  • Depression is so sad. It is horrible that anyone goes through depression at all. It is too bad that all depression cannot be combatted with just a big huge hug.

    There is much evidence into the side effects of anti-depressants, some of which are alarming. Hypnotherapy on the other hand, generally works or it doesn’t. I am unaware of side effects which are as deleterious as those of allopathic medication.

    I would suggest this for those struggling with depression. The first time I listened to a hypnosis MP3 I was genuinely surprised by how relaxed I was and how much better I felt about myself, and that relaxation lasted throughout all evening. The more I listened to the audio the more positively I viewed myself and the world, which made me want to listen more so I could continue to improve myself.

    I’ve dealt with some horrible depression back in the day. I tried hypnosis, but I’m not sure it’s for me. Then again I only did it twice, so maybe I didn’t give it a big enough try.

    Depression is absolutely awful . I had a period of time full of bad things and it was horrible for me . Many of my friends advised me to visit a therapist but I did not want to and now I regret it because I know for sure that it would have been much easier for me to get over that situation . I advise anyone who has this kind of problem to visit a hypnotherapist for sure .

    Is it possible for hypnosis to have a placebo effect?

    Overcoming depression is not an easy thing. I tried hypnosis in the past actually and it did help me a bit for a brief time. I was happy for quite a while, but it is a treatment one should do more often than once. I plan to get back into it because I felt very good for weeks after I got hypnotized.

    I’ve had my share of depression as a teen and adult. I tried therapy, which did not work. I tried getting out into the world to talk to people, learn about people and just get away from life, but that too didn’t work. I got over it by just accepting it and realizing that we’re all depressed at some time, we just have to make the best of our lives and hope for the good. I may consider hypnotherapy at some point, because it does sound very appealing, but I don’t know if I really need it. I feel like I’m actually starting to get into a good place. I feel good! 🙂

    Juggling work and being a full time carer left me clinically depressed and on sick leave from work. My GP gave me anti depressants but I was told they would make me feel worse before I felt better. They did indeed make me feel worse and I felt suicidal. I needed to be strong and well to take care of my disabled son so I had a couple of hypnotherapy sessions. I immediately felt so much better and the ‘blackness’ lifted. I stopped the medication right away and although my life is far from perfect, the depression has never returned. I would certainly recommend hypnosis as a safe and effective form of therapy for depression.

    I could have use hypnosis for depression before. I have used therapy and other means of getting over my depression, but those things never helped. My wife was the reason my depression gone away, but I bet hypnosis could have helped me back in the day.

    Depression occurs in so many, but the level of depression is different in everyone. I will admit I have been depressed in my life, but so have everyone else out there. There is horrible depression that some people suffer from, so I would welcome some sort of hypnosis to see if it helps. I like to think that every little bit counts for something.

    As a teen I had suicidal thoughts, it was a very traumatic experience for me. I was bullied, hated life and feared people would hate me. I thankfully grew up and stopped believing I was a low-life person, or ugly or boring. I realized I had potential and I went and got to a place where I became content with life. Depression doesn’t run me anymore. I may not have had hypnotherapy or any other treatment, but I can respect ones choice of using hypnosis and I welcome it in fact.

    I’m a bit bipolar myself, and have been for quite some time now. I’ve always wondered what the best way of curbing my anger all the time. I can be a jerk one day and a saint the next, so maybe I shall give this a try one of these days.
