The book also includes excerpts from the work of such renowned therapists as Bernie Siegel, Norman Cousins, Ernest Rossi, and Daniel Araoz.
Hypnosis is increasingly being used to relieve and cure a wide range of disorders, and is becoming a recognised therapy within the medical profession. Many sufferers are, however, deterred from seeking help because of ignorance about how hypnosis and hypnotherapy work. This book explains what hypnosis is, and describes how it can help in overcoming a wide range of problems, including phobias, smoking, exam pressure, overeating and stress. It describes what to expect from first and subsequent consultations, and how relaxation and visualisation can be practised at home. Further information is given on how to find out more and where to find a therapist.
