Depression

There is a lot of evidence that depression can be efficiently treated using approaches such at cognitive-behaviour therapy (Beck & Alford, 2009). Hypnosis is not a treatment in its own right but is is argued that it can be effectively incorporated with approaches such as CBT (cognitive hypnotherapy: Lynn, 2010) or psychodynamic therapy (hypnoanalysis). There is accumulating evidence that programmes incorporating hypnosis can be used to treat depression.
