Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression which occurs at the same time every year. For most people this occurs in the autumn and winter seasons as day light hours are reduced dramatically. If the depression reoccurs repeatedly for at least two years and only occurs at a particular time of year, then you could be suffering from SAD.
Many people suffering from SAD experience all or some of the following symptoms : decreased energy, lack of enthusiasm, decreased or increased appetite, insomnia or hypersomnia, lack of concentration, loss of pleasure in activities you once enjoyed, thoughts of suicide or death, social isolation or anxiety. People affected by SAD often crave carbohydrate foods which make them feel even more sluggish so the vicious cycle continues.
SAD, like any major depression, can be very debilitating and often requires professional treatment to alleviate the symptoms. Hypnotherapy can play an enormous part in reducing the anxiety and symptoms related to this condition. At Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic we use both Analytical Hypnotherapy and Suggestion Therapy to enable our clients to free themselves from this annual cycle of depression. Analytical Hypnotherapy allows the client to get to the emotional root cause of the condition, why you have this in the first place and others do not! Suggestion Therapy is very effective because when you experience something under hypnosis your mind reacts as if this very thing is real. Therefore, you can imagine that you are experiencing daylight, sunshine, warmth from the sun and feel the benefits as if it were a warm sunny Summer’s day.
We have successfully treated many clients here at the Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic in Peel who have suffered from SAD. Those people are now living normal, happy, joyful lives all through the year whatever the season. So don’t just brush off this condition as just the ‘winter blues’ that you have to put up with on a yearly basis. Why not enjoy today and every day to the full!
