Sounds like dodgy stuff to me. "trance" is a word used for the condition induced in someone when they get hypnotized. The very concept of "inner feelings " that need hypnosis to reach them is way outdated and dodgy, and not at all the current expert opinion of expert shrinks. If it is some wild variety of hypnosis, then it is truly voodoo and quackery. And if he left you, it doesn't sound as though the treatment was at all constructive or useful
