My Experience With Hypnotherapy

Last year, after a couple years of putting it off, I decided it was time to at least try some sort of therapy to see if it would do anything.

Let me tell you, it was not what I expected.

But in a good way. I didn't understand, and still don't, how it works but it really did. It was during lockdown so everything was done over Zoom which made me think it might not be as effective but luckily this wasn't the case.

She told me how to set up my desk and computer to make it as comfortable as possible. And after a few pointers, we dove into it.

I was convinced that I couldn't be "hypnotized". Boy was I wrong.

After a few minutes, my body started feeling kinda tingly. And then I was so relaxed it felt like I was in the middle of a nap. But at the same time, I could still hear what she was saying and could react to things she would tell me to do.

Since you're supposed to keep your eyes closed, I was starting to vividly envision what she was talking about and telling me to think about. Other than that I don't really remember anything else from it.

But afterwards, I felt like a new person. Like I'd been taking a nap for years and woke up fully energized. It was the weirdest thing. Not only that, but whatever issues I was going through at the time felt nonexistent. Not that they were just magically gone, but like they didn't matter in the big picture of life.

Just based on my one experience with one hypnotherapist, I would recommend at least giving it a try if you've thought about therapy.
