Hypnotherapy to let go of anger?
i have had major problems at home with my in-laws. they almost ruined my marraige. I wanted to end it but my husband and I worked through it and my marraige is much more stronger and stable. I have developed alot of anger and hatred towards my in-laws for their interference and I go out of my way to ignore them & end up staying in my room every day after work. They now want to mend our relationship because my husband and I have told them we are moving out by next year. I cannot seem to let go of my anger and be in the same room with them leave alone have a good relationship with them. I want to make my husband happy & work at my relationship with them.
To get over this mental block I feel towards them I have considered hypnotherapy. Will it help reduce my hatred for them ?
And who shouldI go to for reliable & safe treatment?

I really don't have the srength to go into the hypnotherapy issue again --- check out the archives of this forum for my previous responses.
Briefly --- Hypnotherapy, from a "hypnotherapist" is quackery, and almost always a VERY BAD IDEA. It CERTAINLY is never considered, by any competent expert, to be a suitable therapy for anger and hatred. See a regular counsellor ( who will promose not to atempt hypnotherapy) and work on these issues, and you'll find them soluble while you're wide awake, and not in a trance.
