I went to a therapist today. I said I wanted CBT. So she explains that, well, yes, she *could* do CBT if I really want it, "because you're the boss", but that her specialty is actually hypnotherapy.

Where it all started going south was when she told me some of her clients regress right back into their previous lives under hypnosis...

She started talking about the three types of memory: memories stored in your brain, memories stored in your cells, and memories stored in your spirit.

According to her, cancer happens when bad memories are stored in your cells, and those cells then become tumorous...

Personally I don't agree with many of her views, and I prefer evidence based medicine.

Plus I feel uncomfortable about surrendering control of my mind to a stranger. Weren't there stories about therapists raping their patients while under hypnosis?

So I'm wondering whether I should go back to her, or find a new therapist.
