This podcast is the narrated version of my article Should Hypnosis Ever Be Used to Treat Depression?.
The symptoms of depression and characteristics of a hypnotized subject share some similarities. This causes hypnosis to resonate strongly with depressed patients, and it can be an effective healing tool if used in the right way.
In this episode I talk about:
- Unquestioned Authority
- Depression is already a sort of hypnosis
- Two common features of depression and hypnosis
- More of the same misery
- Using trance to treat trance

- Sigmund Freud initially believed that reports of childhood sexual abuse from patients were genuine but then abandoned this ‘seduction theory’ in favour of believing that abuse memories must be infantile fantasy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freud%27s_seduction_theory
