You smile once or twice and they think you are ok again, but it sits in the background.
They ask you if you are ok? But depression wants you to push loved ones away, that 'stuck' feeling that presses you down means there is no progress, no feeling of growth.
Depression can appear at any time in life and it can feel like a downward spiral so hard to get out of.
It doesn't have to win, it can be alleviated, there is hope.
Depression is Anxieties older brother, it sits in the sorrowful past whilst Anxiety worries constantly about the future.
Can you imagine being able to smile properly again?
To laugh and make others laugh?
To once again enjoy those happy chemicals of Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin and Endorphin, that your body has lacked for so long that your connection with life itself becomes lost?
Depression is a state of mind that affects physical and chemical states, and it can be altered!
In my hypnotherapy career, I have been privileged enough to help people out of this dark place and guide them towards the light. I build a very safe, confidential, comfortable relationship with my clients so that they may feel able to share how it feels to deal with this problem day to day, and then together we go about the job of moving forward in life, feeling lighter and embracing a new future.
