Ken's story-hypnotherapy for depression

“You know your stuff Terri and I sincerely mean that. You are incredibly professional and warm at the same time. It was easy to trust you and that allowed me to make the needed changes.  You have my utmost respect.” Ken. T Edmonton

Ken is a 63-year-old, divorced man who recently retired from a senior management position. He has three grown children and several grandchildren. Ken suspects that he has battled depression on and off for most his life. Despite periods of depression he had a very successful career in the oil and gas industry. He retired early with physical health issues and found himself having challenges with the forging a new identity outside of work.

Ken describes his family of origin as being rife with conflict. His mother and two siblings were both hospitalized for depression and his father had a series of affairs. Ken was the eldest child of a large farming family and was expected to take over the family business. Instead he left home after high school and without his parents blessing or financial support pursued a MBA.  During his years at university he had little contact with his family. During this time, he felt “driven” to prove himself.

After university Ken married a woman he described as being difficult and demanding. The couple divorced soon after the third child was born. During the following years, he focused on his career and had little contact with his children. His involvement grew somewhat once they were in their teens.

Ken requested support with transitioning to retirement and to making changes in his relationships with his now adult children. He also felt a strong desire to become a part of his grandchildren’s lives but was at a loss.

Ken was eager to complete success planning and was an excellent candidate for this work. He was extremely motivated to shift beliefs and participated with action plans. Regression aided him in exploring the ways of being he had allowed to cement over time and provided him with the power to begin creating a new identity. He sees himself as having potential to play an important role in the lives of his children and grandchildren and he is systematically “mending fences” with his children and creating new positive memories with his grandchildren. In addition to addressing family issues Ken made good use of several instruments that offered him insight into personal values and strengths and is now active in several community organizations.

The majority of individuals who access services at Hypnosis for Life have, at one time or another made good use of: 1) traditional clinical psychology services  2) medication  3) community counselling, 12 step programs and/or treatment centers.

These options provide initial needed relief, however, relapse is common. Challenges tend to re-occur until the subconscious mind has fully accepted and absorbed new paths of least resistance.
