Help for DEPRESSION

Psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, and counselling in Bristol and Online

Let's start with a question...

 

 

 

Where might you be six months from now?

 

 

 

Will you still be struggling with depression? Perhaps in an even worse state! It doesn't have to be that way. In just a few weeks I can help you turn it around so you can set yourself on a different path and find yourself somewhere very different in six months time. Big words I know, but most people don't realise that their symptoms can be helped. Stick on the kettle and let's find out how...

Allow me to reassure you that this is perfectly normal, and it’s something most people feel when they’re looking for help to tackle a personal matter, such as depression. It’s hard to imagine what someone else could say or do to help you conquer your depression that you haven’t already tried yourself! Having successfully helped thousands of people triumph over what they thought was impossible, I believe that many symptoms and problems - like most other problems we encounter in life - can be brought to a successful and satisfying resolution when the right approached is used.

 

 

 

 

BASIC FACTS ABOUT DEPRESSION

 

Depression is a well-known, treatable condition in which you experience a persistent low mood, as well as feelings of being overwhelmed or distressed by life, a loss of interest in activities, an inability to experience pleasure, joy, enthusiasm or motivation, and feelings of guilt or low self-worth. It often leads to disturbances in sleep, appetite, and sex drive. Depression can feel as if life has lost its colour, its meaning, and its joy. You feel listless and life typically feels pointless and bleak. Rather than being a familiar but temporary state of despondency we can all experience from time-to-time in relation to life-stressors or the natural cycles of our moods, depression is more enduring, pervasive, and distressing. In some cases depression can spiral into suicidal feelings. Whether therapy for depression is highly recommended as it will help you move

 

 

 

 

WHY AM I FEELING SO DEPRESSED?

 

Depression can be caused by all sorts of things. In some cases my clients have experienced unsettling life events such as relationship difficulties, work troubles, or health complications. While at other times my clients have no clear sense of what could be causing their depression. In either case, clients typically feel confused and overwhelmed and wonder why they're experiencing such strong emotional states. No matter what you’re going through right now, I want you to know that you’re not weak, and you’re not crazy or weird. If you were crazy you wouldn’t be worried about what’s happening and you wouldn’t be exploring ways to help yourself improve things. The simplest way I can help explain what’s happening is that you have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind, and the reason you’re struggling to make sense of what you’re currently experiencing is that it probably has to do with your unconscious mind; the part of your mind you can’t ordinarily 'see'. Far from being some scary place as some people think, your unconscious mind comprises a number of different brain regions whose job is simply to process lots of information in the background so you don’t have to...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An easy way to think of it is that your brain is like a computer. Your conscious mind is the computer screen on which you can see images and perform certain tasks, whereas your unconscious mind is everything that’s happening inside the computer that you can’t see - it’s all the algorithms and number crunching. Your depression, then, could be thought of as an ‘error’ message that’s popped up on the screen to warn you that something needs attention. You can see it, but you might not know why it’s popped up or how to fix it. My job is like a ‘tech guy’ you take your computer to after you’ve tried to sort things out by yourself. I use various tools and techniques to help you quickly work out what’s going on and get you back up and running.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BENEFITS OF GETTING HELP FOR YOUR DEPRESSION

 

There can be any number of potential causes of depression or depressed mood, so I work with people on a individual basis to provide them with the space, support, and skills to get to the root of the problem. One of the less talked about benefits of therapy, beyond finding solutions to your depression, is that you walk away with a deeper level of self-insight, which enables you to feel more at peace with yourself and have better relationships with other people and the world around you. You feel like a better, stronger version of yourself, and you’re able to create a better life for yourself and the people around you. I often say to my clients, "Let not just overcome the depression, let's aim to get to a place where you never have to experience depression ever again!" I’m sure you’ll see from the numerous verified reviews on the website that this isn’t just some shallow sales speak. Even though I’m in the business of therapy, I’m not the least bit interesting in selling you anything that won't benefit your life. My passion and joy comes from seeing real people make real transformations to their lives. I’m comfortable sharing with you that I also needed some therapy in the past and it was hands-down the best thing I've ever done for myself. I aim for all my clients to walk away saying the same thing.

 

 

 

 

 

HELP IS AT HAND

 

To use the American terminology, depression sucks! You already know this. You wouldn’t be looking at this page otherwise. So allow me to reassure you that help is at hand. At The Bristol Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy Clinic I’ve aimed to create a service that takes the fear and uncertainty out of getting help. I provide a range of different therapy services that can help you quickly get to the bottom of things and make the changes you'd like to see. For your convenience I offer face-to-face consultations at my clinic in Bristol as well as providing online therapy sessions for depression over Skype or FaceTime. I also offer a FREE initial consultation so that we can discuss your needs in privacy and comfort - and so you can get a feel for if this is the right direction for you - without you having to spend a penny!

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION?

 

The initial consultation is a very relaxed and informal process that usually lasts around an hour. In the initial consultation we'll have a cup of tea or coffee and start by discussing your symptoms. I'll then ask you a few questions about your current life and background, as well as doing one or two quick questionnaires that will help me get to know you better. We will then discuss your treatment options and talk through any worries or concerns you may have. Once we agree on a way forward we'll arrange a date from which to commence. You are of course under no obligation to commence treatment if it doesn't feel right. It's important that you find a therapist you feel comfortable with. The main aim of the initial consultation is to provide us with an opportunity ensure we are well-suited to work together. I understand that therapy involves an input of your time and money so I make every effort to ensure you have a rewarding experience.

 

 

 

 

HOW WILL YOU HELP ME OVERCOME DEPRESSION?

 

Naturally most people don’t know what to do when things FEEL out of control. Sometimes my clients have only just started experiencing depression, while at other times they have been experiencing depression and other related issues for a number of years. Everybody's needs are different and over the years I developed a unique way of helping people that I refer to as Sequential Psychotherapy. Whether you're interested in a specific type of therapy such as hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy, analytical therapy, coherence therapy, or counselling, or you simply don't know what help you need, sequential psychotherapy draws on all these approaches to provide you with a map of what steps we can take to help you overcome your symptoms and improve your life. If, like most people, you're unsure of what therapy actually is and how it can help, or it all just seems a bit confusing and new, I made this easy-to-understand video to walk you through the basics...

One of the less talked about benefits of therapy, beyond finding solutions to your depression, is that you walk away with a deeper level of self-insight, which enables you to feel more at peace with yourself and have better relationships with other people and the world around you.

I’m sure you’ll see from the numerous verified reviews on the website that this isn’t just some shallow sales speak. Even though I’m in the business of therapy, I’m not the least bit interesting in selling you anything that won't benefit your life. My passion and joy comes from seeing real people make real transformations to their lives. I’m comfortable sharing with you that I also needed some therapy in the past and it was hands-down the best thing I've ever done for myself. I aim for all my clients to walk away saying the same thing.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION?

 

The initial consultation is a very relaxed and informal process that usually lasts around an hour. In the initial consultation we'll have a cup of tea or coffee and start by discussing your symptoms. I'll then ask you a few questions about your current life and background, as well as doing one or two quick questionnaires that will help me get to know you better. We will then discuss your treatment options and talk through any worries or concerns you may have. Once we agree on a way forward we'll arrange a date from which to commence. You are of course under no obligation to commence treatment if it doesn't feel right. It's important that you find a therapist you feel comfortable with. The main aim of the initial consultation is to provide us with an opportunity ensure we are well-suited to work together. I understand that therapy involves an input of your time and money so I make every effort to ensure you have a rewarding experience.

 

 

 

 

HOW WILL YOU HELP ME OVERCOME DEPRESSION?

 

Naturally most people don’t know what to do when things FEEL out of control. Sometimes my clients have only just started experiencing depression, while at other times they have been experiencing depression and other related issues for a number of years. Everybody's needs are different and over the years I developed a unique way of helping people that I refer to as Sequential Psychotherapy. Whether you're interested in a specific type of therapy such as hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy, analytical therapy, coherence therapy, or counselling, or you simply don't know what help you need, sequential psychotherapy draws on all these approaches to provide you with a map of what steps we can take to help you overcome your symptoms and improve your life. If, like most people, you're unsure of what therapy actually is and how it can help, or it all just seems a bit confusing and new, I made this easy-to-understand video to walk you through the basics...

Let's start with a question...

 

 

 

Where might you be six months from now?

 

 

 

Will you still be struggling with depression? Perhaps in an even worse state! It doesn't have to be that way. In just a few weeks I can help you turn it around so you can set yourself on a different path and find yourself somewhere very different in six months time. Big words I know, but most people don't realise that their symptoms can be helped. Stick on the kettle and let's find out how...

 

 

 

 

PSYCHOTHERAPY, HYPNOTHERAPY, & COUNSELLING FOR DEPRESSION

 

If you’re looking for help to overcome depression and you’re considering some sort of therapy as an option you may be feeling nervous or apprehensive, or perhaps a little sceptical, or even worried that you can’t be helped. Allow me to reassure you that this is perfectly normal, and it’s something most people feel when they’re looking for help to tackle a personal matter, such as depression. It’s hard to imagine what someone else could say or do to help you conquer your depression that you haven’t already tried yourself! Having successfully helped thousands of people triumph over what they thought was impossible, I believe that many symptoms and problems - like most other problems we encounter in life - can be brought to a successful and satisfying resolution when the right approached is used.

BASIC FACTS ABOUT DEPRESSION

 

Depression is a well-known, treatable condition in which you experience a persistent low mood, as well as feelings of being overwhelmed or distressed by life, a loss of interest in activities, an inability to experience pleasure, joy, enthusiasm or motivation, and feelings of guilt or low self-worth. It often leads to disturbances in sleep, appetite, and sex drive. Depression can feel as if life has lost its colour, its meaning, and its joy. You feel listless and life typically feels pointless and bleak. Rather than being a familiar but temporary state of despondency we can all experience from time-to-time in relation to life-stressors or the natural cycles of our moods, depression is more enduring, pervasive, and distressing. In some cases depression can spiral into suicidal feelings. Whether therapy for depression is highly recommended as it will help you move

 

 

 

 

WHY AM I FEELING SO DEPRESSED?

 

Depression can be caused by all sorts of things. In some cases my clients have experienced unsettling life events such as relationship difficulties, work troubles, or health complications. While at other times my clients have no clear sense of what could be causing their depression. In either case, clients typically feel confused and overwhelmed and wonder why they're experiencing such strong emotional states. No matter what you’re going through right now, I want you to know that you’re not weak, and you’re not crazy or weird. If you were crazy you wouldn’t be worried about what’s happening and you wouldn’t be exploring ways to help yourself improve things. The simplest way I can help explain what’s happening is that you have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind, and the reason you’re struggling to make sense of what you’re currently experiencing is that it probably has to do with your unconscious mind; the part of your mind you can’t ordinarily 'see'. Far from being some scary place as some people think, your unconscious mind comprises a number of different brain regions whose job is simply to process lots of information in the background so you don’t have to...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An easy way to think of it is that your brain is like a computer. Your conscious mind is the computer screen on which you can see images and perform certain tasks, whereas your unconscious mind is everything that’s happening inside the computer that you can’t see - it’s all the algorithms and number crunching. Your depression, then, could be thought of as an ‘error’ message that’s popped up on the screen to warn you that something needs attention. You can see it, but you might not know why it’s popped up or how to fix it. My job is like a ‘tech guy’ you take your computer to after you’ve tried to sort things out by yourself. I use various tools and techniques to help you quickly work out what’s going on and get you back up and running.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BENEFITS OF GETTING HELP FOR YOUR DEPRESSION

 

There can be any number of potential causes of depression or depressed mood, so I work with people on a individual basis to provide them with the space, support, and skills to get to the root of the problem. One of the less talked about benefits of therapy, beyond finding solutions to your depression, is that you walk away with a deeper level of self-insight, which enables you to feel more at peace with yourself and have better relationships with other people and the world around you. You feel like a better, stronger version of yourself, and you’re able to create a better life for yourself and the people around you. I often say to my clients, "Let not just overcome the depression, let's aim to get to a place where you never have to experience depression ever again!" I’m sure you’ll see from the numerous verified reviews on the website that this isn’t just some shallow sales speak. Even though I’m in the business of therapy, I’m not the least bit interesting in selling you anything that won't benefit your life. My passion and joy comes from seeing real people make real transformations to their lives. I’m comfortable sharing with you that I also needed some therapy in the past and it was hands-down the best thing I've ever done for myself. I aim for all my clients to walk away saying the same thing.
