Hi Eric-I e-mailed you a few days ago and havent heard back and I cant seem to PM you from here. Anyway I was at your website and without realizing that I was posting my e-mail for all to see I commented in your guestbook. Is there a way for you to delete that? My question is how does CBT differ from hypnosis? I am seeing a gastro who has worked for the last 2 years with Dr Drossman at UNC on Oct 5th. She will be directing the functional GI and motility program at Boston University Medical Center, where I have been going for 2 years( to their GI dept-I think this GI motility dept is new). My DR wanted me to see her when I asked him about seeing a therapist who dealth with GI issues.Whereas I can STIll hear Mikes voice that I "am always in control" years after I did the IBS hypno, I am encouraged that CBT or something like it will ultimately help me. Her name is Dr Albena Halpert. Do you know her/know about her? Thanks for your attention.
