Effective and timely help for depression using hypnotherapy and IEMT in Hampshire

I have helped people with their depression using a combination of Integral Eye Movement Therapy and Hypnotherapy.

I use those words carefully because it’s one word that covers so many issues and wraps them in a convenient blanket that can be dealt with. Depression is a medical term and has to be diagnosed by a qualified doctor.

My experience is that depression is not just one set of symptoms or feelings or one of anything. Depression is so different for everybody who suffers from it. So when I say that I have helped people with their depression you should take that literally, it’s unique to them.

In terms of lasting impact on life, depression is one of those things that can hang around for years or it can be gone relatively quickly. I have helped people whose symptoms were physical as in a partial loss of voice, I have helped others who had that overwhelming urge to curl up in a ball and hide away from the world.

I see depression as the effect on your body, mood and feelings created by other events that are going on or have gone on in your life. It’s supported by thoughts and habits that keep you pinned down.

At the end of the day the only person who can fix it is you. If you have started to look for help that sounds right to you then I see that as your first step to recovery.

There’s something really important that you might not realise. What you perceive as what is happening and what the rest of the world perceives as what is happening may not be the same thing. The view of a hole is different depending on whether you’re at the top looking down or at the bottom looking up.

How Can I Help?

Firstly you are probably being treated by your doctor for this. We will need the doctor’s written permission for me to work with you. It sounds awkward but the doctor will generally agree.

I can help you work through and identify the problems that you perceive.

I can help you deal with the things that you identify as problems. I use Eye Movement therapy alongside Hypnotherapy to help with those problems.

Usually this will help you start to get a more rational relationship with the world and you will start to heal yourself.
Generally this will be between 4 and 6 sessions with me.

At some point you will start to feel a bit more in control of yourself. But in all honesty you won’t trust the improvement, you have had false starts to recovery before. It will take a while until you accept that it’s working. After that you will probably take 3 to 6 months to get your life back together, that’s based on my experience with people who I have helped.

It’s important to note that the work I do with you will help but we have no way to measure how much help your medication is providing, this has to be regulated and monitored by your doctor.
