    Thumbs up Going to a hypnotherapist

    So I've finally saved up the money (what a barbarity of the capitalist system that people who can't pay, basically don't get any psychological help, and yet clearly the poorer you are the more stressed you are and the more you need it).

    Officially this is going to be about a phobia I have of flying insects (embarrassing, I know), but I think this relates to deeper issues and an obsessive need for control over my "own " space/life/body, which has hindered me in relationships quite seriously, and also in terms of sex. This has made me bitter towards women and exes, especially, which I don't like, as it also goes against my beliefs (I support feminism).

    My mum knows a hypnotherapist and had been nagging me to see her about the phobia, so I am taking the chance!

    I'll use this thread as a kind of blog or some shit when I feel like posting about the issue, but feel glad that I'm finally taking a step to sort my life out! I feel better just from having taken the decision and committed to it.

    I want to go to a hypno-therapist. Not to cure anything, but just to have personal experience of its validity.

    My neighbor is phobic of bugs and it's a problem. She won't come to my door when there's a bug anywhere near it, and in the summer, there's always a bug of some sort -- a moth on my screen, a preying mantis on my window sill -- or she'll ring the bell and then stand away from the door so I can't see who it is out the peep hole -- so I'll be interested to hear whether or not it does any good. If it works, maybe I can talk her into going. She's convinced that bugs have it out for her and they are thinking of doing her harm. She says she can tell by the way they wiggle their "antlers." (She means antennae.)

    She sounds like she also has cognitive problems that go beyond a phobia.:s or is it just in the moment of panic that she says those things, but when she is calm realizes they aren't true?

    Hey this is cool.. I have my assessment with a hypnotherapist tomorrow.
    I though of making a similar thread myself but was bit withdrawn and didn't get around to it yet.

    I am going to mine to help me break down barriers that impede my growth in employment related manners. I have this horrible fear of actually being successful at anything, so I flounder through life taking low key jobs that do not demand I actually use any of my God given gifts.

    The cool thing is.. I don't have to pay a cent for it..
    An employment agency I deal with has received Government funding as pilot project to see if this can benefit people with psychological barriers to finding employment. My case worker referred me almost immediately.

    In contrast, I am on a waiting list to see a cognitive behavior therapist (free of charge) and have been for almost 3 months and I haven't even had an assessment yet. this can take up to 6 months and then another 6 months before you actually begin therapy.. OUCH!!!

    So I find it a bit confounding that I can get Hypnotherapy within 2 weeks (which I consider experimental) and not cognitive therapy (which I consider science) in the same time frame.
    I do not understand why Governments do not see the importance of a psychologically fit population .. As you said .. it's barbabric
