depersonalization and hypnosis

I am going to be hypnotized by my cognitive behavioral therapist tomorrow for my depersonalization. I was wondering if any of you had tried this and found it helpful and what or how it even works? Thanks so much for your support and advice. :D

I completely agree with Lostone...I went to a hypnotist in search of getting rid of my dp. although i remember everything that was said to me while "under," I was in a complete daze for about 3 days afterward. I told her, "uh...could u bring me back now please?" she was like..."you are back..."
and then i was like F%$*

you know what finally brought me back? when i got the frekin bill. what a rip off! so whatever, its worth a try, but i dont think there is such a thing as a "quick fix" when it comes to this stuff.
she basically just hypnotized me to believe what I wanted to believe...she said things like..." You are ok, you have always been ok," "you will go from here with new enthusiasm in your life," "You are cured", crap like that, I guess. I orginally went to her too because I thought there may be something traumatic I was blocking out as well. There was no trickery involved, or anything like that, I just felt that it didnt help because with dp, like you said, you're already in a daze every minute. This intensifies this daze tenfold, at least for me it did. But the same thing happens when I try to meditate or practice deep breahting, I get more daze-like. The best thing for me is to not concentrate on it, that makes me have a lot more mental clarity. But then again, I don't know how everyone will react, its a hit or miss. I didn't suffer any long term damage from hypnotism, it was just a feeling that I don't care to experience again. But good luck!
