Yesterday I had the first session of hypnotherapy, I was a little apprehensive when I first arrived, but was soon put at ease. He talked through my history and the things that were giving me problems, he then explained what was happening in my mind and how he thought he could help.
Next came the let’s see how you respond bit. He made me relax and put me ‘under’ (I am not sure of the correct word as trance and sleep seem to strong) I was totally aware of everything he was saying and doing, I knew I could just open my eyes and be back in total control.
He then put me back under and talked to my sub-conscious, it seems a little strange as he does it, but there was a lot of logic in what he was saying.
Although this was the first session I am sure I feel different, getting changed for bed last night did not bring on the usual sit on the bed and gasp for breath, and this morning things seem easier to control.
So I look forward to next session, and to those thinking of trying it don’t be afraid, you are in control at all times.
