Depression is now considered a medical term, and hypnotherapy is never used to treat medical conditions. However, with hypnotherapy we can change the mental, emotional, and spiritual landscape within which this medical condition is occuring. Years ago I went to a hypnotherapist because I felt depressed. He didn’t “treat” the depression, he “treated” me – as a human being, with respect, dignity, caring, and unconditional acceptance. The old emotions, beliefs, and mental habits are gone, replaced with acceptance, contentment, and happiness. The day is not longer a chore to “get through,” but an opportunity to enjoy.
