British comedian Jack Dee recently discussed in The Daily Telegraph about how he overcame depression using hypnotherapy. “I was on various anti-depressants, but not for long – I didn’t function very well on them. I felt sort of flattened out. Plus I found another way…” He trails off. And that was? “Hypnotherapy.”
Hang on. Airy-fairy hypnotherapy? “It’s very good. I mean it’s only really talking. I always think of it as being a bit like a brain massage. It just sort of resets you. Sometimes you have to switch the computer on and turn it back off again. I try and do it once a month and no more, because you can end up depending on things. I don’t want to come off stage and think I did a good gig just because I was wearing red socks. Life would become intolerable.”
I love the idea of hypnotherapy being a “brain massage” and, effectively, that’s what it is. When I work with my clients we always deal with the essential work first and then we get to the optional stage which, of course, is optional. A once a month visit falls in to that category, optional, but the benefits can be tremendous.
If you want to invest in yourself for a change, give me a call.
