Our expert says:
No. I VERY STRONGLY do NOT recommend any form of hypnotherapy or psychoanalysis for any form of depression, and specially not for the form you describe. Psychoanalysis is worthless, highly expensive, takes forever, and there isn't a single shred of good scientific / research evidence that it is useful in treating ANTHING at all. And while hypnosis can be used occasionally by a skilled shrink as PART of the plan for treating various conditions, on its own it is NOT the treatment recommended by ANY neutral and expert body for treating Depression or much else.
As Maria says, hypnos has a very high risk of inducing false memories of events that actually never happened, to compound your real problems, Any competent GENERAL psychotherapist or counsellor, especially one using CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) methods, for which there's piles of good evidence that it works and has lasting benefits and doesn't take forever, should be able to really help you. And, excellently, CBT develops your own skills and strengths to handle this and any later crisis in life, rather than making you dependent on the therapist as such
