You do NOT need to "remember" the events of your childhood, for any reason. Most of us remember little or nothing from the earliest years, simply because our brain apparatus for remembering isn't functioning properly yet.
And if we have been subject to real trauma, we remember it. As even Freud recognized, after trauma we suffer from memories, NOT from lack of them.
There is not a shred of evidence that pushing someone to remember what might have existed is of any benefit to them, and lots of evidence that the methods used, including hypnosis, in these circumstances, can cause serious harm.
"Memories" are not a problem unless you have been convinced by people who profit by marketing quack methods for "recovering" them that this is supposed to be a problem.
What IS a real problem which can indeed be helped is whatever you currently experience as problematic, about emotions, behaviours, assumptions, habits, and relationships. And for that the bulk of the evidence is in favour of CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, as the best available current method for dealing with these issues.
Self-esteem and self-confidence, handling grief and anxiety, and so on, are exactly matters which CBT deals with well.
