I wish this book was available when I first started doing my research on hypnosis. Up to date I have read a lot of literature on this subject and that is the first book so far that gives a good and satisfying, easy to understand definition on Hypnosis. What is more- it presents the practitioner with different ways on how to relay the experience of trance to their clients.

In the book you can find a step by step manuals for dealing with addictions, cravings, phobias..., pretty much any other issue/problem that the client can bring to you. It is presenting the reader with more than few different approaches to solving a particular issue. And within the given structure there is plenty of room left for adding some steps of your own and personalizing it so it fits your own style.

Wonderful use of natural occurring trance states in the reader, where a lot of the information goes straight to the unconscious. It is the perfect learning tool for hypnotist and NLP practitioners - experienced and novice.
What a great book! A must have in your library.
Desi Edwards, Hypnotist

I've been a physician (M. D.) for 45 years, used hypnosis for 35 years, and believe it is impossible to learn too much. The description, and the reviews, seduced me into buying this book. I've had my nose in it for two days, and I've found some really good information so far, BUT the style of transcription from an interactive presentation drives me nuts. I need information presented, demonstrated, and then (for skills) supervised. The tone of many chapters reminds me of the mindless dialogs on some morning news shows, jabbering rather than a formatted information presentation. CLEARLY this is a very knowledgeable author, who obviously understands the various techniques for dealing with re-programming the subconscious (not just formal hypnosis, but subtle "waking" hypnosis, NLP. etc.) I suspect if this was a DVD recording of the actual presentation I might have found it easier to follow and learn from it. But I wish she had organized her thoughts and written a book rather than transcribe the presentation.The author in her introduction says"some of my favorite books are written this way" (transcribed from a presentation) BUT she then adds "keeping in mind how much gets lost in the transition to text. . ". If you're plush on funds and want to add a little to your knowledge, the book may be a good buy. If you learn best by reading about people interacting, then perhaps it is for you. If, like me, you need an organized presentation with measurable objectives then I would suggest you look elsewhere.

I dont know if my earlier review was posted - but to be sure, i'll post my review again.

This book is basically the best book ive read in the field of hypnosis. It essentially provides multiple pieces of framework for the hypnotherapist to basically tackle any condition or issue that a client comes in with. I just wish i had of come across Melissa's training sooner.I love the fact that there's no fluff - most seminars and books for that matter end up being largely fluff talk and endless success story dribble with little to no substance. This book is full of practical advice that can be applied pretty easily and effectively. I've never written a review before and thats a testament to this book.

If you basically want to expand your hypnotist toolbox 10 or so times, buy this book.

Format: Paperback
From the first page Integrative Hypnosis brings you to the party you always wanted to join but never were invited, included or notified. Demystifying the technicalities and rules of Hypnosis and NLP, the author immediately immerses you in in enough new experiences,perspectives, metaphors and communications tools to achieve the trances, altered states and new vantage points where change, healing and transformation occur. The book's beauty is that Integrative Hypnosis is really about states of relationship,rapore and acceptence, both internal and external. These bring resource, healing, meaning and love. So besides providing the most useful, practical, and natural interventions to your door, by the time you finish playing with this book you will have forever changed, and grown. The inductions, contexts, metaphors and communication tools the author teaches seemlessly capture the spirit and intent behind her work, which is to include you in this dance of consciousness, nature and healing. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
As a Columbia-trained psychiatrist, I thought I knew a thing or two about therapy. Five years ago, I had my first training in hypnosis with Melissa Tiers, and she immediately began to blow my mind with her challenging perspectives, attuned teaching, and powerful hypnotic skills. Her influence has transformed the way I practice psychiatry, and many of my patients have been the direct benefactors. Hypnosis, NLP, and EFT have become some of the most powerful modalities in my clinical toolbox, and very few clinicians come close to Melissa's versatility in utilizing and teaching these skills. Her book is a faithful, you-are-there rendering of her trainings, complete with the charm, wit, and playfulness that Melissa infuses into her work. She remains one of the most talented, creative, and generous human beings I've ever encountered, and this book is a gift that I'm sure you and your clients will benefit from. And now, you can take a deep breath, relax into a smile, notice how the pages turn effortlessly, as you absorb the wisdom of an expert teacher...
