Low Mood

One Foot In Front of The Other...

Low mood or depression will affect one in four of us at some time in our lives. We may have an idea of what has led us to feel as we do; a loss, a redundancy, a relationship breakdown... It is also possible we have no clue as to where our feelings originate.

Low mood affects each of us, for brief periods, throughout our lives, and this is usual. However, when it persists and we feel hopeless, overwhelmed, and find that engaging in life is increasingly difficult, then professional help may be needed to help us recover. Having such a low mood is not something we can simply "snap out of" or are able to "pull yourself together", it can be all-encompassing, exhausting, confusing and can mean we often cannot see clearly. Seeking help is not a weakness. If you broke an arm you wouldn't simply let it heal by itself; you would seek appropriate help. Mental ill-health is just as important and seeking help is equally valid.  Not seeking help because you may feel embarrassed, unworthy or ashamed will lead to further decline and maladaptive coping strategies.

Achelois Clinical Therapy can offer a Cognitive, Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy approach to helping to effect positive change - to get you back to being your usual self. 

It is important to note that hypnotherapy is an effective treatment, not a cure. If your GP has prescribed drug treatment it is recommended you continue to take them as prescribed and have hypnotherapy in conjunction with your treatment,  Any changes to your prescription should only be made following a discussion with your GP.

Achelois can help you make the changes necessary for you to re-emerge, without fear of judgment or ridicule.
