My wife has been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and as her husband and care giver I'm trying to delve into both understanding this disease and being an intelligent guide to freedom from as many of the negative symptoms as is possible. I've been reading up on hypnotism and would like to consider it as a future treatment but I'm wondering if the nature of Bipolar creates any unique environments where hypnotism might harm rather than heal.

I feel almost required to ask: has searching for this other places given you any leads? You say you've been reading up on hypnotism, but have you checked to see if anyone has tried hypnosis for bipolar disorder already? –  BenCole May 1 '14 at 16:56
