Maybe I could use hypnotherapy to find out what happened to the part of my personality associated with culture and the arts. It would be cool to care about and appreciate Shakespeare, wine, theater, classical music, modern art, any type of design or fashion, and all the other things normal adults seem to appreciate.
I guess, because theoretically, hypnotherapy could help with anything...but that's a little... I don't know. "Out there," I guess.
As usual, I actually want to help this person Deadboy (@fetalfreak). (Remember Xain? Big waste.) But I am assuming that if Deadboy has suffered severe anxiety for many years, and has tried various prescription meds without relief, then watching a video with the Dalai Lama, going jogging or listening to music isn’t really going to help him.
I suggest hypnotherapy because I want people to know it is a real treatment that should be taken seriously. I have recently explored it and wished I had, many years earlier.
The thing about anxiety is that your neurological system can get “stuck” in an overly-active state. This can happen from trauma, from tapering off medications, all sorts of things.
And the flight-or-flight feeling is uncontrollable, because your subconscious mind is in a loop with it.
The type of hypnotherapy I am talking about isn’t about exploring past lives, or becoming more appreciative of fine art. It is leaning to consciously lower your physical and mental systems of panic.
