Depression 'can be treated with hypnotherapy'

People suffering with depression may want to consider the advantages of hypnotherapy treatment.

Caroline Carr, hypnotherapist, life coach and founder of mypartnerisdepressed.com, said that the illness is caused by many factors and people may need to try a range of medications and methods before finding the most suitable one for them.

"I have found that hypnotherapy can be very helpful in the treatment of some depression, depending on the cause of depression," she said.

Ms Carr explained that biological, physical and chemical triggers can provoke the onset of the condition and sometimes anti-depressant drugs are not always the best long-term solution.

Hypnosis can be particularly effective in dealing with issues created by the subconscious, the expert added.

According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, most people with depression experience a number of symptoms.

These include, but are not limited to, loss of appetite, suicidal thoughts, increased irritability and poorer decision making skills.
