The story about well-known actress spoke out about her struggle with OCD and how she was using hypnotherapy to manage her condition. She was very brave to do this because OCD is a difficult condition and if you are to get to the bottom of it you must go to heart of the matter and confront the issues which trigger the behaviour. This can be painful but hypnotherapy can be quite gentle in tacking the underlying problem which is the anxiety generated by the trauma.
When a person is experiencing the urge to repeat certain rituals, they are entering a daydream like state and may be unaware of their actions – repeated hand-washing or pulling out hair. Hypnotherapy has a way of helping the sufferer reach into their unconscious to soothe and minimise the compulsion for damaging behaviours.
I was also drawn by the BBC investigation into the sort of music people like to listen to when they are ill to make them feel better. Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody was number one and Dancing Queen number two in the feelgood charts.
Music has often been used to heal because it stimulates both emotion and memory. It can comfort people suffering from dementia and has been shown to have a transformative effect.
Those who create music use the process as a kind of therapy too. A catharsis of the spirit occurs when an artist expresses their trials in life which is then passed on to the listener who uses it to heal their own problems.
