I plan on visiting a local clinical hypnotherapist and wanted to see what experience others had with a hypnotherapist. Have any information to share good or bad? Trading related or otherwise?

Thanks,
Gary

Going to take a wild guess and say he wants to improve his trading and has identified some psychological issues he believes might benefit from it.

Perhaps you're correct. Let's see what he says.

hi G!

you gotta try it out!
such things can work very good - but not every person is reacting to it somehow.
also it must be the right client / therapist - combination.

its like in trading : one special technique work great for you and another guy isnt able to make 5 bucks with it.

its worth a try, maybe with more than 1 therapist if the first doesnt work somehow.

Zoe,

A number of reasons, both trading related and non trading related.

Explore possibilities like fear of success, self sabotage, etc.

Also, looking for more tools to help keep a relaxed, clear mind AKA getting in "the zone".

Possibly to help discover other things which may be subconsciously holding me back.

I am currently reading "Evolve Your Brain" and it has me thinking of a number of ideas/thoughts on this type of stuff.

I say read The Secret, it is not magic, it just forces your subcontious to always to be looking to satisify your goals.

It's funny how different people react to this suggestion.

Even one year ago I would probably react negatively. But now I've learned so much more about how the brain works, and the psychological impact it has on our everyday lives, in particular of course trading.

So knowing what I know now, I am actually very interested in hearing what people have to say on this -- people that have made the effort and have got this far in their journey to realize they could benefit from this type of assistance.

I agree with what Max said, it takes the right person to be in the right state of mind, or in the right part of their journey, to even be able to try this. Then, it also takes the right therapist on the other end (a competent one, good at their job), but I think it could be an extremely useful combination. So I am looking forward to this thread, am hoping several have tried this.

I also want to add I strongly believe in the power of the subconscious mind and how for example, things can affect us for years and years, and we aren't consciously aware of them. These can be both positive and negative. I am sure many of you can see things happen in your trading career which have you asking yourself, why did I do that? Were you able to confidently determine the answer to that question? Then, why did you do it again, and again, and again?

I have watched a number of interesting videos on people speaking about self-sabotage, and how some believe it is a self-protection mechanism to help you rid yourself of stress, by returning to you the place you were more comfortable. This could be for people who are consistently making money or not. One gave an example of a person losing money by not following their rules, yet, they do it over and over. Why? They are under stress as most traders are in the beginning, and their brain is looking for a way to end that stressful situation. How? By losing all of their money so they can no longer trade. Interesting perspective and just one example of self-sabotage. You could also see this with people who win the lottery. They are unable to handle it, and self sabotage their way back to the same financial condition they were before they won.

Are you able to trade all day/every day without anxiety? If yes, then you are a step ahead of me in this sense.

I am going to approach the hypnotherapy session with an open mind, and a belief I will gain something the session. How much and how soon? I don't know the answer to that, but believe it has great potential.

Gary
