I had hypnotherapy as treatment for migraine headaches when I was quite young - 12 years of age. He used some regression with me in order to get me to a comfortable spot in my memory where I wasn't experiencing any pain, and then it was really mindfulness techniques in trying to take my mind back to that happy, pain free place whenever I'd get a headache. Which, at that age, was several times a week.

At the time, we were trying everything to combat them. It's only now, 33 years on, when I'm doing daily meditation as a practice to combat anxiety, that I find that I use the very same techniques and self soothe when I'm feeling anxious.

That was my experience with it, anyway. Nothing at all to do with the therapeutic process. Sorry...
