Discover Your Meaningful Existence: Overcoming Anxiety and Symptoms of Depression with Hypnotherapy

Person looking through binoculars, beyond anxiety and depression, for a meaningful existence

When Meaningful Existence is woven into Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Depression, What is Possible?

Hypnotherapy can help you to reduce anxiety, stress and depression symptoms, build resilience and hope and to move from a loss to a growth mindset, when applied through the context of a meaningful life existence.

When we have meaning in life, levels of anxiety, depression and stress appear lower, according to Chen et al., (2021), Dursun et al., (2022) and Köksal et al., (2014). Facco et al., (2017) found that resilience, realised through hypnotic treatment, is highly effective when underpinned by “a shared, meaningful… approach to life”. Furthermore, Handel and Néron, (2017) identified Hypnotherapeutic approaches as having great potential to enhance a sense of hope and move from mindsets of loss to growth in cancer patients.

How can Hypnotherapy help with Anxiety and Depression?

The beneficial effects of Hypnotherapy specifically for anxiety and depression are even better understood:

  • “Hypnosis is a very effective way of alleviating the symptoms of depression” (Milling et al., 2019)
  • The use of hypnotic interventions has shown greater benefits than controls for treating  anxiety and depression, among other outcomes, according to Terhune et al., (2017)
  • Hypnotic treatments reduced anxiety by 79%, and at follow-up, more than 84%, for average participants compared with controls (Valentine et al., 2019)

These findings certainly resonate with my experience as a Hypnotherapist since 2004.

How Long Before my Existence will Truly be Meaningful?

There are no shortcuts to living a life full of passion, meaning and purpose and the first steps are often the most challenging. You will need to go ‘all in’ on this!…

…But something interesting happens when we take our first steps in a meaningful life and get into a momentum. Our point of view shifts, time moves more quickly and distances shrink. You will know what I mean if you have ever gone on a long walk, or car journey.
