“Bill O’Hanlon has done it again….This short book is filled with useful information about trances and is written in an easy to understand and practical manner. I have already recommended this book to my students. I can easily recommend it to you as well...O’Hanlon’s books are always filled with precious clinical nuggets.” (Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter)

“From emphasizing through voice volume to creating rhythm in altered states, A Guide to Trance Land is a fine addition to any health library.” (Bookwatch)

“[C]harming, instructive book, easy to consume.” (DianaPageJordan.com)

“I highly recommend this to the serious clinician...This volume is probably the most concise opportunity for a practicing clinician to understand the breadth of permissive hypnosis.” (Tim Brunson, Ph.D. - The International Hypnosis Research Institute)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are a lot of really good books on the subject of Ericksonian hypnotherapy--thousands of pages and millions of words. Now here comes Bill O'Hanlon with a deceptively slender volume of the very best, very most important, very most powerful things every hypnotist should know to do this stuff elegantly and well. It would be hard to overestimate how much value this book contains per page, or how valuable it could be if gotten into enough hands--especially those of the direct-suggestion hypnosis school. A Guide to Trance Land is a marvel.

This little book is packed with very easy to understand hypnotheraputic methods that make session work a breeze! The biggest fear that new hypnotist and hypnotherapist have is the resistance they receive from their clients. This little book explains in clear examples how to overcome such resistance without mentally arm wrestling your client. This is a must for your hypnotheraputic toolbox in my opinion!

Format: Paperback
Some people write short books because the don't know enough about their subject matter. Bill's shorter books are written because he knows a huge amount about this subject, but has put great effort into distilling and organising the work into just what is needed without extra fluff.

As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, I find this book as well as his guide to Possibility Land the ones I go back to time and again to refresh my knowledge and ideas on the subject.

Format: Paperback
A great comprehensive overview on the techniques of permissive trance that are not only helpful in therapeutic trance but can also support coaching sessions with business clients.
BillO'Hanlon shows that he is really a master of trance land because he shows the ability to really strip decades of personal experience down to the essentials for a newcomer.

Format: Kindle Edition
I've been a Bill O'Hanlon fan for some time. However, in this instance I find myself quite disappointed. Not only was it VERY brief and I mean, VERY brief, but it was primarily a surface re-write of his classic, SOLUTION FOCUSED HYPNOTHERAPY. If I had wanted a revision of SFH, I would have bought a newer edition, if available.
