It really doesn't in the context of your post, or in the context of "do I have repressed traumatic experiences" more broadly, based on the overwhelming majority of trauma specialists, hypnosis gurus, and everyone in between.Depends what they're hypnotizing for
Hypnosis brings a person into a dissociated state. Like it or lump it, that's about as suggestible as a person gets, and the mere process of bringing a person into that state requires the acceptance of suggestion by the client.
As things currently stand - and, it's shit - repressed memories are best left to come out of their own accord. Which means they may not come out ever.
But...that's okay. There's healing even without knowing.
And I'm gonna throw it in there because of personal experience - sometimes Major Depression, including treatment refractory depression just is. Like Multiple Sclerosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Which absolutely sucks. And @~Lea~ , you're allowed to have compassion for yourself without knowing, and without there being any environmental cause.
My own journey with depression has been a long and painful one. I've tried a lot of treatment that got me nowhere. Over a decade of it.
Know one thing for certain: even when you've had years of depression that hasn't budged no matter what treatment you've thrown at it, it can get better. And when it does, you pinch yourself every single day because who knew just being alive could be this easy and worthwhile.
So keep at it. Be gentle with yourself. Be compassionate. Whatever your story, you're here now. With reasons to make a life that's worth living for yourself, irrespective of where you've been.
Maybe one day something will bubble to the surface. Don't be in a hurry to find skeletons in the closet, because if they're there, they aren't going anywhere. Today, though, this moment that's worth living - you only get one chance at that. Fight for that. Because you deserve to feel better even if your depression just is.
