Feel more positive after the first session

At the London Hypnotherapy Centre, Lauretta Wilson our qualified depression hypnotherapist can help you by using Hypnotherapy for Depression. Depression is common with between 5 and 10% of the population suffering from depression in their lives. Almost anyone can be affected at some point during their life; it is important to recognise that there is a vast difference between feeling down one day and having a depression disorder. If you feel things are getting out of control, you have come to the right place to seek help.


Having depression
Living with depression can affect the way someone eats, sleeps, works and the way they feel about themselves in general. People around the depressed person will probably not understand the issue and as it cant be seen like a broken leg, depression is often misunderstood.
Many individuals may not understand why they are feeling the way they are and therefore can be too embarrassed to seek help, believing the feelings will disappear sooner or later. However this usually means they suffer longer than necessary, as help is available for those suffering from depression. Depression affects people in different ways and can cause a variety of physical and psychological symptoms:

Symptoms of depression

  • feeling constantly pessimistic
  • feeling constantly sad, anxious or empty
  • tiredness
  • difficulty concentrating and making decisions
  • changes in sleep patterns
  • changes in appetite
  • thoughts of death or suicide
  • persistent physical symptoms, such as headaches and digestive disorders
  • lack of energy
  • restlessness and irritability
  • feeling worthless, helpless or guilty
  • loss of interest in hobbies or activities

Types of Depression
There are different types of depression, including Major Depression, Dysthymic Disorder, Bipolar Disorder/Manic Depression and Postnatal Depression:

Causes of depression
Research suggests there are a combination of factors that influence the development of depression. These include:

Psychological Factors

  • Research suggests that individuals with certain characteristics (e.g. low confidence/self-esteem, a pessimistic outlook and negative thought patterns) are more prone to depression

Biological Factors

  • An imbalance of serotonin (a chemical in the brain) is thought to contribute to depression by altering an individual’s though process and emotions
  • Some research has suggested a genetic link to some types of depression. However depression also occurs in individuals who have no family history of the disorder

Hormonal Factors

  • Research has suggested a link between abnormal levels of Cortisol (a natural steroid hormone in the body) with depression

Traumatic Factors

  • Research has found that traumatic experiences such as divorce, the loss of a loved one, abuse and neglect may contribute to depression

Whatever the cause of depression, I can help you manage better and more quickly than you might imagine

Treatment for depression
Counselling and psychotherapy are extremely effective ways of treating depression if cases are mild to moderate. Drug therapy is also available for more severe situations and there are a variety of antidepressant medications that are available. Many sufferers find that a combination of treatments is most effective; the medication gives the sufferer fast relief from the symptoms and the counselling/psychotherapy teaches the individual how to deal with the problems they have.
I use a combination of SFBT counselling clinical hypnotherapy and NLP. I use these treatments in order to more you away from the negative thoughts that come with depression and into a more solution based and positive future.
