George P. Glaser, LCSW is a psychotherapist providing treatment for depression for individuals in Austin, Texas. As a psychotherapist, Mr. Glaser is able to utilize various psychotherapeutic techniques to help someone deal with depression. These include, but are not limited to, clinical hypnosis and cognitive behavioral approaches, which are used to help a patient overcome mental imbalances causing or escalating a depressed mood.
Depression is a real illness that affects more than 17 million adults in the US each year. This treatable condition can cause internal suffering, relationship issues, loss of productivity, and family problems. The difference between depression and occasional sadness is that the former involves a depressed mood lasting for more than two weeks. Depressed individuals feel hopeless and begin to isolate themselves from loved ones, while some individuals even have thoughts of suicide. Other indicators of depression are a lack of desire to stick with a regular routine or being exhausted and overwhelmed with life.
As a clinical social worker, George Glaser is qualified to treat depression. He may use hypnotherapy as a technique to help work through the various issues causing depression. The first level of treatment involves identifying the patient’s problems that are contributing to their depressed feelings. George may work with clients to identify negative or unbalanced patterns of thinking, such as over generalizing or negative attitudes. He can also help an individual by developing new ways to understand life or interact with others. In general, Mr. Glaser’s varied training as a psychotherapist helps clients regain pleasure and a sense of control in their life.
Individuals searching for a professional to treat depression want to work with a trained expert. While there are plenty of people who offer hypnosis, only those with an educational and professional background in mental and behavioral health fields should be used. For example, most therapists that specialize in hypnosis do not train exclusively as a hypnotist, but have professional degrees in social work, psychology, counseling, medicine, nursing and dentistry.
