The Practice of Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy

Routledge | Barnes & Noble | Amazon

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, 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.

One of the very best
Wonderfully clear, comprehensive textbook on clinical hypnosis and its logical relationship with cognitive-behavioural therapy.

Robertson is the most transparent writer on hypnosis that I have ever read, and this book is as good as any if you want an up-to-date understanding of the subject. It’s very readable for an intelligent layman, and frankly there’s so much rubbish out there that you need to start with top-quality ones like this.

Couldn’t recommend it more.

Five Stars
As described and extremely useful book for those pursuing a career as a Hypnotherapist. —Lamlam

If you read one book on hypnotherapy make it this one!
If you’re looking for a challenging read on hypnotherapy, which is both scientifically and historically rigorous and which links current thinking on the modern practice of Hypnotherapy with that of CBT and Mindfulness…then it definitely is the book for you.
