Anyone had any experience with hypnotherapy?

just been to my first hypnotherapy session to help resolve some long standing anger issues. not sure what to make of it as was probably expecting something completely different. don't know whether the session had much effect or not or whether i'll see improvements in my future behaviour.

anyone else had hypnotherapy done on them and what were your feelings about it?

    Been both a client, and practiced as a hypnotherapist

    Its not the 'magic' cure some make it out to be, but it certainly can be useful, especially with a therapist with a good grounding in more general techniques of cognitive- and psycho- therapy

    hmmm think that's where i went wrong. this therapist had alot of experience and practiced several other alternative therapies as well such as acupuncture, nlp etc but think would've preferred someone trained in cognitive and psycho-therapy.

    this guy just did alot of tapping on my ankle and i don't really feel i got to the bottom of the issues. would it be worth seeing someone else?

    had some success with helping my fear of heights using hypnosis and although it definitely works i would say a good hypnotherapist really makes a lot of difference

    Stopped smoking for ages (until a drunken bet put paid to that) after hypnotherapy.

    Mate had the same hypnotherapist for a session in being more confident in life and he went from quite quiet to an obnoxiously gobby sh1t. Lol.

    Want to go to have a session to encourage me to study harder.

    I rate the bloke I see though I didn't half feel tired after seeing him - wonder if he slipped me a Roofie.

    It really does depend on how much you want to change and how much you want to attribute that to the hypnotherapist.  It is only suggestion at the end of the day, but people who are susceptible to it can get good results.

    I have been to see a hynotherapist before.... was a strange time... saw them for 5-6 weeks, and I couldnt continue

    There are 2 types of hynotherapy though

    1. suggestive - i.e the therapist telling you things i.e you will stop smoking etc etc'
    2. Pure Hypnoalysis (or something - where the issue is deeper and they put you in a relaxed state and fish for info from within

    Mine was the 2nd one, I told my therapist things I never told anyone else, so yeah I beleive it partially works, but I chose t stop things for my own reasons
