Handbook of Hypnotic Suggestions and Metaphors

Designed as a practical desktop reference, this official publication of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis is the largest collection of hypnotic suggestions and metaphors ever compiled. It provides a look at what experienced clinicians actually say to their patients during hypnotic work.

A book to be savored and referred to time and again, this handbook will become a dog-eared resource for the clinician using hypnosis.

    An Often-Used, Valuable Reference I purchased this book several years ago, when I first entered private practice as a hypnotherapist. Nine years later, I still refer to it frequently. As a previous reviewer commented, many of the scripts can be used verbatim; however, I use them mostly as guides and personalize them to the client. It’s a must-have book for every hypnotherapist’s library.

    An Excellent read A super rescource for the practitioner regardless of profession. Many, many helpful suggestions and hints to enable the appropriate therapy to reach target. The text gives scripts, “stories”, and suggestions for you to utilize in your practice. This is a great source for ideas in framing suggestion. I have used this text extensively, for pain relief, distraction, and for post-op recuperation for my patients.

      So, a very typical and riateslic approach usually does nothing more than make someone a tool of their environment, while attacking an issue from within, especially if that issue is tied to other issues upon other issues, is the first step to self mastery, which in turn will allow you to master your environment. You could easily be just another jerk at the gym, but with the right tools you can set your life back correctly, and help others along the way.

    Helpful Reference for Hypnotherapists The book contains brief introduction to Ericksonian hypnotic language patterns / how to formulate hypnotic and posthypnotic suggestions with 14 major sections of short hypnotherapy scripts for dealing with just about any issue a hypnotherapist may encounter in practice.Some of the sections are: pain management, self-esteem, anxiety, hypnosis for cancer patients, hypnosis for sleep disorders, hypnosis for addictions, weight loss, academic performance, and hypnosis for children.While I do not recommend that you necessarily use the scripts verbatim as they are written, this book may serve as an invaluable resource for ideas and possible suggestions to help you in your work as hypnotherapist.
