Should I try hypnotherapy??


I have tried just about everything to get rid of my social phobia and deep depression but without any success. The only thing I haven't tried yet is hypnotherapy, but before i dive in head first I thought i would ask on this forum if anyone has tried it, if it helped them and what is the experience like?

Ive got a consultation on Tuesday with a Hypnotherapist if it goes ok i'll be booking 3 sessions with him to try and make my SA better.

I'll keep you updated with how it goes.

I think you should try everything. Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, positive thinking... Hit SA from every direction.

I've never seen a therapist but I self-hypnotize myself every now and then.

This e-book helped me get the basics down.

Thumbs up

I want to try this. I've used relaxation tapes and CD's in the past (including self-hypnosis CD's), but would like to finally have at least one session with someone who might be able to help me.

Thought about hypno-therapy and agree with Strong Silent Type ' hit SA from all angles'.

Currently trying auto-negating system and having good results. Hopefully 2010 will be a breakthrough year for me!!

What is involved with auto-negating Aitch? I am always a bit dubious about these sorts of things. How long have you been doing this and what sort of progress have you made? What changes have you seen?
