I had a session of hypnotherapy a few years ago, but didn't go under... I never went back. Then I read a copy of "Training Trances: Multi-level Communication in Therapy and Training" in October and hallucinated surveilence cameras in my bedroom later that night. It was the beginning of a psychotic episode that lasted over two months. Certainly a powerful tool in the right hands, but I think it can cause problems if it's not done properly. And no I don't consider myself a particularly gullible/easily influenced type of person, yet this happened to me. What they don't tell you on the cover is that the book actually puts you into a trance 'for fun', without forewarning... great, but who is going to pull you out again should you start re-living early trauma, put the book down mid-trance (as I did) and pick up the newspaper, only to find 'hidden messages' and death threats in there? I wish I could sue them for negilence or something. Proving it would be another matter of course.
