Hypnotherapy in West Bridgford for Postnatal Depression
Sadly, instead of being a joyful time, the arrival of a newborn baby can set off depression for a few mums and dads. With high social expectations of joy from the mum and dad, coping with postnatal depression can be very lonesome, disturbing and problematic.
Yet, parents who have a problem with post-natal depression are in good company; as much as 15% of new parents are likely to have suffered similar issues. Given that new mums and dads who are troubled with this disorder often do reach out for help – the actual numbers might well be much higher.
What are the symptoms of post-natal depressive disorders?
Postnatal depression (PND) also called Postpartum depression (PPD), is much like depression encountered at other times and for other reasons. The unique troubles and stresses of becoming a mother or father, however, can make it all the more confusing, since you may not grasp what is ‘normal’ or not, or if you’re just feeling over-tired from caring for your infant.
Here are a few common symptoms:
- Gloominess, low mood and /or tearfulness
- Decreased energy or weariness
- Feeling cranky or easily infuriated
- Inability to sleep
- Changes in desire for food – This can manifest as loss of appetite, or an elevated appetite leading to comfort eating and gaining of weight.
- Hard to enjoy anything
- Deficient libido
- Guilty or negative feelings about yourself
- Not wanting to go out with friends or family
- Thoughts of suicide
Nastier difficulties may develop in a small number of people, such as visions or the generation of bizarre beliefs.
How hypnosis in West Bridgford could help?
Hypnotherapy in West Bridgford for postnatal depression has proven to be a valuable approach for many. Some people find that anti-depressant medication will help get them back on their feet, yet as a long-term resolution it is often not so beneficial. In some cases it is because stressful events might have brought on or led to the postnatal depression, that are still unresolved, or since the postnatal depression is in fact an extension of pre-existing depressive disorders or worry. For that reason, prescription medication can only help so much. Some individuals find psychotherapy in West Bridgford and Grantham or talk therapy to be the most beneficial approach to achieving long-term healing.
As hypnosis works in concert with the subconscious mind, the hypnotherapist will have a much better chance of discovering the root cause of your depression. Some new mothers feel guilty about experiencing postnatal depression; they can’t understand why they feel so low given that they simply adore their baby and can’t think of why they should be depressed. Even if a parent is unable to build a relationship with their new baby, the specific reason behind the problems is probably not the baby in any respect.
In fact, many underlying reasons can trigger postnatal depression, and each person’s experience is unique. A hypnotherapist may help re-wire the underlying attitudes and thoughts in your subconscious mind which might be causing your depression, so as to be free you to begin your new life as a parent.
