Can childhood hypnosis effect the memory when the child is a teen?

- Advertisement -

When I was about 8 or 9, I went through two trials of hypnosis for childhood trama. But now that im about 16 I have noticed that my short term memory is almost weak. If that makes sense. I feel like im loosing my mind, i understand everyone forgets things but not everysecond. I really would like to know if theres a reason for this or if im just going crazy!!! Please help me!!!!

well it could, but its probably just your body’s way of making a bad memory go away… the more you think about it, the more your body will probably do this.


Hypnosis is a type of therapy used for recollection of repressed memories (memories you intentionally want to forget). This is also called motivational forgetting. Therefore hypnosis doesn’t directly affect your learning, memory, or thought process.
However stress and too much thought about the childhood trauma you experienced can cause chemical imbalances in your brain. In result this can affect your ability to take in new information.
I am not a psychologist but have taken classes in psych.
I would recommend you see a professional to address the problem further.
I hope this helps =]


Most likely it is not the hypnosis. Something like that could be done with hypnosis but it would not be easy.
There are tricks and exercises you can do to strength short term memory.
