      101 Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started Using Hypnosis

      by Dabney Ewin

      ‘Always read the little book’-- Charles Dunlap, MD. Dr Dunlap rolled a small library of about 30 books into his medical class and told them it was a monumental compilation of everything that was known about diabetes, published in 1920, before the discovery of insulin. He then held up a book of about 200 pages and said ‘this was published in 1930, after the discovery of insulin. ‘Always read the little book’. Dabney Ewin has been teaching medical hypnosis for the past thirty years and in his experience he believes that a small book is likely to be a clear message by a knowledgeable author. This simple but immensely powerful book is a testament to all the ideas that Dr Ewin wished he had known about when he first starting practising hypnosis. He has sought to make this publication as little as possible, consistent with the message of seeking to take a complicated idea and presenting it in the simplest way.The words and phrases are designed to give any beginning or experienced student a foundation about the working of hypnosis. Divided into five sections with a comprehensive reference section for further reading, this book can be taken one page at a time from the beginning or browsed through randomly.

      How to Stop Stuttering

      by Bob G. Bodenhamer

      Stuttering has been in the shadows of public awareness for years. Sure, no one dies from stuttering, and it is not pervasive – only one percent of people stutter. Yet it is a malady that has not received a great deal of attention until recently. The King’s Speech, a British historical drama, made stuttering part of the public conversation. Moviegoers learned of the embarrassing pain that most “People Who Stutter” (PWS) suffer. The movie is about the young man who became the King of England just prior to the Second World War, revealing the painful experiences that stuttering created for him. The speech trainer in the movie, brings into focus this shocking fact stuttering is not about speech! It is about the “thinking” that is mostly unconscious and in “the back of the mind” of the PWS. In this volume, the author details a completely new approach to treating this debilitating condition. It both explains the structure of stuttering and blocking and provides cognitive tools for gaining more fluency. From identifying the origins of stuttering, through teaching how to think differently to working with stress, the author provides a unique approach to achieving more fluency.

      States of Equilibrium

      by John J. Burton

      This cutting-edge work represents a major step forward in both our understanding of the human personality and our ability to attain a higher level of human development.;John Burton's unique theory of personality asserts that every person strives to achieve a state of emotional and mental equilibrium. This state of inner calm allows us to respond effectively to the challenges of everyday life - as opposed to unresolved internal conflicts which often create chaotic internal states. "States of Equilibrium" thoroughly explores the strictly internal relationship between these states of mind and emotion within the individual, with the aim of helping us move towards a state of mental balance.;By presenting a variety of human development theories as well as NLP concepts, such as Meta-stating, Burton equips counsellors and NLP practitioners with all the tools necessary to neutralise stress and anxiety in their clients.

      The NLP Cookbook

      50 Life Enhancing Nlp Techniques for Coaches, Therapists and Trainers

      by Fran Burgess

      The NLP Cookbook is a veritable smorgasbord of NLP and related techniques gleaned from some of the greatest names in the field and adapted to provide an encyclopaedic resource for all therapists, coaches, change agents or health professionals.Fran Burgess uses the metaphor of cooking to describe the process of bringing together the best ingredients in NLP and selecting them carefully in order to produce some mouth watering results. The recipes are grouped into sections depending on their purpose. Quite a few focus on how to shift state, with some of these targeting specific states like acceptance and anxiety. These are followed by recipes that seek to develop behaviours and skills, and others that address beliefs and identity. There is then a wide range to choose from which deal with goals, relationships and the process of change.The beauty is that most of them can be used time and again for different circumstances and contexts, so they never wear out. Each recipe is prefaced by an introduction, giving you some background to its source and evolution. You are provided with its ingredients, should you be interested in its engineering, plus timings and materials required, and if it is suitable for working solo, or with a partner. Novice cooks can follow the recipes slavishly whereas those with more experience can adapt a recipe, adding a little something here, removing a little something there. This is not magic. They understand the chemistry that underpins the cooking process. They know what happens when you put this with that, now or later.

      Life Coaching

      A Manual for Helping Professionals

      by David B. Ellis

      This manual is specifically designed for therapists, counsellors and other helping professionals who are looking to add life coaching techniques to their portfolio of skills. Dave Ellis, author of Falling Awake, has produced a step-by-step practical guide to turning your natural people helping skills into a profitable life coaching business. Life coaching is not therapy, but many of the qualities that therapists possess, and the techniques they use, naturally lend themselves to a life coaching approach. Because Ellis advocates a more directive approach than most authors of life coaching books, this book will naturally appeal to therapists and counsellors used to conducting therapeutic interventions. Life coaching is a fast growing profession and many think it will replace therapy as the primary intervention to get people to live more positive, happy and goal-oriented lives.
