Depression can be caused by a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors.
Your lifestyle choices, relationships, and coping skills matter just as much—if not more so—than genetics. However, certain risk factors make you more vulnerable to depression.
- Lack of social support
- Recent stressful life experiences
- Family history of depression
- Marital or relationship problems
- Financial strain
- Early childhood trauma or abuse
- Alcohol or drug abuse
- Unemployment or underemployment
- Health problems or chronic pain
In most cases, the best approach to relieving depression involves a combination of social support, lifestyle changes, emotional skills building, and professional help.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy and NLP can help to provide the support you need to work on the causes of your depression and build techniques and strategies that help put you back in control.

The following testimonial is provided by the wife of a client who has been taking anti-depressants for 20 years. The testimonial is provided after 21 sessions that have been spaced out over the course of a year.
I can say that there is a huge improvement in the person of a year ago. He is a joy to be with at the moment and is causing me less worry than he was. I think the improvement is seen by all including employers who says that he is enjoying his job more and is back to the happy chappy he was. I know that he uses your strategies as a couple of times he has said that he has not felt well at work but gets through it having a good talk to himself as a year ago he would have just come straight home for the week. He has not had a day off sick since going back in January after his 2nd operation.
I cannot thank you enough for helping him and know that he has decreased his tablets to half a tablet every other day so that is a huge improvement and finds seeing you every now and then a real help. I can’t say that we don’t have our moments but they are less frequent and less stressful/worrying/anxious than they were.
