I noticed this thread was from a while ago, did you give it a go and if so did it help out? I'm very interested in hypnosis. I read this on a site about hypnosis: Hypnotherapy has been a great help in improving: Exam performance, Study Recall, Memory, Sports Focus, Public Speaking, Personal Growth, Pain Control, Performace, Assertiveness, Childbirth, Communication, Relaxation, Counselling, Confidence, Releasing the Past, Personal Power, Goal Setting.
Sounds very promising!! It probabaly costs a fortune but I'd be willing to give a few sessions a go!
