Depression is described as a loss of the ability to feel and experience pleasure. 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.
Hypnotherapy for depression in Newcastle can help because depression is both a biological and psychological condition where the emotionally pleasurable texture of life is drained away and colours fade to grey. Major depression is likely to affect approximately 15% of people in the course of their life.
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.
