Not being able to experience joy and pleasure is also known as anhedonia.  Hypnotherapy Newcastle opens the possibility of helping you move back towards feeling OK and taking the next steps to have a more colourful life.

Major depression is likely to affect approximately 15% of people in the course of their life.

Hypnotherapy Newcastle Depression

Symptoms Of Depression

  • Feelings of guilt
  • Loss of libido
  • Feelings of remorse
  • Sad thoughts and ideation
  • Lack of energy

Some 50% of depressive symptoms without any recognisable loss experienced in life can be attributed to poorly functioning thyroid gland which can be treated with medication and your doctor should be able to make this diagnosis.

Ruling out thyroid gland problems, psychologically ( and biologically ) based depression is a response to loss; loss of a loved one, loss of status and loss of material possession. The good news, even in the face of one of the most horrendous psychological diseases is that most people will recover quite fully in about six months.

Neuro Architecture Of Depression

There are several components that are creating the neuro biology of depression. The anterior cingulate gyrus in the frontal lobe can be thought to be ‘whispering’ sad thoughts to the rest of the brain especially the limbic system. The limbic system creates the negative feelings of sadness and guilt that are associated with depression.

Hypnotherapy Newcastle may be able to help you shift through the stages of depression faster and into recovering you deepest sense of self and feeling pleasure again.

It is thought that at least three neuro transmitters are related to depression and specifically to specific aspects of depression.

Serotonin is thought to have affects relating to the feelings of sadness and remorse being linked to thinking sad and guilt laden thoughts. Noradrelanin is thought to have affects relating to lack of energy and Dopamine is thought to have affects relating to the lack of experiencing pleasure.

Newcastle Hypnotherapy Erectile Dysfunction – Nigel Hetherington

Hypnotherapy in Newcastle for men’s help with sexual impotence. Men’s erectile problems are common though they aren’t usually discussed openly.

The most common cause of men’s erectile dysfunction is excess stress. Stress accounts for around 50% of male impotence. When you have affective methods to manage stress you are far more likely to be able to gain and maintain an erection. It can be hard to seek professional help.

Hypnotherapy Newcastle with Nigel Hetherington offers a discrete service using hypnosis and NLP to help you both relax and change your response to stress. Newcastle hypnotherapy can help alleviate male impotence and erectile dysfunction.

When we are relaxed and calm there is much more, if not all, parasympathetic nervous system activation. The parasympathetic system is what is activated after a meal, during sleep, relaxing or when meditating. When people are stressed it is sympathetic nervous system that is activate.

For a man to gain and maintain an erection, the parasympathetic nervous system must be activated.  This won’t happen if you are worried, nervous or hyper anxious about your sexual performance.

Impotence problems can naturally compound because being impotent is stressing in and of itself. It can be embarrassing as well as feeling guilt and shame.

How Hypnotherapy Newcastle Can Help

Being able to discuss your problem is usually a big relief and being able to have straight talk with a professional can actually ease a burden. Undiscussed problems of this nature can be quite inflationary in terms of anxtious apprehension so being able to talk about it can begin a change process.

There are two essential steps in dealing with what is know as psychogenic ( stress related ) impotency and to have some ideas and indications as to whether excess stress is the culprit.

Firstly using hypnosis to strengthen your responses to stress we are attempting to make you more robust to non-sexually related stressors. This can mean having better outlets for work and relationship stresses and feeling more in control of your own life.

Secondly hypnotherapy in Newcastle is used to de-couple previous problematic memories and feelings guilt and anxiety that is directly sexually related. Using hypnosis and NLP to create positive ideas and body responses that can reorganise and  straighten out your thoughts so you can relax into the mood you really want to achieve.

Identifying Stress Related Impotence

You will most likely have a very accurate idea of the stress levels in your life – if you are honest with yourself. You will know whether erection problems occur only when you are with a partner or on your own or both.

Additionally you can use Holmes and Rahe’s scale of major Life Events to explore your own ‘subjective’ stress scale day to day measures. When you believe that stress or some psychological basis is causing impotence then hypnotherapy may well be a real solution for you.

When adults enter the later, deeper stages of sleep, REM sleep they get erections. Getting erections in sleep very much suggests stress related erection problems when you are awake. So…

You can do one more personal experiment to see if your impotence has a psychogenic or stress related basis. Take a thin strip of paper or a long cigarette paper using just the adhesive part and fit this to the penis before sleeping.

This should be fitted to wrap around the girth and be loosely affixed. The fixing could be a sliver of sellotape or a dab of Pritstick glue or the natural adhesive gum on a cigarette paper.

The idea is, the ring of paper you have fitted around the girth ( think of a napkin holder ) will open or break if you experience an erection during sleep.  Check if the lightly attached paper has broken during your sleep.
