Modern psychology entirely consists of pumping unknown meds into your patients without knowing what the drugs actually do on the molecular level and pretend you give a shit for 30 minutes on biweekly basis. Oh, and collect 200$ per visit. It’s brilliant.

    Psychiatrists can and do use any means they see fit to treat their patients.Sometimes just talking to someone else helps patients see a different way of looking at whatever is stressing or causing distress that they cannot cope with.Hypnosis is also a useful tool that some use to help their patients control their own way of doing things. Most see medication as a last resort and would prefer to treat the patients without using drugs.
    Having said that, some patients need small doses of some drugs to relieve symptoms causing mental distress and anxiety, just so they can concentrate on the other problems in their lives.

    I don’t think you’re quite ready for that. Psychiatry is a healing science, not a witches brew of ill-conceived ideas. Hypnosis is not a valid or medically approved treatment; insurance companies don’t pay for such “hocus pocus” approaches.
