Interesting approach to ridding yourself of SA! Let us know how it goes.

Yeah, it was for me too. I had four one-hour individual office sessions with a therapist who claimed to treat SA (among other things) using hypnosis. Each session was basically fifty-five minutes of talk therapy followed by five-minutes of the therapist having me look into a spinning black-and-white spiral wheel. The therapist told me that it was just supposed to induce a state of relaxation and that she couldn't make me do or say anything against my will, but I felt like I could have just got up and walked out of her office - and would have been better off doing so. So, I stopped going. Maybe, she just wasn't a good therapist/hypnotist, but I wasn't about to spend more money looking for a better one.Daydreambeliever said:
I read this book last year. I thought there was just too much theory before I actually got to the actual self-hypnotizing. In any case the book didn't really help me. I hated the thought of having to read the same transcript over and over again myself. I'd rather listen over and over again to someone's soothing voice doing that.porcelainfaery said:I also ordered another hypnosis book called How to Hypnotize Yourself with Your Eyes Open, i'm going to try that also.
It was $70 for a session and it didn't work at all. In all fairness though, medications have, for the most part, been a waste of money for me too because they haven't worked either. I don't want to deter others from trying things though, there isn't one thing that works for everyone. SA doesn't have one clear, easy solution, everyone has to seek out the method that works best for them. For me, working with a therapist has been the most helpful.Maike said:How so, im curious?Daydreambeliever said:
