Summary

Hypnosis has long been an important tool to therapists working across a broad spectrum of disciplines and specialties. Self-hypnosis, on the other hand, is less well understood, and has been used by only a limited number of psychotherapists over the years. This book is the first of its kind to explore what self-hypnosis is, what it can do for us, how to do it, and the ultimate effects of self-hypnosis. Starting with a background and history of hypnosis, this book breaks down the process of hypnosis into its basic parts, then offers step-by-step instructions for practicing self-hypnosis. In the final section of the book, specific self-hypnosis techniques are offered to solve specific problems, such as conquering fears, reducing stress, or quitting smoking."Self hypnosis is an art of inner communication that can be used for many purposes", write the authors in the introduction. This book dynamically explores how inner-communication can totally transform us -- from how we react to specific stimuli to how we,think and the choices we make.
