Re: Hypnosis and add and depression.

I have used hypnosis to treat my GAD and depression. I have had good results. I never used to treat my ADD

Re: Hypnosis and add and depression.

That sounds fascinating! I had a weird reaction the first time I saw a photo of Machu Picchu in Peru. Felt like I'd been there before, like I knew that place.

Re: Hypnosis and add and depression.

Has hypnosis worked well for you, excel?

What form does the hypnosis take -- what does a session look like for you?

Re: Hypnosis and add and depression.

Hypnosis has worked well for my anxiety. It's been a long time since I have used it.
