It is always great to read about people in the public eye who have benefited from hypnotherapy. It all helps to counteract some of the presumptions that people may understandably hold. We have all seen the sensational storylines in TV detective programmes, where the villain hypnotises some poor unsuspecting member of the public to commit some dastardly crime, or seen the stage shows where people do unspeakable things as they are ‘controlled’ by the hypnotist.
So – how refreshing to see this interview with Jack Dee in Monday’s Daily Telegraph:
In Bryony Gordon’s article, Jack describes how he had suffered from depression and how after having been on various anti-depressants, he had found “another way” – that being hypnotherapy.
Jack says in the article “I always think of it as being a bit of a brain massage. It just sort of resets you. Sometimes you have to switch off and turn it back on again….”.
Those of us who are practitioners are also very aware of how hypnotherapy benefits us too. Sometimes, as we become aware of our own obstacles or limiting beliefs, and when we realise we are not performing at our best, there is nothing better than seeing a colleague for a bit of a ‘reset’!
