I think it is important to remember that hypnosis is nothing more than guided suggestions delivered to a willing participant who is in a “state” of relaxation”, ie. relaxed. Although the studies above state positive findings, the same results can be achieved by following recommended relaxation exercises, by being prepared, and to have contingency plans to go to. No staff required.

That being said, ADHD is a matter of genetics influencing chemistry. There is nothing that hypnosis can offer that will change genes, or affect ADHDs chemistry. Hypnosis won’t cure cancer, or make your bad cholesterol behave. Hypnosis does not do that. It can help you with awareness, relaxation, imagery, l̶e̶v̶i̶t̶a̶t̶i̶o̶n̶, and the like if you are a willing participant. Nothing more.

We are ADHD. Certain things go with that, whether we are on meds or getting pysch advice or therapy. Wishing and wanting for troublesome symptoms to go away will not work, unless you have a connection with Santa or Barbara Eden. It does mean we can work on things by engaging our symptoms with appropriate tools from your ADHD toolbox.
