I was wondering what /adv/ thinks about hypnotherapy. I was recently advised to visit one, I always thought they were bull, but hey, I'm just a fag.

So /adv/, what do you think? Is it worth? Is it even real?

>Is it even real.
Yes, but in a different way from what you might envision.
>Is it worth?
That... entirely depends on you. Hypnosis should be a state of trance defined by a precise heart rate and brain activity; it's meant to soothe and relax. Most patients can't achieve that, because they're unconsciously scared of the hypnosis concept. Yes, the parameters might lower a little - but you'd get better results handing them a cold drink and a soft armchair.

>Hypnotherapy
Also, that's not enough. What are they using hypnosis for? What is the main goal of the treatment? Are they trying to alleviate depression, memory loss, or...?

I take meds for anxiety and depression and whatnot and see a psychologist. In a more detailed way, it goes around having will to do things and all that nihilism crap. Sorry for the shitty info.

You're not obliged to disclose information you don't feel like disclosing.

It's actually a pretty common treatment but... did they just spring it on you? They should do a check-up session first in which they monitor your heart rate and brain activity (nothing invasive/painful) to determine whether or not they can use it on you with benefits or not

no, someone who has similar problems suggested it to me and that was it. I'm willing to do anything honestly. As for a competent professional, I don't know, I guess I'm trying it out to search one. thanks for the info

Oh, ok, no problem.

Yes, sometimes it helps. Depends on the issue and the patients - it's situational.

Let me debunk common myths.

>he can make me do/say things against my will.
Not really. At the end of the day, your brain can't be bypassed. I can't make you lie, I can't convince you you're a chicken.
>he can "make me new memories", make me "remember" things I actually never did
Nope.
>he can help me regain lost memories
Nope. Hypnosis works on the conscious, actually. It can't retrieve what never was.
>it's not science
Hypnosis is a tool, just like a ruler. I can use it to measure length or to pretend I'm sword-fighting.

Thought it was possible. Anyway, thanks a lot anon, your contribution was spectacular. You make /adv/ worth, no homo.
