It seems like a lonely and unforgiving place to be. The depressed brain is starved of positive chemicals and this literally restricts your ability to think clearly and resourcefully.
Hypnotherapy is designed to manage the chemistry inside your brain to help you move towards an optimistic outlook.
In the depressed brain the primitive part of the mind is much more active. This part of the brain is normally very negative and worst case scenario focused. This makes us feel hopeless and unable to see a way out. Depression takes away our confidence and our ability to remain rational and positive about ourselves and our situations. We feel so low and need some help to get us boosted and back on track again.
Here at Tammy Foley Hypnotherapy in Pembrokeshire, we take things slowly, at your pace, and together find the way through the depression. You will learn to take control over your mind in a safe and supported way.
Your Hypnotherapy programme is tailored specifically for you to help you identify the ideal goal, and supports your progress in a way that is gentle and subtle.
Your action steps become apparent along the way that are achievable to your own suitability and pace. The actual sessions on the couch are designed to get your mind in a positive trance state, where you learn how to relax at a deep level.
During this trance-like relaxation, your brain is working at least 70 times as hard for you accessing your own internal resources and abilities within you that will be useful for you to move along the path of your purpose in a measured and disciplined way.
Your focus will improve as well as your confidence.
Trance is of course a natural state that our brain finds itself in approximately every 6-7 mins. The brain needs to be in this state often to be able to process events and experiences that are happening around us on every sensory level. The brain is like a sophisticated computer processor that responds and reacts through what is being coded into it, and then performs the operations and tasks that are necessary to function.
When we go into trance on the hypnotherapy couch, this experience is called REM and is very similar to a deep relaxation, where, your body feels comfortably heavy, but your mind feels comfortably light. you begin to notice a detachment from the everyday thoughts and it's almost like the drifty, floaty feeling you have just before you wake up in the morning, where you are not quite awake, but not quite asleep.
This state is hugely beneficial, as your brain is at it's optimum resting point, but also at it's optimum productivity. So, all suggestions that are positive and solution focused will be taken on board and given an action plan by you when you return to your daily tasks.
