Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell!
Firstly, I wanted to welcome you to the forum and I hope that you find all the support and help that you need here. I too am curious as to what help you are receiving at the moment. As for hypnotherapy, my dad is a qualified hypnotherapist and spent 4 years using it in a clinical sense. He seemed to think it worked, as did the people who he treated. Not eveyone is suitable for hypnotherapy so it might not work for you. It is certainly something worth considering as it can deal with the root causes as well as making you feel better in the short term.
I did see the same psychiatrist for over ten years, but he's close to retirement and cut back his hours so much that i can't see him anymore. I've started with a new psychiatrist, but I've only seen him once so far. I go to accupuncture every week, and we always start our session with about a half hour of talking. I haven't been able to find a therapist I click with, which is why I discontinued counselling and EMDR. I take 40mg of Prozac daily, and .5mg of Xanax when needed.
what is ect?
ECT = ElectroConvulsive Therapy. It is a form of therapy that was developed quite a long time ago (40-50 years ago I think) where an electrical current is passed through the brain for a short period of time. It is believed that it does help with depression but the results are mixed and there are side effects such as memory loss. It is much better now than it was but is not something I would recommend unless it was the last option. That is just my opinion though. Some people really believe in it and say that it is a very effecive form of therapy and would recommend it as a first choice.
