Has anyone ever gone to see a hypnotherapist to try and cure a fear?If so, did it work and how much did it cost?

In order, Yes, No and far too much. Absolute complete waste of time and money, would not recommend whatsoever. I've been to 3, you'd think I'd have learned after the first time, but no. Felt like a fool 2 times over. However - that's just my experience, you might get some positive responses.

Not for a phobia but for something else. It cost €125 for 1.5hrs one-to-one and a complete rip-off. I went to three sessions and stopped wasting my money after that.

I went for a bad phobia, it totally worked and cost me about £600 (it was a few years ago)

Well for me there are a number of issues being addressed. I chatted with the therapist for over an hour before under going for my 1st session. He is basically promoting positive thoughts of motivation (of which I had none), eating regular meals, not snacking, exercise etc. Every person is different depending on their past, their attitude towards food etc.

Well I could certainly use the "motivation" aspect and the "would you ever stop eating for fúck sake, you fat [email protected]" aspect.
