Hi I haven't posted or been active in ages as I've been having a really rough patch lately and felt it was unfair to take anyone else down with me, but I was hoping to ask a general question, which I apologize in advance if it has already been touched on before but...

Has anyone here tried hypnotherapy or know anyone that has used it for treating panic attacks, agoraphobia, depression etc?
It's something I have very briefly considered over the years but never really been tempted to try - but today after a bad experience today my riding instructor suggested it is something that might help me. She's found it successful for treating her own phobia but I can't imagine anything ever helping me to combat this. I know that is most likely the condition talking but just wondered of anyone else's experiences?

Thanks :o)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, between changing to a new computer and things going downhill in RL live journal got put to the bottom of the list.

I haven't started hypnotherapy yet. I'm still not sure what I want to do but I think probably I would like to give it a go only because I will regret it if I don't. Because of how things are right now though I'm going to leave it until I feel more ready.
I know that sounds ridiculous as the whole idea is going there to try and alleviate my anxiety but I really feel I need to have a certain amount of stability in my life to be able to make that next step.

Thank you for the information and for sharing your own experiences with it :)
