SAD…… Letting go of Seasonal Affective Disorder with Hypnotherapy in Cambridge

Monday, October 21st, 2013

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.

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.

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?

Letting go of Depression with Cambridge Hypnotherapy can be very quick and easy. We are unlike Counselling and other forms of Hypnotherapy which seem to go on for 10 sessions plus, sometimes years!

Dealing with grief ~ a good way to remember those we love

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Today is the 2nd anniversary of my mothers passing and who knows what has prompted me to write this, other than to pass on some thoughts. (or maybe just some personal ramblings)

There’s a line in a song

‘ you left me here, to remind me of you’ and that to me is a comfort

~ as long as I am here, so will she.

and hopefully I can display those wonderful qualities she taught me by the way she was and the way she still is within me.

We don’t have to be sad, angry or alone when we remember those who have left us ~ I’m not ~ I miss her and speak to her most days and listen. Not just with my ears but with an awareness and I seem to understand.

But how can you remember in a way that makes you feel ok?

This is what I do.

I think of a good time(s) with her and see it as if I’m looking through my own eyes.

I’m there again,seeing what I saw, hearing what I heard and I feel the good feelings I had and every good memory is the same way. I make it that way because that’s how I want it to be.

If any memory isn’t of a good time, I see it differently. I see myself in the memory, (as if it’s a movie with me in it) over there and I make it smaller and darker, I make it still and move it away from me ~ any not so good feeling just diminish

This is not the only way but a sure way to remember what you want, how you want to and it’s good to remember because……………..

‘ you left me here, to remind me of you’

Enjoy your every heart beat
