Depression is often caused by a distressing or traumatic life event. The people and situations which are associated with the traumatic event in our lives are referred to as traumatic triggers. 

An example is someone reporting, “I never was depressed before  a loved one died.”  After a loved one dies on, the individual often has to deal with their personal effects including their home, or now has to take on their responsibilities. Any of these can become traumatic triggers. If the person or family member who has lost the loved one does not have time to fully grieve the loss, and to process unfinished feelings about the person, depression may set in almost immediately. Other traumatic triggers include losing a job, divorce, or financial reversals such as bankruptcy.


The following are some of the typical signs of depression that may take over slowly.

  • 1 – “Now, I can’t get out of bed in the morning. I just don’t have the same interest in things that I used to.”
  • 2 – “I have body pains and I’m worried that I may have (fibromyalgia, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, etc.).”
  • 3 – “I can’t seem to stop overeating and I gained 40 pounds.” Or “I have gone back to drinking, smoking cigarettes or pot, etc.”
  • 4 – “I’m having trouble sleeping at night and I’m exhausted.”
  • 5 – “I cry at the drop of a pin, but mostly I feel numb.”

Often these symptoms will be treated with drugs prescribed by a doctor. Anti-depressants, sleep medication. These treatment methods, of course, are aimed at symptom relief but don’t get down to treating the underlying cause of the depression.

Beat Depression Hypnotherapy

Medication treats symptoms. Hypnotherapy treats causes.


1. It helps you enter the subconscious:

First, we drop down from the conscious mind, which according to Sigmound Freud is only 10% of the mind into the subconscious mind. Now we are dealing the whole person, 100% of their mind rather than just treating the symptoms.

2. It helps you identify the “unfinished business”.

People often have what Dr. Fritz Perls called “unfinished business” with whoever or whatever has been lost, whether it is a  loved one, a job, or a home. These unresolved feelings,  resentments, regrets, blame, anger, guilt, jealousy, and fear are stored in the subconscious mind and must be released as soon after the triggering event as possible. Otherwise according to Freud they become deeply buried or repressed into the sub-conscious.  Beating Depression with Hypnotherapy works  because it removes the underlying basis of depression and releases the repressed feelings that otherwise continue to recycle as self- destructing thoughts and behaviours.

3. It helps you “finish” the “unfinished business” and release the repressed memories.

With hypnotherapy, we can go down to the deepest level of these traumatic experiences, memories and repressed emotions to release them from the mind . When this hypnotherapy process is complete, the client reports that their depression has lifted, that they have stopped the compulsive thoughts or behaviour, and that they are ready to live their lives again.

4. It helps you replace Depression with positivity.

With  hypnotherapy, we can replace the negative repetitive thoughts that often trouble people following a traumatic experience. Positive affirmations now work because the underlying emotional release has been accomplished.

5. It helps you use the power of hypnotic suggestion to create long-term change.

Hypnotherapy provides an effective and easy way to access your ability to affect the physical body. Once self- destructing thoughts and behaviours have been removed, you can begin to use hypnosis  to improve the body’s functioning. Hypnotherapy can be very helpful in correcting patterns of restless sleep, low energy or libido, headaches or chronic pain.
