This is a comprehensive evidence-based clinical manual for practitioners of cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy.Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy is increasingly becoming the dominant approach to clinical hypnosis. At a theoretical level, it adopts a research-based cognitive-behavioural model of hypnosis. At a practical level, it closely integrates traditional hypnotherapy and cognitive-behavioural therapy techniques. This is the first major treatment manual to describe a fully integrated cognitive-behavioural approach to hypnotherapy, based on current evidence and best practice in the fields of hypnotism and CBT. It is the product of years of work by the author, Donald Robertson, a cognitive-behavioural therapist and specialist in clinical hypnosis, with over fifteen years' experience in the therapy field. This book should be essential reading for anyone interested in modern evidence-based approaches to clinical hypnosis. It's also an important resource for cognitive-behavioural therapists interested in the psychology of suggestion and the use of mental imagery techniques.
