    I can't recommend anyone but I went from 40 fags a day to none after one 55 minute hynotherapy session ion 1993.

    As someone who has trained in hypnotherapy after realising I could hypnotise myself, I can offer you some advice.

    I would suggest that self hypnosis is more effective, more beneficial and less stressful on the pocket that going to a hypnotherapist (this is a moneysaving forum)

    Just have a look on the Internet. You can learn to do it yourself without any difficulty. Think of daydreaming (trance) then learn to give yourself positive suggestions while in that daydream (trance) Thta's all there is to it.

    Sounds interesting, will definitely look at that. Other thing I had thought was to find out who trains people and offer to be a patient for a student.

    Or just buy a tape or dvd. Think about it, if you are lying down with your eyes closed what is the difference to listening to a person beside you and listening to the same person on a tape? None, and you can replay it again and again. :)
  • I tried it for fear of flying (three sessions), also CBT, but still too scared to get on a plane.
  • I have a fear of hypodermic needles and considering hypnotherapy to at least lessen the major panic attack I have when I hear injections being discussed. Just wanted to offer my support for the OP and hope it goes well!

    The best way to learn self-hypnosis is to go for a couple of paid sessions with a good hypnotist.

    Depends on the individual, many people have taught themselves, because it is so easy.
    Which way is better is a matter of opinion.
