Coping Styles - So for some people  they use a coping style  by avoidance thinking  - that is the problem will go away if one does nothing.  The other is Ruminative style ( Ruminator)-  this is  your conversation  or thinking - self talk - going in circles - talking  about things on the same topic around, around and around thus preventing taking any sort of action. We all know of someone that talks and talks about the same thing over and over and over thinking too much and too deeply. Ruminators often don't release their thinking issue - in that they have difficulty in knowing how to take action. By ruminating  they believe they are searching for answers  and are seeking  usually for someone to listen - however no action is taken . For these people life does not move on they feel stuck quite often on  issues of the past. For some  people  they need strategies to  manage situation  - learning to take action  and learning to define personal boundaries thereby  building up momentum for future possibilities. For some -  Hypnotherapy encourages and benefits clearer thinking and behavioral flexibility and emotional self regulation thereby building momentum in moving forwards

Solution focus therapy with Hypnotherapy  is recommended  to introduce skills in managing personal situations better . Hypnosis assists untangling the clutter in your mind then allow you to make clearer choice in your life. For some, individual therapy is a vehicle  for an individual to be heard. At least half the people seeking help for depression are also suffering marital distress and at least half the couples seeking marital therapy have at least  one depressed partner ( Michael Yapko).
