Stress and Depression
Hypnotherapy is proven to be one of the most powerful ways of dealing with stress and depression.
Depression is an illness that affects 9.5% of the American population, or about 18.8 million adults. Women are diagnosed with depression about twice as often as men. The economic cost for this illness is high, but the cost of human suffering is impossible to estimate. Depression interferes with normal functioning and causes pain and suffering not only to those who have the illness, but also to those who care about them. Serious depression can disrupt and destroy family life as well as the life of the ill person.
Depression comes in different forms, just as is the case with other illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. Major depression is manifested by a combination of symptoms that interfere with the ability to work, study, sleep, eat and feel joy in every-day life. A less severe type of depression, dysthymia involves long-term, chronic symptoms that do not disable, but keep one from functioning well or from feeling good. Many people with dysthymia also experience major depressive episodes at some time in their lives.
Stress is often associated with depression and can cause under-performance at work, relationship problems, and health problems. Prolonged stress can kill! Lowering stress increases productivity and effectiveness, and reduces the number of working days lost to sickness.
Hypnotherapy is one of the only therapies that can achieve a permanent change in your reactions and feelings without you having to make any conscious effort. With Hypnotherapy, you will naturally feel better, you may go through the day just feeling good, and it will feel perfectly natural. Only when you look back over the day you may realize that you have been different from the way you used to think feel and react.
This is a very exciting time for clients as they start experiencing changes in the way they feel and behave resulting in a sense of empowerment for making significant and permanent changes in their lives. The most exciting thing is that this is a natural change and requires no effort.
Overall statistics show that Curative Hypnotherapy has a success rate of 91%.
