Pros: Relaxing
Cons: Needed topped up on a regular basis

I underwent hypnosis for issues I had with food. I wasn't quite bulimic but had control issues. The hypnotherapy was a godsend at the time, helping me focus on the reasons not to do the behaviours without being judgemental in any way. My therapist was excellent. The only drawback was that the effects needed to be topped up regularly or it began to lose effectiveness. I think this would be good combined with other therapies.

Pros: none
Cons: didn't work for me

I have a terrible phobia of bugs. I tried hypnotherapy several times, unsuccessfully. I am especially phobic of crickets (even though I KNOW they can not hurt me & are completely harmless)and during my sessions I remember my doctor repeating, "crickets can not hurt you, every time you see one, think of Jiminy Cricket". While under hypnosis I remember thinking, "Yea, right, Jiminy Cricket my ass. Those nasty things don't sing and aren't wearing a top hat with a cane"!!!

Pros: no side effects
Cons: didn't seem to work

I underwent hypnotherapy for depression. I'm not saying it wouldn't work for some people, but it didn't do a thing for me. There were times I burst out into laughter because the language the hypnotherapist used was so silly and, often times, she wording that was not logical (an elevator going down started at 1 and went to 10). She said that it wouldn't work on me because of how my brain worked. Like I said, maybe it will work for others, but I wouldn't waste the time or money unless this is your last resort.
