How life can send us into a depressive state!

Modern life can be hectic and turbulent our relationships, professional life, debt or many other things can send us into a depressive state. It is not uncommon most of us get over it in a short time. But some of us well it lingers for a long time which is not unusual. It can happen to anyone.

Current Statistics

  • Each year, almost 800,000 Australian adults will experience a depressive illness
  • Depression is the third most common cause of illness among women and the tenth most common cause among men
  • In 2001, Australian GPs reported depression as the fourth most common illness that they dealt with in their practices
  • Depression is the leading cause of disability in Australia

Antidepressant Medication

The use of drugs on depression is widespread. However the problem with this approach is the medication masks the symptoms of the problem and doesn't deal with the problem. So you are effectively reliant on the drugs, to get through life. While this may be good for the drug companies it is defiantly not ideal for you.

Hypnotherapy however actually addresses the root cause of the problem, and we don't ask you to relive past negative experiences. We do this with gentle relaxing meditative hypnotherapy treatment which will stop your depression.

Breaking the Cycle

How we live actually recreates the old pattern or reinforces depression in our lives. Because the way we feel will modify your behaviour, and then before you know it we are doing the same thing, which actually perpetuates the depression. Because of the way you feel, you don't have the energy or knowledge of how to deal with it. You just don't know how to get out of this state eventually you just give up, and you slowly sink lower and lower.
