I have been told by every therapist I've ever seen that hypnosis is useless for DP, that might help anxiety.
Respectfully, I believe there is a contradiction in your quote above.

It is widely accepted that DP/DR is a result/symptom of chronic anxiety disorders -- a defense mechanism if you will.

Therefore, if hypnosis alleviates symptoms of anxiety, as is suggested, hypnosis also would have the possibility to alleviate DP/DR (as DP/DR is kept alive thanks to an unrelenting anxiety disorder).

Furthermore, if the mind/body is unable to experience anxiety, can the mind/body expererience DP/DR? Or must an (underlying) anxiety disorder be present in order for DP/DR to exist/persist?
