I have struggled with depression for just about most of my life. I also have some anxiety, adhd and fibromyalgia. I take meds that seem to help. I tried traditional talk therapy for a couple of years in the past. It seemed to help me a little. But really not much at all. I started seeing my hypnotherapist toward the end of 2015. I tend to see him normally, twice a month every other week or sometimes a bit more often. Though usually only once a week max. When I first started to go I was uncertain if it would work. I noticed some changes happening in my thoughts and behaviors right away. In my experience I am fully awake and conscious about what is going on. But with hypnotherapy it is suppose to reach your subconscious and has a deeper effect on both your thoughts and behaviors. After going for 4 or 5 months or so, I noticed that my mood dramatically improved. For the first time in my life I felt moments of true happiness. Something I can honestly say I haven't experienced before. I am still going to hypnotherapy and continuing to improve and change my mood. I have a ways to go but it seems to be successful for me thus far.
