The familiar ‘fight, flight, or freeze’ response is our body’s instinctive reaction to perceived threats, essential for survival. Depression, however, has various well-documented causes, including trauma, social and stress factors, chemical imbalances, and genetics. These factors can trigger a sense of threat to our existence.
When we perceive such threats, it’s a natural reaction to retreat and conserve energy, waiting for safer times. This behaviour parallels the ‘freeze’ response in survival mode. Therefore, depression can be viewed as an adaptive response to these perceived existential threats, a way our body and mind try to cope and protect us.

Choose from a hand-picked selection of therapists.
While initially a protective instinct, remaining in a metaphorical state of retreat can be counterproductive. This “shutdown” mode can make it difficult to recognise when the perceived threat has diminished or disappeared, often leading to prolonged or intensified depression.
If this resonates with you and you’re hesitant about leaving your comfort zone, keep reading to discover how hypnotherapy can help you.
A compassionate and effective approach to managing and overcoming depressive thoughts.
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that utilises hypnosis to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility. During hypnotherapy, the hypnotic state allows individuals to explore thoughts, feelings, and memories that might be hidden from their conscious minds.
In this state, you can envision and experience an alternate, more positive version of yourself. This experience brings about neurological changes. Through a series of sessions, tailored to your needs, this process is reinforced, solidifying the positive transformation you seek.
A hypnotherapy session begins with a free initial consultation. Following this, you will experience a relaxing and positive process where you’ll be guided into a state of deep relaxation. During this hypnosis session, suggestions will be made to your subconscious mind to help create positive changes in your thought patterns. You’ll be guided to feel what that different version of you feels like; kickstarting change at a neurological level.
How many sessions will I need?
The number and frequency of hypnotherapy sessions required will depend on the individual and the severity of their anxiety. While some may experience significant improvement after just a few hypnosis sessions, others may require more. Rest assured, each session is a step towards reducing anxiety and improving your mental health.
Does hypnotherapy really work for anxiety?
Hypnotherapy works to treat a wide range of mental health conditions, including anxiety disorders. It’s been supported by clinical trials and peer-reviewed studies as an effective method for reducing anxiety, improving self-esteem, and enhancing self-belief. It’s important to remember that hypnotherapy is not a magic wand—it requires time, patience, and an open mind to change habits and create a positive process in your life.

Amazing session with Adam.Cant believe how it helped me with trauma. I highly recommend
Would highly recommend Adam and Faster Therapy.
I have been suffering from anxiety and emotional trauma for the last several years. Adam is caring, compassionate and genuinely interested in your well-being. He’s explained how your mind works and the processes involved. Over 45 minutes, I was able to let go of the anxiety, pain, negative emotions I had carried around for years. I felt such a release and now feel energised with a positive outlook on my life. The session has helped me and would recommend anyone who has spent years in counselling to give this a try.
I'm very grateful for your prompt and effective therapy, Adam. You have been very attentive and caring throughout the process. thank you..
Adam was really professional and calming. I have been struggling with my own demons for a while especially with my anxiety and prior traumas and Adam is teaching me to let go. As I realised I was pushing all my emotions down and not facing them. After one session I was able to go for a meal with friends. I haven’t been able to do that in months. If you are thinking about having sessions I would definitely do it. Working on yourself before anything else. Adam is really down to earth and is easy to connect with. I felt comfortable from start to finish. Thank you
Amazing service with great aftercare.
Their hypnosis was a game changer and helped in many different areas of life not just smoking.
I’ve was struggling with anxiety and panic attacks working with Adam and Mark has changed my life forever! Highly recommend!
I was quite skeptical before my session with Adam, but after the session for my past anxiety i feel like a weights lifted off my shoulders.
I had a fear of cheese for 20 years , 20 minutes with Adam and I ate cheese for the first time in my life!! Brilliant 👍🏼
Adam was very knowledgable and made me feel comfortable from the start. The hypnotherapy was thorough and worked so well. My anxiety has dramatically improved and this has helped me so much in life!
I couldn’t recommend Adam enough. He’s attentive, talented and truly cares about your well-being. I would recommend him and hypnotherapy in general , as for me I definitely think it’s helped.
