Hmm well it seemed a bit unprofessional or something. The boundaries weren't that clear and there wasn't much in the way of follow up. For me, it was bringing up some pretty deep issues but then the woman who was doing it, I'm not sure she really knew how to help me then deal with what surfaced. I don't think she had a lot of training as a therapist. I think having a safe 'holding environment' is important if you're going to be trying to dredge up or access the unconscious, especially if you have history of trauma. I just realized I wrote all this and you might just be wanting it to try it to quit smoking or something.

I used hypnosis and it worked for a while for very bad social anxiety. But noticed other issues started to surface. Example I no longer had the original symptoms but developed other illnesses that I'd previously not had.
I became a licensed Hypnotherapist and once I did a regression to the root cause of the anxiety and came up with the solution under and released correctly I haven't had it since.
So Hypnosis does work if you find a qualified Hypnotherapist who can properly take you thru all the steps. I'd suggest you also find one who believes in the mind/body connection and who can show you how to release the anxiety should you have a panic attack.
Just my .02 cents.

Didn't Really Work For Me


I tried hypnotherapy about 10 years ago and didn't have much success with it. I would feel relaxed during the sessions but really didn't notice any changes in my daily life.
