Hypnosis is a useful tool in dealing with depression. Depression is different for each person who experiences it, and there are many different hypnotherapeutic techniques which help. Self-hypnosis training is often effective, as it is able to be used at any time. Regression is helpful if there are certain patterns or emotional responses which trigger the depression. Parts Therapy is an excellent technique to help envision and implement solutions for practical day to day living. For those who feel spiritually empty the Energy Awareness and Life Between Lives are both useful in addressing issues concerning life purpose and life goals. The most important part of relieving depression is taking the first step.
