20% of women and 15% of men at this precise moment are suffering from depression. 25% of all full time working mothers with children under 13 are suffering right now. More single women than single men, separated or divorced women are more likely to feel depressed than men in the same situation. That's quite staggering!
TYPES OF DEPRESSION
Depression is sometimes called the common cold of mental illness. It may come slowly, leaving feelings of sadness and despair, inconsolable misery, and guilt that lasts for more than two weeks, and will start to interfere with work, and other duties, even eating and sleeping.
The other type may be milder, but will last longer, over two years, and may eventually lead to full blown depression. It is called Dysthymia, which means ill-humour in Greek. It will make life dull, and grey and the feeling of sadness is all pervasive.
WHY DO WE GET DEPRESSED?
I recently attended a seminar in Bristol, on 'The way to break the cycle of Depression' by Joe Griffin, organised by Mindfields, a training organisation, dedicated to changing the way we look at emotions and traumas. Joe is a well known Psychotherapist. According to his research on Depression, he says, most cases can be sorted out in 6 weeks. I am a Hypnotherapist and I know that many emotional problems can be sorted out in 3-6 sessions.
His approach is called Human Givens, i.e what is given to us at birth. As a living organism, we need nourishment, and we have been given tools to extract this from our environment. You can see this in our house plants; if the conditions are right the plant will thrive. If it is wilting, we have to do something otherwise it will not survive. We have to water it more often, feed it, move it to another window sill, give it some love, talk to it and so on. Humans are the same. We need emotional support as well as food and shelter. If the environment lacks this, then we become dysfunctional.
Depression is not a genetic illness. Studies show that we tend to be more depressed than people who live in communities. We have not yet been equipped to deal with the rapid changes taking place in the world. We feel powerless on so many levels. There is no support from the extended family set up. Families break up easily. We are emotional beings and we should not deny this important characteristic. However many of us ignore these feelings, thinking that they will pass, but evidence shows that they always catch up with us, in the form of dis-eases. We have to take ownership and accept them first before laying them to rest.
Women have a higher tendency to get depressed than men, but men, because they can't express their feelings are more likely to commit suicide. It is so unfortunate that children and teenagers are now suffering from depression. They suffer adversely from the side effects of drugs because their immune system cannot cope, just like the elderly. Anti depressants can offer a breathing space for some people while the problem is being tackled, but the cause of the dysfunction must be dealt with, otherwise a relapse is more likely to happen.
Prolonged daily stress leads to infections and hormonal imbalances. Your body finds it difficult to monitor your health, the T-cell activity is reduced, and your immune response slows down.
WHAT STARTS THIS CYCLE?
Depression, according to Joe Griffin, stems from two things:
· Lack of quality sleep and
· An obsession with the past or the future. This could be because of a period of stress that has not been dealt with properly.
We work better on seven to eight hours of sleep. Night time our body goes through 4 cycles of brain frequencies. The rapid eye movement allows the brain to scan the day's fears and anxieties and then discharge a lot of emotional toxins. We wake up the next day feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. When sleep is disrupted, or when we oversleep, the brain either did not have a chance to finish this job or it used a lot of energy, which then makes us deficient in the day. We wake up, feeling unrefreshed, tired and lethargic. To get better, we need to be able to re-set this sleep pattern.
When we are depressed, we live in a prison, unable to see daylight. We think only in black and white. We live in the past or the future, imagining the worst scenarios. Every time a negative thought pops in our head, we are making another copy. Soon we become overwhelmed by it all, because our brain cannot release so much guilt, hurt, resentment, anxieties, fears and so on. The hard drive of our brain becomes clogged up and crashes. Sometimes we become numb and we cannot feel joy and happiness in the way we were meant to.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE?
Action should be taken to do the things which previously gave satisfaction. Negative thinking should be reversed, traumas released, psychological scars removed, diet and health supplements encouraged.. That is all that is needed to get better. There is no need to discuss the past in great detail. Counselling or Psychotherapy will not give you what is needed in this case. It is advisable to concentrate in the now, find out the needs and take small steps. Get the skill that is lacking and see a miracle happen before your very eyes. This programme is also suitable for Post Natal Depression, Bi-Polar problems, grief, Chronic Fatigue, PTSD & Fibromyalgia.
By the third session , you will be a lot stronger, so more traumas will be laid to rest. By the fourth session, any psychological scars and childhood issues will not have such significance, as they are also removed in a safe manner.
The rest of the sessions are used to check and re-check the work, also to focus in the now and create the support and framework needed to become strong again. I use the QXCI, a computerised quantum device to recommend food and health supplements. I re-educate the mind to think in a different way. By then, you will not recognise yourself. You will have the skills and knowledge to help you move forward in your life and to make sure that you do not suffer a relapse.
I use Hypnosis and life coaching. Hypnosis is a state that we need to go through everyday. It is the daydreaming that we do without any conscious effort. We can be watching TV, reading a book, staring blankly at something or when we drive our car effortlessly. It is safe and you are always in control, you can come out of that state anytime. Self Hypnosis allows you to go in consciously. Suggestions and a number of techniques are used to achieve these objectives. The rapid eye movement is activated in order to release negative feelings and install positive ones.
I am available to talk to anyone who would like to break their cycle of Depression. I charge £450. All you need is six sessions, 12 hours in total and within a month, you would be activating a different mind set, and bringing JOY back into your life. It is that simple.
Also please remember that sometimes even though you are displaying the usual signs of depression, you might think you are OK. keep struggling for another day and you will be fine. Another day will probably turn into a month and a year and before you know it is five years, or otherwise many have a full blown nervous breakdown.
KEY TO HAPPINESS
According to a new book out called " Making Happy People" by Paul Martin, He says that :
Happiness is good for you, so don't be embarassed about making it your top priority.
Take a long-term view - there is much more to happiness than immediate pleasure.
Personal relationships are central to happiness.
Don't forget the body - get plenty of sleep and exercise.
Be active and engaged- throw youself into meaningful pursuits.
Look outwards not inwards - focus your attention on the world around you rather than your own thoughts and feelings.
Wealth and fame do not produce happiness - and chasing after them can lead to misery.
(Excerpt from the Daily Mail by A. Waugh)
These are pearls of wisdom, but once the spiral has started, it is difficult to be that objective, that's when you need to ask for help. Hypnotherapy is a less demanding way to get connected again.

Research on Depression
This is interesting but really the sample is too small to draw any conclusions from. It also throws up a curious anomaly. The 15 depressed people in the control group who stopped medication and psychotherapy to go swimming (*without* dolphins) for a fortnight also got better. It looks like the medication and psychotherapy was doing them less good than going on holiday for a couple of weeks. Best, Don
Dolphin therapy fights depression
Swimming with dolphins appears to help alleviate mild to moderate depression, researchers have found.
A University of Leicester team tested the effect of regular swimming sessions with dolphins on 15 depressed people in a study carried out in Honduras. They found that symptoms improved more among this group than among another 15 who swam in the same area - but did not interact with dolphins. The study is published in the British Medical Journal. [...]
Half the volunteers swam and snorkelled around dolphins for one hour a day over a two-week period. The others took part in the same activities, but without dolphins around. Two weeks later, both groups showed improved mental health, but especially so among patients who had been swimming with the dolphins.

This research does not tell us how long the improvement lasted. If going on holiday can change your perception, think what you can achieve with Hypnosis, the power of your the mind.
