Hypnotherapy
How trusting are you? Enough to let someone direct your thoughts while you're in an altered state of consciousness? Hypnotherapy uses the power of the mind and imagination to help address issues directly through the unconscious mind while you're in a trance-like state or induced into a prolonged sleep.

A qualified hypnotist will put a patient in a trance by repeating a command in a soothing, monotonous tone of voice that allows her to relax her body and focus on her breathing. While in this trance, therapists are able to intervene in the patient's mind to attempt to treat mental, psychosomatic and physical disorders. If you are really resistant to change or unable to break a bad habit like smoking, or if you're trying to achieve emotional balance, hypnosis might work for you.
