I don't believe enough can be said about the high quality of this book. Obviously you have to be already within a certain frame of reference in order to jive with this material, but if you are somebody who practices counceling or therapy and who is interested in the landscape where depth psychology meets the art of brief therapy, I would invite you to go nuts about his materpiece.
Gilligan beautifully weaves his model of Self-Relations into a serious conversation as to the dynamic that exists between and within both the client and the therapist. He points to ways we can embody ourselves as we help our clients reembody their lives, finding the balance that allows them to gently touch their center.
This book can be a meditative read in which you dwell within certain sentences and let your wisdom open up and sneak out in surprising new ways.
It really is a masterpiece. But don't purchase this book if you are looking for a practical self-help book or a precise manual in applying psychotherapy in various clinical contexts...

After you think you know what hypnotherapy is all about, this book will give you a larger perspective into ourselves and how the skills and concepts of hypnosis, aikido, and human sponsorship can help us.

Stephen Gilligan is a loving, playful, and sometimes fierce therapist, who is highly skilled in what he does with clients, and in his teaching as well.He is also a tremendously talented hypnotherapist, and a pretty nice guy to boot!
I think that his book offers a great deal of wonderful ideas for people to contemplate and try out. I sometimes suggest it to my clients to read so that they have a clearer idea of how I am hoping to help them.You do not need to be a professional to get a lot out of this book.

As I fought my way through very pretentious language that Stephen appears to have made up, there is some wonderful wisdom and insights. What a pity he can't write it in plain English! I still have not stuggled through to the end and stongly recommend buying hard coppy as Kindle is to difficult to flip back to the translations.
A pity
