Depression Treatment in Aylesbury, Milton Keynes, Amersham and Buckinghamshire

Depression affects many people worldwide and is thought to be one of top five highest causes of disability in the world. ‘Over 350 million people around the world suffer with depression, according to a report issued by the World Health Organization. ‘The World Mental Health Survey conducted in 17 countries found that, on average, about 1 in 20 people reported having an episode of depression in the previous year.

There are two treatments that have been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression; hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. Specifically, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has been shown to be highly effective.

To understand the benefits and limitations of CBT as a treatment for moderate to severe depression, we first need to understand more about depression. Typical symptoms of depression include sadness, tearfulness, fatigue, inability to enjoy life, changes in weight, problem with sleeping, decrease in sexual energy. This may evolve to thoughts of suicide. The cluster of signs and symptoms is sometimes conceptualised as psychopathological dimension ranging in intensity from mild to severe.

There are many reasons why an individual can developdepression. For some, an upsetting or stressful life event – such as divorce, illness, redundancy, job, bereavement or money worries – can be the cause. Early learning experiences, traumas and chronic stresses, can all lead to idiosyncratic beliefs and attitudes which make a person vulnerable to depression. Different people view the same situation in a different way, and these differences can determine why some people become depressed whilst others seem to cope with the situation better. If a person brings stressful life events and depressive thinking habits together, the person is more likely to experience depression.

In terms of common psychological problems like depression, there is no clear line between normal and abnormal. An identifying factor of depression may be the extent to which it impacts on a person’s life, however, some people may appear to live a normal life while suffering in silence. When a person with depression seeks help from a therapist a common behaviour may be that they are no longer engaging in activities which previously gave them pleasure and satisfaction. The aim of Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT) is to counsel them back into those masteries to increase pleasure of engaging in activities, which often results in a decrease of depression. Also use of hypnosis by a properly qualified therapist can achieve eliminate depression.
