Neuro-Hypnosis: Using Self-Hypnosis to Activate the Brain for Change (Norton Professional Books)

Understanding the neuroscience of self-hypnosis for more effective treatment of a variety of conditions.

Drawing from over 30 years of teaching, researching, and practicing hypnosis, the authors share systematic instructions, techniques, and exercises for finding your way into a hypnotic trance—or deepen your trance if you’ve already found it. With exercises specifically tailored to address a wide range of concerns, including stress, depression, substance abuse, anxiety, weight management, fears, and sports performance, this book is a comprehensive guide for anyone interested in hypnosis. The authors synthesize and integrate the major theories of hypnosis and provide an overview of the fundamental tools used in self-hypnosis, especially attention, unconscious processing, and suggestion.

For clinicians, they provide evidence and practical considerations that therapists need to incorporate hypnosis into their practice. All readers will benefit from the tips, techniques, and exercises throughout which demonstrate how hypnotic interventions can be tailored to each person. Readers will be inspired to practice at home using hypnotic suggestions that target their specific concerns. Deftly balancing theory and practice, Neuro-Hypnosis provides the tools you need to open yourself to self-hypnosis, experience the vast potential of your mind, and activate your brain for growth, development, and lasting change.

    First class Probably the best book currently available on this subject. It contains large chunks of material from the Simpkinses’ earlier Effective Self Hypnosis, but adds significant new material especially regarding recent neurological evidence for hypnosis’s efficacy, and some brief but interesting considerations of cognitive behavioural therapy used in tandem with hypnosis.Some reviewers complained that the earlier book was rather vague in giving instructions for entering ‘trance’, but that’s not really fair; though the directions here are terse, the whole point of doing hypnosis properly is not to adhere closely to the scripts one finds in the scores of useless books on self-hypnosis out there, but to feel one’s way into the rather ordinary frame of mind that hypnosis is: i.e., a relatively formal analogue of the everyday experience of absorption we all go through when daydreaming, driving, or reading, (etc., etc.).Roger Straus’s Strategic Self-Hypnosis is a very good book, written from a completely different perspective. But as long as you do the exercises and find your way into a ‘hypnotic frame of mind’, and understand a little bit about how suggestion works, then the theoretical standpoint is irrelevant. It matters only to scientists.I also recommend Daniel Araoz’s The New Hypnosis, which is extremely well-written, and helped my understanding greatly, though it isn’t a how-to as such. It’s out of print, but findable.This is the best book, written by qualified clinicians not by people with Mickey-Mouse bona fides from non-academic bodies, and is worlds apart from nearly all the other books on the subject, most of which are actually appalling.

    Meditation An excellent book explaining what hypnosis is and how it actually works. Meditation itself is great to de-stress the body. This goes one step further allowing the unconscious to help heal the body in the trance state.
