I have long suffered from MH issues, largely owing to my awful mother and traumatic childhood. Yesterday I had a session with a wonderful counsellor, who hypnotised me. I have completely lost my memory of the 4 hours of driving there, the session, and the return home. I had a strange night, slept deeply but I was conscious of lots turmoil going on in my head. I could not remember what day it was and what was going on. I also woke feeling as if I had run a marathon. My partner phoned her last night as he was worried about the fact that I didn't know where I was, where I'd been, where my bedroom was...she called me this morning and told me that I had shared some truly terrible things about my abusive mother and other things and that the memory loss, though unusually profound, was not unusual in itself. I have slept about 18 of the last 24 hours, and feel nauseous. Please can anyone share their experiences of hypnotism, whether the effects were similar, and whether it was helpful in the long run. I would be very appreciative of anecdotes from similarly afflicted people. Thank you so much.
