Synopsis:

An easy-to-follow, reassuring and responsible guide that shows how you can use hypnotherapy to identify and overcome unhealthy modes of thinking, deal with emotional issues, improve performance, and banish bad habits. Whether you’re seeking to overcome anxiety or depression, improve your performance professionally or personally, lose weight or beat an addiction, hypnotherapy can help you make the changes you want.

Synopsis:

When most people think of hypnotism, they think of stage hypnotism--;someone made to feel very sleepy and then asked to cluck like a chicken. But in reality, hypnotism can be an extremely effective therapy for a whole host of issues, from quitting smoking and losing weight to overcoming phobias, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and other problems. This friendly guide demystifies hypnotherapy, explains how it works, and helps people work with a hypnotherapist or get results with simple self-hypnosis.
