I was talking to a senior gynaecologist yesterday. I told him what I did for a living.
I added: “It may surprise you that I have a number of doctors as clients.” “Not at all” he replied. “Doctors are under enormous pressure these days and they very much need support. Particularly the younger ones.”.
He then looked me straight in the eye and said: “I know well how effective hypnotherapy is. The only problem is that there aren’t enough of you”.
This was all music to my ears. At present hypnotherapy is not accessible under the NHS. But the more that doctors experience its benefits for themselves, the likelier it is for this to become so in the near future.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful for this potentially life-changing therapy to be available to so many anxiety and depression sufferers, not to mention those with sleep problems?
