Well I tried Hypnotherapy as a cure for my anxiety. I attended 3 sessions before deciding that it wasn't for me. I have tried medication, CBT and have read about anxiety. I thought I would give hypnotherapy a try. I expected that the treatment would somehow get into my subconscious mind and reprogram my thoughts around my cause of anxiety. Well I was dissapointed, the treatment consisted of a 1 hour talk to understand my problem, then I was given an audio track to help me relax, the track was similair to ones I had already. Then there was a follow up 1 hour session, once again mostly taking about my anxiety and given a different audio track to listen to in my spare time. The third 1 hour session I asked for Hypnosis. the therapist recited the same relaxation words to me from the track.. I did not go into any trance. the only benefit I gained was to think about my anxiety from a different perpective but was it worth the £200 ? Personally I did not think so and I did not learn anything new having read the books I already new what anxiety was.
I am happy to discuss further if anyone is thinking of booking hypnothrapy.
