Two volumes published in 1997 and 2001, respectively, are reprinted here in one. Allen (a practicing hypnotherapist in the UK) provides examples of the words he uses to achieve desired results in his hypnotism sessions with clients. In addition to these scripts he provides some advice on what the practicing hypnotherapist should be aware of during sessions. He offers scripts for breaking habits, weight loss, fear and panic management, confidence building, healing and pain management, sexual issues and problems, loss and bereavement, and smoking cessation. Scripts for strategies that are applicable to multiple issues are also presented. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
