This long-term bestseller contains the single largest collection of hypnotic suggestions and metaphors ever compiled, with contributions from over 100 of the finest hypnotherapists in the world. An official publication of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, it tells us what experienced clinicians actually say to their patients during hypnotic work. This is not intended as a ?cookbook? of suggestions to be used routinely with various clinical populations but rather to provide clinicians with models from which they can develop their own styles and approaches. A truly immense work in every respect, to be savoured and referred to time and time again. Highly recommended.
