  • successful integration into the cancer treatment programme
  • myths surrounding the subject of hypnosis in therapy

It raises questions about the direction medicine has taken and considers future developments. Presenting compelling arguments for offering hypnosis to cancer sufferers, this work provides crucial insight into the body’s healing abilities - an insight of immense importance to medical professionals and everyone interested in the treatment and approach to diseases.

Reviews

  1. An important book for anyone working with long term, chronic or terminal illness and the research included is impressive. However, for the hypnotherapist requiring guidance on techniques, it may not be the first choice as it isn't a book full of scripts and strategies. I believe this is a book that should be read by every therapist who is about to embark on this very serious area of hypnosis.
