Do you suffer from SAD?

Is the worst time of the year for you when the clocks turn back one hour?

Do you find it difficult to function?

Are you constantly tired?

Do you feel depressed?

Do you crave sunlight?

Perhaps you just want to hibernate and stay indoors eating?

Then you may be suffering from seasonal adjustment disorder but what is SAD?

Seasonal adjustment disorder (SAD) can often also known as winter depression, the winter blues, summer depression, summer blues, or seasonal depression. In the past it was considered a change in mood in which people who have normal healthy mental health throughout most of the year then experience depressive symptoms and physiological ailments in the winter or summer seasons.

However doctors have now labelled this disorder a specifier with seasonal patterns for recurrent major depressive disorder that occurs at a specific time of the year and fully remits during other seasons throughout the year.

About 20% of the UK population suffer mildly debilitating symptoms of SAD that cause discomfort but not serious suffering. This is called sub-syndrome SAD or the winter blues.

For approximately 2% of the UK population however, SAD is a seriously disabling illness which prevents them from functioning normally without the appropriate treatment and affects their lives greatly.

If you’re like most people with seasonal adjustment

Time spent in hypnosis with a professional hypnotherapist has been proved to help. Hypnotherapists look at people as a whole, rather than just treating symptoms. Hypnotherapy for depression works with both the conscious and the subconscious mind in order to help you achieve the results you want.
