level . U can try hypnosis with the other treatement at first ... if u

When I first trained as a Hypnotherapist the general opinion at the
time was ?do not treat people with epilepsy?. However times change and
most therapists have no problem with treating clients who have

As to treating the epilepsy itself, that is a different matter.
Hypnosis is not a ?Cure All? and cannot be expected to provide a cure
as such.

However, in the hands of a skilled practitioner you may indeed find
some improvements to your condition.

The reason for this is you would learn some techniques for
self-hypnosis and mind-body relaxation. You would, perhaps, view your
condition from a different perspective and worry less about episodes
of fits. Hypnotherapy can be about ?Change.? Change in the way you see
yourself and your illness.

You could perhaps explore some techniques for creative visualization
and look into meditation. In fact anything that gives your body time
to really relax and your mind freedom from fear and anxiety. We
sometimes refer to hypnotherapy as mind-body healing; the body listens
to the mind and the mind the body. A relaxed mind would be beneficial
to you.

You and your therapist would need to closely monitor your condition
and expect some ups and downs but hopefully a gradual improvement but
I hasten to add not a cure. You would know from the first few sessions
whether you were taking the right route and had chosen the right
therapist for you.

Hope this is of some help.
