Can Hypnotherapy Help With Depression?

Will Hypnotherapy Help Alleviate My Depression and Help Lift My Mood?

We can all experience low mood from time to time and this is just simply part of life. However, depression can last for weeks or even months and it is this more constant state of feeling low that doctors describe as depression. The symptoms can be numerous, although of the people I have helped within my practice here at York Hypnotherapy Clinic, there is a common theme of feeling hopeless and a lack of self-worth, self-confidence and/or self-belief.

Of the symptoms, it effects men and women in different ways, although there are many similarities including sleep issues, cognitive ability, aches, pains, and often these can be coupled with digestive issues and fatigue.

In both Males and Females there can be thoughts of suicide, with men being more likely to commit suicide, the statistics show that men account for 75% of the deaths that occur from suicide.

It is important that you understand that I personally have had my own personal challenges with low mood and suicidal thoughts, along with a great deal of experience on a professional level. Through my knowledges, skills and expertise, I’ve been able to transform my life and the lives of those I’ve helped.

On a personal level, I have found a way to manage my mood better, this coupled with resolving the way I felt about significant emotional events has been pivotal in ensuring that I am more resilient and robust than I have been at any other time in my life.

"Could hypnotherapy and the work I do with eye movement therapy be the answer?."

I would like to help you and what I have learned over the years, is I believe valuable to share.

As with any subject matter, there can be any number of reasons why we think and feel the way that we do. Of those I have worked with and helped, I find that unresolved trauma, PTSD and/or significant emotional events are the starting point for the most successful therapeutic to begin.

When looking at the major causes of depression, high on the list will be the breakdown of relationships, past physical abuse, and other personal problems. I have a range of skills at my disposal including Clinical Hypnotherapy, Eye Movement Therapy, Neuro-linguistic programming.

Where depression is concerned, using Eye Movement Therapy to resolve the past is key. Rather than letting past events define us, it is better that we use them to shape us and I’m skilled in helping your mind see things from a more positive perspective.

My skills set, knowledge and experience are unique, and I have countless successes to share along with people prepared to share how I made a difference in their lives.

The vast majority of my work is done face to face, however, I help people all over the World by providing Hypnotherapy online, and we are able to work remotely via a webcam on Zoom.

Why choose me to help?

Around 1% of UK Hypnotherapists complete an advanced hypnotherapy qualification and whilst I am unsure of the actual numbers within each professional body, and even less so overseas, I know that this is the case with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and within my membership of the General Hypnotherapy Register. I have made the effort and investment required to complete this next phase of my professional development and can call myself an Advanced Practitioner.

In studying for my Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (NQF 6), I was fortunate enough to study with ex-Sheffield Hallam University lecturer Doctor Paul Peace, Philosophy (PHD), Psychology, and Karen Bartle who holds a master’s degree in Health/Medical Psychology.

Throughout my career as a Hypnotherapist, I have been fortunate to study with people whom I consider to be some of the best in the business and in addition to studying with Karen and Paul, I trained with Matthew Ferguson and he has worked with Olympic athletes, Doctors and Psychiatrists to name but a few professions and he has over 25 years’ experience of Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy, and he also shared some fantastic knowledge and expertise with me.

I was also, fortunate enough to study with Nick Davies who created the BLAST Technique®

The studying I completed with Nick, sees me able to resolve negative memories through eye movement, and this is one of the most valuable skills I possess. I have studied numerous times with him and there are less than 50 Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner® in the world (3/2/21), of which I am one.

In short, I have an Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, I am a Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic programming, a skilled eye movement therapist, a qualified Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner®, as well as also being a Motivation Therapist and Coach. I have helped thousands of people and I am confident that my help will positively make a difference, however, rather take my word for this, I would encourage you to read the reviews left by others, you can do this by clicking the link below.


So, if you are looking for a skilled hypnotherapist, with a wealth of experience in helping people to excel in their chosen discipline or field, then I recommend you get in touch, knowing that I can help wherever in the world you might be.
