SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder

Here at Cambridge Hypnotherapy we help clients with so many different and varied issues or as we would call them behaviours. Why behaviours? well simply put we are all behaving in ways we either like or dislike. So we simply help people to stop experiencing what they don't like and and begin to enjoy life again.

If you were to ask anyone you know how they feel in Summer compared to Winter however, I'm sure that you will get a common theme with your results. Most of us are much happier when the sun is shining and we can get out and about, and likewise we are commonly down when it is dark and dreary. Some people obviously suffer with these changes more than others and can often de diagnosed as having SAD.

So ...... SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder.... what exactly is it?

According to the NHS it is "a type of depression that has a seasonal pattern. The episodes of depression tend to occur at the same time each year, usually during the winter". We at Cambridge Hypnotherapy feel slightly different.

I personally think that it can dangerous to label people with things such as SAD, or general depression for a few reasons. Firstly, if they have an issue such as depression or SAD, they lose track of any responsibility for their emotions and believe that they will last forever and start to simply try to manage them instead of letting go of them. Secondly, when we give someone a label they will start to live their life in a way that fits with this new identity. They will believe that they can't go certain places, or do certain things in accordance with their new identity. To start with when it comes those with SAD, as soon as winter is approaching and summer is ending, they are instantly dreading the impending arrival of their depression and preparing themselves for when it arrives. One question though..... What if it didn't arrive? That simple questions takes them out of their problem state and immediately makes them look at things from a different angle. How will their winter be knowing they can still go anywhere, cosy up in front a fire, play snowball fights with their children? seems kind of fun now, right?
