The true causes of depression can be very varied. From circumstances to something deep within the client. Today we have a new breakthrough in helping people with these traumas from their past. A Havening practitioner is able to quickly, within a couple of sessions, remove the emotional charge from these memories. Doing this often results in the person no longer having episodes of depression. Without this treatment, people can easily remain depressed for a lifetime!

Imagine you are living in a house and an earthquake destroys the house, your car gets struck by lightning and you loose a limb. You are then rushed to hospital and your doctors are able to operate to save your limb. Yet, your house is still destroyed and you are left with a fear of what might happen to you if you attempt to go through the necessary operations to rebuild your house.

This is the case with what is called a post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. Those who suffer such events experience a fear of what might happen if they did attempt to rebuild the house. Yet, even though they suffer this type of event, they will no longer suffer the typical symptoms of depression such as fatigue, lack of motivation, sleep difficulties, anxiety and panic attacks.

They will now only experience symptoms of PTSD, such as anxiety and nightmares. The good news is that they can now learn how to cope with this condition and move on with their lives. The bad news is that they are now more likely to have such episodes and become more prone to this condition in the future.

The true causes of depression are varied and can run the gamut from issues such as a bereavement or divorce, stressful events such as military service, a mental health issue, an eating disorder, alcohol or drug abuse issue, an unresolved past issue and poor coping skills. It is essential to learn how to cope with depression so that you can prevent this condition from destroying your life and the life of your family member or loved one.

What causes depression?

The causes of depression is not entirely clear. This is partly due to the fact that when you have depression, there are multiple chemical changes in your brain, which makes it difficult to isolate a particular cause. Even so, it is clear that there are factors that influence whether you suffer depression or not.

It is thought that there are three factors that are known to contribute to depression in a person, namely:

  1. Genetics – a genetic factor that impacts on depression can be brought about by a single gene that results in an individual being affected.
  2. Stress – exposure to stressful events such as the death of a loved one or a break up of a relationship has been known to cause depression.
  3. Internalising/externalising – there are numerous studies showing that individuals who have a tendency to internalise and the other way round are more susceptible to depression. This can be brought about by environmental influences such as bullying as a youngster or a difficult relationship in life.

How do you deal with depression?

To cope with depression, it is essential that you identify the factors that contribute to it, so that you can learn how to avoid or reduce the impact of each one. Besides identifying these factors, you must also identify ways of being more resilient in the face of such factors, so that the effects of the factor that you identified cannot cause further damage to your mental health.
