However sensible the instinct started out being, staying deep in our metaphorical cave can become self-defeating. The more we “shut down”, the less receptive we are to the threat having reduced or vanished altogether. Being stuck in this state often results in a continuation of, or a worsening of, the depression.
If you feel like that resonates with you in some way, and you’re at a point where you would like to emerge from your cave but are fearful of doing that, here’s how hypnotherapy with me will help.
First of all, using something called solution-focused techniques, we will co-create difference simply by exploring what the world around you would be like if things were different. Then, with the use of hypnosis, you’d be able to experience that different version of yourself and, at a neurological level, change will have begun. Over however many sessions you feel is needed, we will continue that process so that the positive change you want will become more established.
TREATING TRAUMA & DEPRESSION
If you feel that a traumatic event in your life was the reason for bringing about your depression please visit my page covering Trauma. Processing that trauma so that it becomes a distant memory will allow you to feel that it’s now safe to emerge from your cave and engage in life again.
