Media reports state that Katy is “retraining” her brain to prevent taking her ex-boyfriend John Mayer back. The latest celebrity reported to be using hypnotherapy.
The singer split up with fellow musician John in February after claims emerged that he cheated on her. Like many people at the end of the relationship she has struggled to find a way to move on and so Katy has turned to hypnotherapy to try and help her cope.
“Katy was devastated when they broke up,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “But she is a firm believer in alternative therapies and she wants to wipe him from her life for good, so she decided to see a hypnotherapist. She wants to retrain her brain to prevent John coming back.”
The idea that you could just erase someone from your mind is attractive to the media but in reality, Katy will be using hypnotherapy to help her learn to relax and let go rather than erase her memory.
She reportedly used the treatment after her marriage to comedian Russell Brand ended in 2011 so she already knows how well hypnotherapy techniques work for her.
In times of stress the benefits of hypnosis and hypnotherapy are highly documented.
