Depression Hypnotherapy Newcastle – Nigel Hetherington

Depression can be split into two basic kinds of classification, these being reactive depression and unipolar or Clinical depression. Newcastle hypnotherapy with Nigel Hetherington can help you come to terms and move forwards in life from both reactive and clinical depression.

When people have depression many will make a return to a normal life and usual temperament on their own. Other times sufferers of depression require help in moving forwards. Help can come in various forms like medication, active exercise or talk therapies such as Newcastle hypnotherapy or CBT.

Dr. Lewis Baxter and Dr. Arthur Brody from U.C.L.A have independently shown that patients overall recovery, neurochemistry and reduction of high frontal cortex activity undergo similar changes irrespective of whether the treatment is antidepressant drugs or talk therapy such as CBT or Newcastle hypnosis.

As human beings we are emotionally wired to form attachments and bonds. Reactive depression occurs when we experience some form of loss. Loss can be the loss of a loved one when a relationship ends or a person we deeply care about dies. Loss can also be the loss of objects, like a house or car or other valued possession. We can also experience reactive depression when we feel a loss of a concept, idea or trust.

Clinical ( unipolar ) depression is regarded as a neurological disorder characterised by an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain and often heightened prefrontal cortex activity. Similar mechanisms seem to underlie both types of depression so treatments such as exercise and hypnotherapy Newcastle can be particularly effective ways to end the tyranny of depression in the sufferer.

In reactive depression people often transition through the loss bereavement or grief cycle defined by Kubler Ross where depression is the forth stage in the sequence. Coming out of depression people will have a general return to their general temperament start living and laughing again. When an individual does not exit the fourth stage of active depression an individual may transition into clinical depression.

Sufferers of clinical depression have prolonged and intense mood disorders, are prone to self loathing and even suicidal thoughts. Often described as a blackness of experience and disconnection from others and life. Physical pain can also be part of this dark abyss.

Many people recover and come out of depression themselves. For others coming out from depression requires professional assistance. There are many options for you to explore to assist you in your recovery from depression. Talk therapies such as Hypnotherapy, psychotherapy or CBT has been shown to be at least as effective as antidepressant drugs.
