The latest celebrity reported to be using hypnotherapy and hypnosis is singer and Russell Brand ex Katy Perry. Media reports state that Katy is "retraining" her brain to prevent taking her ex-boyfriend John Mayer back.
The Roar 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."
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.
Katy, 29, and John split on a couple of occasions during their two year courtship, but she took him back both times. However she is said to be determined to stick to her latest decision.
"They had talked about marriage and she seemed to think he was a changed man, so she is beyond gutted, she doesn't want to find him attractive anymore."
John, 36, is renowned for charming his exes into getting back together with him, including Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston. And according to the source, Katy's refusal to give him yet another chance will not sit well with the musician. "He hates women moving on from him but this time she's determined to completely erase him from her life," the insider added. "Her first step was to get him to move all of his belongings out of her home. Katy wants a fresh start and she is well on her way to putting her relationship with John firmly in her past.
Although the idea that you could just wipe someone from your mind is attractive to the media the reality is that Katy will be using hypnotherapy to help her learn to relax and let go rather than to erase her memory! In times of stress the benefits of hypnosis and hypnotherapy are well documented.
