  • Depression

Hypnotherapy

A process in which you are guided into a deeply relaxed and receptive state. This state occurs as a result of the therapist talking to the client about relaxation and then about the client’s identified goal of treatment.

This level of relaxation is known as a trance state and it is something we all achieve in our day to day lives, daydreaming is an example of this. In hypnotherapy the trance state is deliberately encouraged to help the client’s subconscious mind receive beneficial suggestions to help them to achieve their desired goal.

Hypnotherapy is a gentle and natural therapy which has been proven effective in treating many psychological problems and is particularly noted for treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, (NICE cg26 2005).

Behavioural Activation

Behavioural Activation (BA) is a psychological treatment developed specifically for depression.

The idea behind this form of therapy is that when we become depressed or low in mood we start to isolate ourselves and change normal behaviours that we would engage with on a daily basis.

By the structured re-introduction of these activities it can improve your mood and self esteem.
