Hi there am just wondering what others experiences are with counselling and hypnotherapy? I've been in counselling for over a year,I changed to a new counsellor in September as I started to train as a counsellor myself but have had to pull out because my anxiety became unbearable for various reasons. I'm not really seeing any benefits from counselling,Infact I think I'm getting worse. I saw a hypnotherapist a couple of years ago after my mum died and I got good results quite quickly,however I do think you need topping up in hypnotherapy and probably counselling too as it is easy to get dragged back to your old way of thinking. I can't afford to see a counsellor and a hypnotherapist and am wondering whether to have a break from counselling and try the hypnotherapy which is pretty expensive but seems to work quicker. What have others experience been?
