My first experience with hypnosis while working as a psychologist. I certified in Clinical Hypnosis, with 40 years of experience. During my first year working as a Registered Psychologist at an Auckland Hospital, I was referred a young anorexic lady who must have been only a few months away from dying as a result of her severe condition.
As a psychologist I thought that there is nothing in my training that is going to help this young lady – her condition is critical.
Having just researched Hypnosis while completing my Master’s Degree in Psychology I decided to give hypnosis a try. Fortunately, she responded to hypnosis and I was able to put the brakes on her rapidly deteriorating condition. From there, I was able to use a combination of Hypnosis and Cognitive – Behavioural strategies to help her overcome the disorder.
