherapy and CBT all treatments which are proven to help alleviate the symptoms of depression.
CBT is the treatment of choice for NHS Doctors, Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Mental Health Nurses. Combine this scientifically proven evidenced based treatment with hypnosis and you will get a dynamic,fast and effective treatment without the NHS waiting times.
Everyone feels sad or a bit down from time to time. The struggles and setbacks of everyday life can be tough. Disappointments, stress, family, work, illness, loss and bereavement can cause us all to feel low or depressed at some point. However if strong feelings of despair and emptiness persist you may have clinical depression. Depression can make it difficult to function properly and enjoy life. Getting through each day can be a struggle.
Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from normal sadness in that it takes over your day life. Affecting your ability to relate and communicate with others, to work, study, eat, sleep, and enjoy yourself. Depressed people often feel very disconnected from those around them leaving them feeling isolated and alone. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness can be intense and unrelenting.
Signs and symptoms of depression include:
Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.
Loss of interest in daily activities.
Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain
Sleep changes. Insomnia, difficulty in getting off to sleep and/or waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping (also known as hypersomnia).
Anger or irritability. Feelings of agitation, restlessness. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves.Loss of energy.
Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained.
Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes.
Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports.
Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things.
Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.

Having worked for many years within an NHS mental health team you can know for your own peace of mind that you are getting far more with a session with me than your average hypnotherapist can offer.
