Mild Mental Illness Hypnotherapy can Help

According to The Guardian in an article published on the 19th June 2013, official figures from the Office of National Statistics have shown that mild mental illness such as anxiety and depression affects nearly one in five UK adults. An in-depth look at the findings showed that the highest level of mild mental health illness is in the 50-54 year old age group and among women. Additionally high levels of anxiety or depression was seen in those who were relatively unhappy with their health compared to just 11 percent who were happy with their health.

Hypnotherapy can work towards establishing the root of the problem and teach the client techniques to control symptoms such as anxiety.”

This year’s figures are of great interest to those in the health and well-being sector as The National Council for Hypnotherapy spokesperson explained:

“It is always great to raise awareness of mental health by gathering statistics and investigating any problem areas that may be occurring in the UK. Whilst it is recommended to visit a GP if you feel you are affected by any of the mentioned mild mental health issues, it is also worth noting that complementary therapies can also help relieve symptoms. Hypnotherapy can work towards establishing the root of the problem and teach the client techniques to control symptoms such as anxiety.”
