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.
Wtf is wrong with you people? You do know that there has been cases of people using hypnosis to rape women? I created an fml accout just for this post. To overbearing? How about you know he loves you. Maybe he did not say it the best way but be glad he cares enough to say something
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.
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.
Not sure if this is a possibility to you, but one thing you could try besides hypnosis is electric shock therapy.
