Has anyone tried hypnotherapy? I'm thinking about going to a hypnotist to overcome lack of confidence and shyness. This has always been an issue for me, but some of the things that have happened over the past couple of years really wiped out what little confidence I had...Long story short, when my husband was diagnosed with schizophrenia, the medical bills left us broke, homeless, and pretty wrecked emotionally. I've been working my way back to making a normal life for us, but I have to do a lot better. I tried therapy many years ago, but it felt like a big waste of time. I've read about people benefiting from hypnosis for smoking cessation, anxiety, etc. My only reservation is the idea of someone messing with my head! Have you tried it? Would you try it?
