In the U. S., Dr. Gabor accepts clients diagnosed with depression only by referral from their psychiatrists or psychotherapists. From the hypnotherapy perspective, depression is the result of operating from disempowering, negatively-oriented and fear-based belief systems, at the conscious and the subconscious levels of the mind. Depression implies the devaluation of the self. Thus, people with depression don’t recognize their own value anymore, lack self-confidence, self-esteem and self-love, and most of them have lost hope. They don’t feel love anymore.
Depression is a spiritual crisis” according to psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, MD.
Most of the times, depression is associated with loss of interest, sleep disturbances, unpleasant dreams or nightmares, fatigue, weight changes, agitation, lack of concentration, low sex drive, headaches and various levels of anxiety. Clients with depression need to be reminded of the benefits of positive thinking and that we create our life and physiology with our thoughts and beliefs.
Studies show that the way we think determines what we feel and influences our health. Thinking pleasant, optimistic and happy thoughts causes the body to release endorphins and dopamine, the so-called “happiness hormones,” which determine a state of well-being. At the same time, the number of the immune system cells increases and the human body becomes more resistant to diseases. The state of meditation or self-hypnosis has the same effects. When we think negative thoughts, the brain produces catecholamines, the “fight-or-flight hormones” or “stress hormones,” and we feel accordingly. The number of the immune system cells decreases below normal limits, causing a lower resistance to diseases.
If a person is depressed, he or she needs to become extremely serious in redirecting their thinking toward positivity, including the subconscious thinking. The highest rate of suicide is due to untreated depression. Our overall mental health is affected by our programs of thinking, and what meaning we give to the circumstances and events that occur in our life (how we interpret them). The disempowering and negatively-oriented thoughts that lead to depression and insomnia have reached deeply in the subconscious mind, but they can be optimized by supplying positive suggestions in hypnosis, and thus support the mind and brain in creating new neuronal pathways of thinking.
The mind and the brain have the ability to incorporate new information and discard the old, disempowering ideas. This property is called neuroplasticity or cortical remapping. Hypnotherapy helps the subconscious mind learn new healthy beliefs and create new pathways of thinking in order to interpret life’s events in a more empowering, optimistic,  positive and realistic way.

Dr. Gabor’s Medical Hypnotherapy program for overcoming depression benefits clients by activating the mind-body healing mechanisms, optimizing the conscious and subconscious thinking for redirecting the thinking process toward positivity and optimism, and creating a state of inner peace and balance. Clients learn that they can choose to think positive thoughts and replace the disempowering beliefs, taking full responsibility for the way we think and feel. This powerful program helps Dr. Gabor’s clients rapidly reach a positive and empowering mental state and a balanced emotional state.
When people suffer from depression, the critical and negatively-oriented part of your mind—the negative ego—is very strong, and convinces them that it’s impossible to change anything, and that it’s foolish to even think positive and optimistic thoughts. The fastest way to truly come out of depression, which is a result of operating from disempowering programs of thinking, is through embracing positive, realistic thinking.”
