The program was Dateline, I saw it, too. I have done guided imagery which is similar to hypnosis in that the brain takes in positive and guiding messages which sink into the subconscious. I visualize myself in a safe place, seeing good things happen for me, seeing myself as a better person.

My therapist does guided imagery with me, and has recommended a bunch of CDs. She really believes in it.

My husband has had hypnosis and he says if you keep listening to the tapes it absolutely works. He did it for concentration, keep his mind from wandering taking tests, etc. It worked for exam "anxiety." The guy on Dateline admitted he stopped listening to his tapes. You have to keep listening, you can't just stop and expect it to stick.

I have social anxiety, so I know how maddening it is for your heart to start pounding for no obvious reason. I think guided imagery helps me, not turn anixety into panic.

I am on meds, which I know help, but meds aren't the cure all for me.
