Unlike mood swings which each person will have, depression is classed as a physical illness which can be medically diagnosed by your GP.
Feelings of hopelessness, helplessness as well as low sex drive, low motivation and an absence of enthusiasm for life are common. The extent of the symptoms will vary greatly depending upon mild depression or clinical depression.
Unlike medical route to treatment, which will often involve taking drugs hide the real feelings, we aim to get to the root of the issue.
We find depression is often based upon an overwhelm of negative or unhelpful memories which are constantly being accesses by the brain. This results in excessive chemicals which make a person feel low to be manufactured by the body, resulting in symptoms of depression.
Rather than masking the feelings with drugs, our approach often involves:
- Learning lessons to ensure we don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater – what was life trying to teach you?
- Clearing up of old memories so that they can be accesses without an influx of negative chemicals into the body
- Re-organising the storage of memories so they are stored in more helpful locations. (memories are stored in various places and part of our work is to store them helpfully)
- Learning to do things differently so the depression stays away
Our role as an NLP Master Health Practitioner is to assume that there is some reason why your body is creating this fear. Having successfully worked with many sufferers of fear, many seem to have a common thread. Although the reason behind the fear may be different, our approach is similar. Although it is possible that you have had these symptoms for years, it is also possible that if you change your thinking, your stress can reduce and ultimately become insignificant.
