It is not my intention to suggest that people forget old problems which they have not dealt with. I am talking about unpleasant memories that have been processed but are still hanging around and, sometimes, negatively alter our future. In Hypnotherapy, anything dark from the past can be put to rest permanently. A good number of my cliients have asked me to help them forget  unpleasant events. I then hypnotized them and they forgot things, becoming more happy and resilient.
