You never know it might have a good placebo effect. Whether you believe it or not the OP is an adult and should be able to decide what to do for themselves. also, tbh when dealing with anxiety or depression or any other mental problem for so long you'll try anything for a chance (even a 0.1% chance) for relief.

Actually 55, hypnosis is a credible treatment for lots of things now a days. Just look it up in any medical journal. It's been very helpful for those with chronic pain. This isn't the type of hypnosis that people usually think of from movies where someone goes around quacking like a duck completely unaware they did that. It's more a form of focusing on something like you're breathing and getting into an extremely calm state. Similar to meditation. And people that are hypnotized are aware of what's happening to them.

I sort of understand what he's being so jealous about, but it's still not acceptable whatsoever. If he loves you, he should care about your mental health and you getting the help you need more than his jealousy.

What is these to be jealous about ? She will go see a person who is supposed to offer medical help ; it is highly unethical for therapists and the like to have a relationship with the people who come to them for health issues...

Of course unethical things happen. By that logic; better not to go a public bathroom by yourself, you might get mugged. Better not see a doctor by yourself, you might get attacked. etc. See how ridiculous that sounds.

I didn't say it wasn't ridiculous; it is. I was just saying I understand it. I can understand why the crazy ex with mental problems murdered her ex-boyfriend; that doesn't mean I agree with it.

Yeah, but they always neglect the pizza! By the end of their interlude they still never even so much as look at the pizza, let alone eat it. I know that I'm usually hungry after a good roll in the hay.

While one might assume this, It sounds like her issues are far more serious than to be the result of a single person she hasn't even been married to yet.

controlling == caring. that's such BS along the lines of "he's just being mean to you because he likes you!" that we've been taught as kids. caring is discussing it like adults and looking at both sides without telling your partner they can't do something.

No, but he wants to go to "make sure she doesn't cheat" while under hypnosis. As you said, if there ARE male therapists who rape women under hypnosis, he cares more about the fact that she'd have another guy's dick in her than the fact she was RAPED. So he's not only a douchebag for "needing to watch over her" for HIS OWN self-interests rather than for HER SAFETY, he's one of those dicks who think rape = cheating.

I highly doubt that's true about hypnotists using hypnosis to rape women. Experiments have shown that hypnosis is not so powerful that it can be used to make someone do something that is totally against their nature and will.

Yes I read the OP. He won't let the OP go on their own. And I'm going to assume the OP found a licensed hypnotherapist and it's kinda fucked up to assume they'd use their power to rape/assault their patients. It maybe happens but it's just an excuse for the BF to control the OP to say he might make her "cheat". Rape has nothing to do with it, and mentioning it to justify the BFs controlling nature is a fucked up tactic.

You know people get raped in their homes as well? Better not let your partner make their own decisions on how to manage their safety, better keep watch 24/7. I'm sure being under constant surveillance from someone who says they love them is much preferable to living a normal, risky life.

#44- I don't know anything about how hypnotism works, so please forgive my ignorance, but wouldn't it be just powerful enough to have OP lay there while she's raped? Like is it a lucid experience or does it make the patient actually be pretty close to unconscious?

Reply

Hypnosis isn't as we've all seen from the movies. You cannot be compelled to do anything you do not want to do and you are aware of what's happening all the time. So if there was a hypnotist raping women, he was just raping women and it had nothing to do with the hypnosis.

That is a last resort treatment for certain illnesses (like the most extreme forms of epilepsy where a person is unable to function despite taking medication) but NOT for anxiety.

Looks like I got downvoted to hell. Well, where I live the shock therapy is used to treat many cases where nothing else works. It isnt that bad from what I've read and I've considered it myself to treat my severe depression.
