According to Albert Ellis model of Rational Emotive Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (RECBT) depression is identified as the unhealthy emotion which partners up with its healthy counterpart, the emotion of sadness.
Hypnotherapy can contribute to the integration and assimilation of positive, healthy beliefs into the subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy will promote the practice of techniques belonging to different fields of psychology, such as psycho dynamic, behavioural and cognitive behavioural, from an altered state of consciousness known as hypnotic state, a state of concentrated attention and/or deep relaxation where an increased access to the subconscious mind can be achieved.
