Book Description

Hypnotherapy provides a powerful tool for utilizing the power of the mind to reduce distress and suffering. This concise guide provides readers with a rich source of ideas on starting hypnotherapy practice, and thinking seriously about hypnosis as a powerful adjunct to psychotherapy and medical interventions. With a clear definition of what hypnosis really is, readers can develop an understanding of the rationale for utilising hypnotherapy with particular disorders.As the medical community is progressively adopting a biopsychosocial model of healing, there is a serious move toward validating the scientific credibility of hypnosis, and hypnotherapy has become a well-established treatment. Unlike any other introductory text, "Hypnotherapy Explained" adopts a uniquely scientific approach among introductory texts; reviewing theories and offering practical ways to integrate hypnotherapy in medical, psychiatric and psychotherapeutic practice. It is enlightening reading for general practitioners, psychiatrists, psychologists and other healthcare professionals.
