Assuming no previous knowledge, Damian helps the reader to:

- Learn an empowering and respectful philosophy for helping people change with hypnosis

- Explore the fascinating History of Hypnosis and meet many of the pioneers going back centuries

- Discover what people actually experience when they access hypnosis and how these natural phenomena can be used for therapeutic ends

- Find out about natural hypnoidal states and how hypnosis surrounds us on a daily basis

- Investigate what factors influence individual hypnotic susceptibility and find out why what happens in a research laboratory is not necessarily the best guide to what happens in real life

- Examine a number of classic theories and 'explanations' for hypnosis

- Discover different styles for inducing hypnosis, deepening it and communicating with your client in trance

- Learn how to handle the unexpected and how to engage with clients in a supportive and respectful way

- Be introduced to a range of therapeutic approaches for utilising hypnosis for therapeutic change.

    A great introduction to hypnosis and positive theraputic approaches.
    A thoroughly enjoyable and informative read. Very clearly written for the beginner and some great information for the more experienced hypnotherapist. I have been a clinical hypnotherapist for a number of years now and am always eager to learn new approaches and techniques. A fantastic book for the collection.

    This is one of those books that has such an easy conversational style that you don't realise how much you've picked up at the end! Really informative and interesting, especially for a novice like myself. I'd think that this would be a really good starting point even for someone who wanted to get into hypnosis/hypnotherapy seriously. For me it was a great read!

    As someone who didn't know much about hypnosis to start with I was looking for a good introduction and this book is exactly what I needed. It is very well written and conversational in tone but provides a huge amount of fascinating information about the history, theory, methods and applications of hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I can't really imagine a better introduction to the subject and I would recommend it to anyone.
