It’s a strange feeling isn’t it? To be so completely pulled in, so completely shocked and saddened at the death of someone you’ve never even met.
And yet, here we are. The death of comedian Robin Williams shocks and touches all of us. He’s not a member of our family, he’s not a personal friend and yet we mourn.
By all accounts he suffered from severe depression. Presumably, he was seeking treatment. He’d tried self-medicating with drugs and alcohol. Makes you wonder what thoughts tormented dear Robin to the point of thinking that suicide would be better than living another day.
As a hypnotherapist I wish he would have sought some hypnotherapy to boost and speed along his clinical treatment for depression. Hypnosis can be an amazing tool to help patients in treatment for depression break through plateaus and quickly resolve some of the underlying issues.
For someone as severely depressed as Robin Williams is described to have been, hypnosis would not be a standalone treatment but rather, an adjunct therapy to smooth and speed the treatment of depression alongside a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. Feeling calm and hopeful with hypnosis between doctor visits can be like a lifeline for the suffering.
