Depression can leave you feeling like you’re stuck under a dark cloud, a low mood which often lasts a long time and affects your day to day life.

Hypnotherapy for Depression in Surrey, Farnham & Bagshot
Depression encourages you to become focused on negative thoughts and forecast the worst-case scenarios, often leaving you feeling hopeless and unable to see a way out. Mild depression doesn’t stop you leading a normal life but makes everything an effort and you lack sense of purpose. More severe depression can be life threatening because it can make you feel like giving up completely.
You can be left feeling unable to cope with negative thoughts causing you to put life on hold and withdraw from the outside world. It takes away your confidence and ability to feel in control making rational decisions instead becoming focused on negative thoughts and forecasting the worst case scenarios, often leaving you feeling hopeless and unable to see a way out.
The Role Of Serotonin
Sometimes called the happy chemical, because it contributes to our wellbeing, a constant flow of serotonin, a natural chemical produced in the brain, helps us feel more positive and act positively. It means we’re able to cope with day to day life. Every thought and emotion we experience changes our brain chemistry and so the level of feel-good serotonin fluctuates constantly. When we feel depressed, serotonin is low, so it’s no surprise that we see life from the worst possible perspective.
Hypnotherapy sessions explore the ways you engage with life and how doing things differently in day to day life, such as the way we reflect, interact and take action has on serotonin levels and helps you take small steps forward to make beneficial changes which help boost these levels naturally.
Help to overcome depression
How can solution focused hypnotherapy help you overcome your Depression and feel better?
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to break free from the negative cycle of depression, giving you tools and techniques, you can use to feel better. Hypnotherapy helps boost your brain chemistry naturally to help you move forward and more optimistic.
We’ll work together at a pace that is right for you using a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis techniques. We avoid problem talk, instead, we focus on how you want things to be, rather than dwelling on negative past problems. I’ll also explain very simply how our brains create depression and how this influences your behaviours and feelings which supports you in taking small steps to think differently.
Sessions are consolidated with hypnosis which helps bring about therapeutic change at a subconscious level using guided relaxation techniques allowing your mind to become calmer, so you can focus on moving forwards in life, giving you the support to build new helpful patterns of behaviour so you can feel more positive and hopeful about the future.

What our clients say…
I came to Andrew feeling really overwhelmed in life. Through his sessions, I found an amazing sense of calm and understanding of why I was feeling that way. Andrew is great at explaining the scientific side of why we feel anxious, which has helped me to cope a lot better with tough or stressful situations. Would totally recommend to anyone who needs a bit of extra help with anxiety or low self-esteem.
Started seeing Andrew as I had crippling anxiety to the point I was afraid of everything in life, I couldn’t even face doing a weekly shop and my son told me I was always crying and unhappy. Andrew was kind and listened to my concerns, the talking and hypnotherapy was relaxing, you can hear everything around you but helps you understand why you have anxiety and how to beat it. I am now a happier more confident person more my old self. I am so grateful to Andrew for his help and would recommend his help to everyone.
Andrew has really helped me to get my anxiety under control in a few short weeks and given me the tool kit to deal with all that life throws at me!! I now better understand how the brain works, and why certain things make me feel or react the way I do. Having this better understanding really helped with changing my perspective and outlook on life to a positive one!! I would 100% recommend!!
I went to Andrew full of anxiety and stress When my sessions were finished I felt like new person. Cannot recommend him enough. I was doubtful at first that this treatment was for me but he was so easy to talk to and put me at ease. So glad I went to him!
Before I met Andrew, I was feeling increasingly anxious, wasn’t sleeping and was having panic attacks in the middle of the night. I felt tired during the day and I’d lost all of my confidence and self-esteem. Working with Andrew was really helpful and has helped me overcome my anxiety and I’ve been able to start socialising and getting out of the house again.
Having tried conventional therapies and not really seen any results, I decided to try something different. I am so glad I did. Finally, I feel like someone has helped me out of the funk I was in. By forcing me to look at the positives which was surprisingly and sadly very difficult to start with I soon opened into someone who barely saw the negatives in life. I’d highly recommend Andrew to anyone thinking About trying hypnotherapy.
