I hope you find a suitable therapist. Start by looking up registration bodies for the therapist type you want, don't be in too much of a hurry.
Also consider other kind of therapies such a psychodynamic therapy as Our behaviours often have deep, deep roots.
Know that you can also have a trial session with a therapist and then choose not to continue if that person is not suited to you.
It is no bad thing to use hypnotherapy tapes,
try to take your time, as this will result in a more sustainable change in your life.
I hope my views above are of help
