The World Health Organisation

Estimates that depression will be the number one health concern both in developed and developing world by 2030.



Depression is the fourth largest cause of suffering and disability worldwide and sadly, will be the second largest cause of suffering and disability by 2020.


Are you experiencing depression symptoms:

  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions

  • Fatigue and decreased energy

  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness

  • Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism

  • Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping

  • Irritability, restlessness

  • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex

  • Overeating or appetite loss

  • Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment

  • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings

  • Having suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts




We can help

Not getting treatment for your depression can be life threatening. More than one out of every 10 people dealing with depression commits suicide!


In fact the view that depression is more a problem created by habitual patterns of thought and the anxiety that comes from excessive analysis through excessively negative glasses than any chemical anomaly is fast gaining ground in the USA and will eventually become the accepted wisdom here too. However, right now, our views differ markedly from most in the field.



The sense of helplessness, lethargy and the lack of hope that many experience responds very well to our therapeutic approach.

Depression Treatment example

Arguably, the natural healthy state of a person is happiness.  Depression is an alteration of the natural state. This alone means hope for people. By fixing a part or removing the blockage we return to a habit of happiness.  Bellow is a short list of some hypnotherapeutic treatments and what you can expect from them.

Treatment One

The way we look and connect emotions to events

As Monthy Phyton said in the movie ” the life of Brian” always look at the bright side of life. How do we perceive and how are our emotions connected to our events of the past and how do we perceive the future?  


Everybody has a past and it can be a burden, filled with guilt, regret, sadness, painful experiences, missed opportunities etc. or it can be just our past and that’s all. People who don’t suffer form depression see most of the time their past as something that is behind them, lessons learned, some scars, happy moments, feedback on events. People who suffer from depression still live their past, it is not behind them.


In this treatment we focus on disconnection from the past, living in the now and future.


Treatment Two
Parts Therapy

Parts therapy is a way of reconciling ambivalence. Often, people can get stuck between two opposing goals. For example, a person wants and deserves to feel protected from harm in life, however when a person’s subconscious over-protects them, they can be at risk of missing out on life altogether. There is an acceptable risk in life that we take simply by leaving our houses.


Parts therapy is all about finding an appropriate balance. Parts can also come into play when we talk about the different persona’s that people use in differing social circumstances. For example, a person can be either a mother or a father, in which persona they modify their choice of words and communication depending on the age of their child. The way you would speak in a job interview, to a friend or to a six year old would all require the mind to change from one persona to the next.


Parts therapy slows down the process of communicating with the sub conscious so that one part at a time can be spoken to. At the highest possible level, all parts of a person exist for their highest possible protection. Some parts are using successful strategies while other parts are using lesser techniques.


Whether a person is torn between being a smoker or non smoker or making any decision at all, both parts want what will provide the most amount of protection. A smoker may feel that they do not want to give up their only method of dealing with stress. A person wanting to lose weight may feel that they do not want to give up their sexual protection.


Until a person can resolve their internal conflict and find harmony between their desires and internal strategies, they will not find happiness. This is where Parts Hypnotherapy has been very effective for many people experiencing ambivalence.

Treatment Three

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is made up of many things. Behavior is the key ingredient in outcomes. How a person behaves will dictate many of the rewards and benefits that a person receives in life.


Outside of uncontrollable circumstances, most of life is made up of choices and outcomes. For example, when a person’s goal does not align with their outcome, such as a person who wants money, love, a house etc… but is going the opposite way about getting those things, they have a cognitive dissonance.


CBT can be as simple as correct goal setting strategies and life coaching. CBT is becoming a more and more popular part of Hypnotherapy, as many people are finding that the better you externalize your life plan, the better the chances of your success. Much of people’s communication is still taken up with Generalizations, Deletions, Distortions, manipulations etc…


These forms of communication mostly give little to no rewards. Hypnotherapy is a clarification model. I encourage anyone to become clearer about what it is that they really want in life and to have the courage to write it down in detail. Hypnotherapy is often seen as a short cut to creating a life plan.

Treatment Four
Gestalt Therapy


There is no English translation for Gestalt. In its essence, Gestalt therapy is designed as a holistic treatment for the mind. By asking the subconscious itself what it wants, we can increase the chances of jumping straight to a solution.


Often therapies within Gestalt such as past clearing, the empty chair technique and other integrations of NLP have surprised people at the speed of their recovery. Imagine being able to use the knowledge stored in your subconscious to be able to instantly point out what type of therapy would be the fastest path between where you currently are and where you would like to be in life.


What’s stopping you from receiving all of the love, money, health, freedom, fun or adventure that you deserve? It can often take something as holistic as Gestalt to find those answers.

Furthermore It is often see that the past is the present for people who do depression.


To read more about why we know depression can treated so successfully: Michael Yapko interview


This is what one of my ex-patients wrote to me after 4 sessions: “ I came to Christopher with a baggage of 60 years of misery, had anxiety, depression and a lot more.


After one session for the first time in more than a decade I didn’t want to die and thought how life would like in 10 years, after the other session I learned the skills to live my own life. And now after 4 session I have MY life back, I’m happy and embracing life as I never did before.”


You are at the right spot to find a solution, why?
