    I do NOT have paranoid schiophrenia - Hypnosis made me say it LOL

    I strongly believe that I was hypnotised to say that, or classical conditioning was used on me. Hypnosis can make people say or do things they don't want to say or do. It is also called Mind Control. So that is hypnosis or substances or both.

    Dream. Could mean something. Advice? (May be disturbing) help me

    Hypnosis for depression?

    Apologies if this has been asked recently, but has anyone had any success with hypnosis for depression? I'm most interested in hypnosis as a way of giving yourself "amnesia" (if possible) as a way of forcing yourself to forget certain bad memories, or repress them, whatever. Most of my problems...

    When I was in High School, we had a senior all night party with a hypnotist, and other activities. I was very curious to see if hypnosis really worked, so when I moved in with Bobby(my ex-boyfriend in 1991), we were smoking some pot, and I asked him to hypnotise me. So he did. I thought he...

    Please see other article, about being hypnotised in a mental institution. http://www.mentalhealthforum.net/forum/thread103815.html Father says 'Eat some food'. Was I under hypnotic suggestion. I decided to eat Weetabix instead of my mothers food. I told my father I noticed that when I eat...

    Hypnotherapy for helping with depression

    Hi everyone, Feeling a bit better at the moment after a few days this week buried under the duvet feeling well and truly sorry for myself. I just wondered if anyone else has tried hypnotherapy to help with depression. I've been seeing a therapist for the last 6 months or so and I have hypnosis...

    Just wondered if anyone had tried this and if it had any effect. Ive heard about it conquering smoking and fears and phobias plus making people act like fools on stage, but wondered if it could help with depression or low self esteem. It seems logical that it should if in other circumstances...
