Depression treatment

At Shinhypnosis, we find that many people come to hypnotherapy because of problems with sleep, lack of energy and sadness, which can all be symptoms of depression. Depression can manifest itself in many ways. Often people struggle with heavy and negative thoughts about themselves or life in general and are very depressed. Physically, most people will also feel that they have no energy or desire to do anything or be with other people.

Having depression can be a serious condition that may require medical attention and medication. If you have been experiencing daily low mood, sadness and a reduced desire to engage in activities for an extended period of time, you should contact your doctor. He or she will be able to assess whether medical treatment is needed and provide you with ways to cope with your depression.


Depression can mean many things and cover many different emotional states and it affects people both mentally and physically.

  • Decreased self-confidence
  • Loss of belief in yourself
  • Feeling depressed
  • Lack of energy
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased desire
  • Many worries
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia


There are several opinions on treating depression with medication, but it’s always important to consult with your doctor to help you decide what would be best for you.

*Hypnotherapy can have a very positive effect on the emotions that arise in a person suffering from depression. For mild and moderate depression, it is possible to treat with hypnotherapy alone without combining it with medication. Our experience has shown us that 1-2 sessions of hypnotherapy can often be enough for mild depression. For severe depression, it will often be necessary to get medical treatment, where hypnotherapy can help you regain courage and lightness.

Hypnotherapy can be used as a method to overcome depression. *Through hypnotherapy, we can identify and process the factors that have triggered the depression and find the cause behind it. We can also use hypnotherapy to turn negative thoughts around, giving you a positive outlook on life and a brighter picture of the future. The most important thing we can do with hypnotherapy is to strengthen you internally, giving you back your self-esteem and self-confidence – this will rub off on the physical symptoms you have in connection with your depression.
