5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough and easily understood by professionals and casual readers alike
I was assigned this book as a student in Hypnosis 101 and still refer to it in my
professional practice.It is well written for the professional yet easily understood
by the casual reader.It is very motivating and gives hope and direction for those wanting to make a change. No wonder it is cited in at least five other texts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Starting Point
This book is a really good starting point for a person looking to get involved with the field of clinical hypnosis as Hadley and Staudacher have clearly outlined the basic process. Providing useful inductions and scripts, you could practice with this volume for awhile and then could decide if you wanted to go on to more intensive hands-on practice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive book on hypnosis
The author presents an easy to read, interesting and usefull book on hypnosis.I was able to use the historical section for my lectures at various universities.The applications of hypnosis were simple to understand, yet advanced enough to meet the needs of professionals.I was very happy with the way Ms. Hadley explained the cognative approaches to smoking cessation, weight reduction and stress management. I am happy to recommend this book to my students.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brett K. Steier (Master Clinical Hypnotherapist)

In this book it gives you information on exactly what to do with each situation it talks about.It gives youinductiona as well. It also talks about different type of hypnoticcommunication, I liked that part.This book would definetly help you alongthe way while you are studying and practicing hypnotherapy.

2-0 out of 5 stars Annoying Voice
I could not get past the voice to enjoy the CD.Too fast? Loud? Tone? I have a collection of meditation cd's, self-help, etc, and this one is just not easy to listen to and absorb.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lost weight, started sleeping better
I have been using these CD's for a couple of months now. My weight is gradually dropping, which is what I wanted and expected. The surprise has been that in the aftermath of a highly stressful change in my life, the hypnosis sessions are helping me to reduce anxiety and to sleep better. I love the emphasis on a healthy lifestyle.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great tool to learn self-hypnosis, relaxation and visualizing your personal "makeover"
I was taught self-hypnosis years ago by a good friend and once you learn how to put yourself in a state of deep relaxation, you can work on reshaping your thoughts. All action starts as thought, and results come from beginning by visualizing and thinking positively. I wish I had remembered this technique sooner, but I did buy a copy of this CD and I'm so pleased to be able to relax and focus using Gurgevich's method of trance.Gurgevich is an associate ofAndrew Weil, MD, the well-known holistic physician, and he is an expert in hypnotic techniques.

There are three CD's. The first one explains self-hypnosis. This explains how beliefs, stress, nervousness and tension inhibit your motivation and strength in completing your "total makeover." By "makeover", Dr. Gurgevich means making over your mind so you can make over your dietary habits and health habits.

The second CD focuses on healthy habits. There are various self-hypnosis tracks for self-love and acceptance, self-control and temptation, emotional barriers and also detractors and saboteurs.

The third CD has you do three half-hour sessions of self-hypnosis. Morning is done before breakfast to motivate you and energize you for the day while keeping you in a state of calmness. The second trance is intended for before dinnertime--to help you enjoy preparing and eating dinner and handling hunger and craving. The final trance is meant to be done before bed (or in bed.) Dr. Gurgevich guides you on relaxation that affirms your good habits and encourages deep and relaxed sleep. This track is my favorite and actually, I started listening to it first, because I knew it would remind me how to regain a self-hynosis state most easily. Plus I have time before bed.

It was frankly more difficult to carve out two more half hour session for the morning and dinnertime tracks--but rescheduling for relaxation isn't a bad thing. I found those three half hours.

Some reviewers have commented they don't find Dr. Gurgevich's voice soothing. I actually agree with that. At first, I found his voice not at all to my liking but as I perfected my ability to go into relaxation state, I found his tone quite appealing. It makes me smile now. He drops his volume at just the right time, and he is quite effective in teaching how to go into trance or self-hypnotic state. If you've purchased this set, my suggestion is to stick with it and concentrate on the relaxation techniques and enjoy the feeling, because you may associate Gurgevich's light tenor with very pleasant relaxing half hours, as I do.

The three-a-day trance sessions do not have a tremendous amount of suggestion about self-affirmation or eating habits--they are more about relaxation and focusing on your "total makeover"--which you visualize using the second CD. Once you've fixed in your mind what your "total makeover" looks like (eating healthy foods, relaxing, working out, ignoring temptation and naysayers) you can cue into the visualization during these sessions as a sort of "short-cut" when the word "makeover" is used. So you need to spend some time doing visualization of YOUR makeover first, and then you will find the three-a-day half hours have more meaning.

I find I'm more energized when I wake up to do my workout, and I also find I sleep much better and more deeply if I listen to the evening session regularly. I'm taking this stepwise--you can always go back, re-visualize the "makeover" and make it more particular to your situation (more healthy foods, editing out other ones, more working out, whatever you need to step up your game.) This isn't necessarily a linear set of CD's. You visualize what you need, then use the daily practice to relax and focus your mind on your goals and habits. It takes, they say, sixty days to impress an new habit into your mind, so you'd have to give it time.

So far, I love the relaxing effect and I recommend this set for people serious to learn self-hypnosis and visualization. It is not a "listen-and-lose-weight-effortlessly" instant pill. You will not lose weight by simply playing this in your CD player as background noise. This requires a committment, but it's well worth it.

Best ever for me. His voice, accent and method used helped me tremendously as others of Glenn Harolds CD"s did.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you for making my life better!
I have bought and listened to many cds which touted they were hypnosis for stress reduction. This one is the very best. I am amazed how it worked for me the very first time I used it! It has changed my life for the better. I am so grateful! This cd relaxed me, put me in a great state of mind and eased my anxiety. I felt totally refreshed and happy after listening to this cd and found that hearing it twice a day would even be better.It's wonderful to have access to such quality hynotherapy!I feel lucky to have found this cd and have recommend it to anyone and everyone!

5-0 out of 5 stars tremendously effective hypnosis-relaxation practice
Janet Dekker is a tremendously insightful hypnotherapist. She recognises that the impediment to effective self control and self-esteem is often the impact of negative messages and self-messages and begins the journey to healing by first targeting these (as seen in her Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem CD). In this hypno-routine she instills the stress-countering suggestions by first getting you calm, deeply relaxed & at ease, includes an effective deep-breathing cue and teaches you how to engage in relaxing self-hypnosis by allowing YOURSELF to relax. The impact, I can personally testify, is remarkably effective. The only problematic suggestion input to my mind is the idea that staying calm and under rational control is ALWAYS the best way through any situation. Like all massive generalisations this one is open to question. There are surely situations where strong expression becomes necessary and people with whom only powerfully conveyed messages work; and of course one needs to feel one's feelings fully and intensely, without being overwhelmed by them or at their mercy. I guess if one is aware of this idea, the suggestions will not work to produce emotional flattening or repression. That said, this is an outstanding product: humane, compassionate and actively helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stood out above the rest
This is a great CD.I was concerned that hypnosis would not work on me, but the last couple of times I've used the CD I've awakened from my "trance" and noticed I'd been drooling!And I was sitting up to listen!

3-0 out of 5 stars Helpful but disappointing in small ways
At the beginning of the recording Ms Decker says that in case of emergency you will be awake and alert.For some reason she restates this a couple of times in the course of the program.I found this very distracting and unnecessary.Generally the content is good, but sometimes it sounded too much like reading from a text. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST have hypnosis book
Trance work is a MUST have book for anyone utilizing hypnosis within their practice. As a counselor and hypnotherapist, this book is a valueable tool in my toolbox. This book is very thorough and very well written. The interviews were very insightful. I wish I had known about this book earlier.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is a great resource
I've been using hypnosis in my mental health practice for some time and found Tranceworks to be one of the most comprehensive, yet easily understood, books available on the subject.Before opening the book, I assumed that it would probably be presented in a rather academic, textbook format, but was immediately engaged by its interesting and easy-to-read presentation. A great resource for laying both a theoretical foundation as well as a practical, how-to approach to practice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Trancework
I have read multiple books on hypnotherapy and hypnosis. This is by far the best of the lot. Yapko's presentation of all the nuances of hypnotherapy and separating myth from reality is brilliant. The book takes you on a scholastic journey of hypnotherapy holding your hand all along. I wish I had read this book before as it would have saved me lot of time and energy trying to make sense out of theories and concepts that other books provide in a disjointed fashion. A "must have" book for a serious student of Hypnotherapy.

5-0 out of 5 stars It is what it says
I've studied hypnosis with Stepp, Bandler, and Dobson and read just about every book by Bateson, Haley, Watzlawick,Zeig, Hilgard,Rossi, and Weitzenhoffer as well as the collected works of Milton Erickson....I wish I had found this book early on. It's a great foundation book that everyone who studies and uses hypnosis as a tool should have in their library. Yapko is obviously influenced by the Erickson approach to hypnosis but this doesn't prevent him from providing the alternatives and how they might be appropriately used depending on how the client presents. If you are new to hypnosis YOU NEED TO BUY THIS BOOK.

I am not a psychotherapist,psychologist,or psychiatrist(and for some people that's enough for you to completely discount this review) but I use hypnosis as a tool in my practice as a performance counselor and I'm a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. I've received a lot of prejudice and discrimination from members of clinical groups in the past... Although Yapko writes for a clinical audience I found nothing in the book demeaning to those of us who are hypnotists practicing in environments other than healthcare.

It's always great to find a book which is what it claims to be...in this case "An Introduction to the Practice of Clinical Hypnosis." If you are new, this book will give you a strong start. I'd recommend reading it before any training in hypnosis...and then reading it again.

5-0 out of 5 stars A sweeping, accessible overview of the hypnotic process.
Rick Voit, Ph.D. Co-author: Hypnosis in Clinical Practice: Steps for Mastering Hypnotherapy. (Routledge)

Trancework is a wonderful achievement in presenting a thorough conceptual framework and understanding of trance states, hypnotic communication and the rationale for technique. Through its clear language, thorough review of research, and the introduction of powerful and novel teaching formats, Yapko carefully carries the reader from this well-established framework into very practical applications for psychotherapy. Its progressive building of concepts and logical applications results in a comprehensive discussion of how hypnosis and hypnotic language serve as natural extensions of the therapeutic process to basic skills and clear-cut guidelines for the integration of hypnosis into practice.
This book certainly provides the reader with many practical ideas for hypnotic language, induction procedures and clinical treatment planning. Yet, this reviewer believes the book's strength lies in how effectively it lays the groundwork for why these methods make sense. His sections on the concepts behind trance and hypnosis, human suggestibility and responsiveness, brain function, and various contexts in which hypnosis is practiced give the reader a depth of understanding that fully restore this meaning to an extent that few other texts achieve.
This is a book with few if any weaknesses. If anything, it may have attempted to do too much and yet, should any of its elements be removed, it would not be the complete work that it is. Yapko's thorough examination of the myths surrounding hypnosis and how they reflect misinterpretations of the process involved serve to illuminate the alternative truths involved. He most effectively dispels myths about hypnosis by examining ways in which responsiveness and suggestibility create the potentials through which we induce trance. This assignment of responsibility and further discussion of normal hypnotic phenomena allow the reader to grasp the purpose of techniques as means of utilizing, not manufacturing, trance behavior. In short, it successfully replaces the mindset of "doing hypnosis" with one of "being hypnotic."
Unlike many other introductory books, Trancework carefully and clearly examines those conditions and characteristics in people and in the therapeutic setting that lay the groundwork for hypnotic communication. I would recommend this book for students of hypnosis at any level of training. For the serious beginner, there is probably no more comprehensive and user-friendly text available. It has been my experience that many professionals who have completed advanced levels of training have not gained a comprehension of the hypnotic process sufficient to comfortably apply their skill with any range or effectiveness. In Trancework, these readers will discover an opportunity to expand their knowledge base while increasing the breadth of their hypnosis skills.
Because of its clarity and scope, this book would be of great interest to someone seriously curious about hypnosis.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is not a good book if it is trance that you are after
First of all I own this along with his other book Instant Self-Hypnosis: How to Hypnotize Yourself with Your Eyes Open both are nearly the exact same.
In the introduction "benifits of self-hypnosis can be achieved without the use of altered states".
I am looking for these altered states thats why I bought the book
this book is a rip off

5-0 out of 5 stars Life changing!
I just want to say how wonderful this Self hypnosis revolution book is.I bought it because of the great reviews and it is true, this book is different than his first book.It is life changing.It teaches you how to make self suggestions so that you will never see your life the same way again.You will do the same mundane, boring, repetitive, habitual things of daily life and will be able to inbue them with meaning, magic, wonder, awesomeness.This is the life we were meant to live.This is the way we were as innocent, children - viewing life in wonder and absorbing it with gladness and joy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Self-Hypnosis Revolution
July 28, 2007 was a lucky day for me. My brother had just come from his very first hypnosis session and was telling me how fascinated he was with the process. Later, I wandered into our local bookstore and headed for the self-help section. A book entitled, "Self-Hypnosis Revolution," had been placed horizontally on the shelf, staring right at me. Having just talked to my brother about hypnosis, I was curious. I picked up the book and was so fascinated with the intro that I immediately purchased it. Was it true that, as the author said, "Everything you do has anunderlying meaning that provides an opportunity to plant seeds within your mind to promote healing, change, and growth?" To my delight, yes, it was and is true! Forbes Robbins Blair's simple, eloquent explanation of how anyone can use the hypnosis process to promote positive self-growth is a treasure! I began using the techniques almost immediately. Within a very short time,I began to see sometimes subtle, sometimes major changes in my thought patterns, and consequently, my behavior. As someone who has read hundreds of self-help books, I rank this among the most effective for content. Definitely a 5,6,7, 10 star rating from me! Oh, yes, how did I remember that date? I recently picked up the book again to re-read a couple sections and the purchase slip fell out. I have had one full-year to test its effects. It works! Linda Cassell, Washington, DC

5-0 out of 5 stars A TRUE ORIGINAL
As a hypnotherapist of over 15 years, I have read many self-hypnosis books, most of them rehashing the same old stuff.While there's nothing wrong with "the same old stuff," it was exciting to read something that is was so unique and original.

Forbes' idea of utilizing natural trance states to make changes is outstanding.It updates and brings Coue's concept of repeating "every day in every way, I'm getting better and better" into the 21st Century!Some people just don't have the time to sit down and do self-hypnosis, and some people don't feel they can go into trance.Forbes' figured out a way that folks don't have to do either!

Very exciting.A revolution, indeed.

Excellent book.The book arrived quickly which is great. The only comment I have, and it really isn't important to me, is that the previous owner underlined key passages in the book which were different from what I would have underlined, but for the terrific price, I can't be happier.

3-0 out of 5 stars eh...
I really enjoy this book. It's opened my mind to many new thoughts and possibilities. BUT... I can hardly stand to read it because of all the silly gramatical errors a simple proofread would have fixed. Things like leaving the 's' out of breakfast, putting commas in the wrong place, and repeatings words such as 'to' where they shouldn't be.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Deserved Praise...
This book is verrrrrry well writen with a gooood sens of humour.Clear, Consis and to the point. Even with his funny jokes you can easily understand and applied the principles of Self-Hypnosis.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a fantastic book
This book is fantastic. You read all these books about NLP and quick persuasion and stuff like that but they never get really in depth with the topic of hypnosis or anything like that. You only get the over view of hypnosis and the point where the mind changes state or goes on auto pilot. This book on the other hand does not. It talks about hypnosis and the best bit is that it gives you steps on how to get into self hypnosis and if you were going to do it to someone else. After creating one of my own sessions and seeing if I could get into hypnosis did it work? Yes it did only becauseI wanted it too. That is the key! If you think that when you buy this book and think once you have done one of the sessions out of this book you will lose weight or give up smoking, no it doesn't work like that hypnosis only works if you want it to work. This books explains that as well. It if great to learn hypnosis and understand it better by actually being put into hypnosis.
Get the book and give it a try.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Intro to Self-Hypnosis
Eason is not the best in the writing department but his info is very user friendly. I'm not one to do a lot of memorization, which he asks you to do in some parts, but he made it very simple through visual association. I tried one session to attract the perfect house, in the perfect place at the perfect price and now I'm sitting in it as I write. Go figure... Unfortunately that was the last thing I worked on out of this book - I guess I should get back on the Eason trail. ... Read more

Product Description
Covert Hypnosis is the most subtle Influence. It doesn't resemble the sleeping client "deep in trance."

It is the utilization of nonconscious techniques and strategies to change the perception and behavior of others in a completely unconscious way.

The optimal applications for covert hypnosis are in the fields of selling, advertising, marketing, relationships and of course, therapy.

This 100,000 word manual includes truly up to the minute scientific breakthroughs in the area of unconscious influence.

For the simplicity of the reader the book is written with examples pertaining to either therapy or selling situations but of course the approaches discussed herein would apply equally as well to counseling, teaching, training, and other relationship and group situations.

Kevin Hogan has shared this material with companies that have paid $25,000 or more per day. He shared this information with the government of Poland to help construct strategies to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS. Most of this information has never been put in print before. Now, instead of paying $25,000 per day to have this information, you receive it in this dense manual for less than $100. A lifetime accumulation of research and practice are now available for your success building and relationship enhancement! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Caveat emptor
Not at all what I expected. This is more of a motivation tool for high-pressure sales people, Jehovah's Witnesses, and anyone who does direct or multi-level marketing. Those truly interested in hypnosis will only find this marginally interesting. Also, the book is poorly constructed, riddled with typos and grammatical errors. Not this author's best hour, if he's had one yet

5-0 out of 5 stars Covert Hypnosis Revealed
I typically don't write reviews about books but I found most of the reviews here extremely un-helpful. First covert hypnosis is not really traditional hypnosis. No one is being told, "Sleep!" It's also different from conversational hypnosis which gives strong attention to language patterns.

Covert hypnosis is about changing behavior at a deeper drive level. In other words you not only have someone do something but have them eager to do it.

The strategies, techniques, and tools Kevin Hogan present are so easy that a 12 year old can do it. Some people say when they learn how it's done "that's it". Well yes succeeding can be had with simple changes.

What's great about Kevin Hogan is that he tests everything to see if it works in the real world. So everything he presents is groundbreaking science.

Covert hypnosis has been used for decades. Only now is it being discovered how it's used. In fact I believe it was Kevin Hogan invented the term covert hypnosis.

I was reading two reviews below and I was surprised that people didn't really understand what Covert Hypnosis is. If you didn't know what is really was its okay it's not your fault. Covert hypnosis has been used by politicians and if you discover what it is you can see how it's used in the bible. Note: it's used a lot.

One reviewer about his grammar, I'm no expert in English but I'm not sure I really care.

When you use Covert Hypnosis you get results. At least I have.

I found this book to be life changing for me. I was surprised by how much I didn't know about human behavior. This book really helps you understand people, what motivates them and how to make a positive impact in their lives.

I can see where salespeople will love this. I use it for marketing. Most people will probably take the sales and marketing directions and apply them to relationships.

I have to recommend this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars A great book for those who don't know the basics yet
This is a great book for a newbie - if you have not yet started, but want to - then this is a good starting place.If you don't achieve what you want in the first 90 days, give it 6 months to try again.It is very basic which is what some people need.

One related book that is very powerful if you read it with a different eye is: How to make a Manchurian Candidate: the Soviet Art of Brainwashing: A synthesis of the Soviet Textbook on Psychopolitics

Be careful!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reading on Covert Hypnosis
Kevin helps the reader understand what drives a person to make a decision. Reading this book can help with selling to people by getting to know what drives them. Helpful for building rapport with others. A must read for anyone wanting to increase your confidence with selling products and services. [...]

2-0 out of 5 stars The book had to be renamed: how to become a succesful salespersons
I have read most of the book. I won't say that it is useless, but that it is rather disapointing. NLP is a very powerful set of practices for influencing other people. The name of the book is the one thing the author did that succeeded in convincing me to buy this book. The book is mainly about how to become a successful salesperson, almost nothing about other practices of covert hypnosis. Thus the name of the book suggests a wider scope. Throughout the book, the author seem to plant the messages "buy my other stuff" and "use my knowlege", and he seems to do it in a very ineffective way. If at least he was able to use covert hypnosis more effectively for that, the way Bandler and Grider (the original developers of NLP) did, then I would be tempted to believe I can learn a lot more from him.

Yet, the book is not useless. Some of the things written in this book are deep understanding of the selling business. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and a Certified Hypnotherapist, I have used Hypnosis in clinical practice for years.I always avoided past life regression as invasive and with the potential for abuse.

This book has opened up a whole new way of working with clients it is self directed allowing them to make the decision of going to the source of the problem rather that directing them to a traumatic event.I love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Most Delightful Book on Past Life Regression
The first thing that distinguishes this book from other past-life regression methods is that the suggestion given to the individual was not to go and revisit past life, but rather simply to "go back to the origin of the problem".

The book begins with Irene Hickmans' assistant (a hypnotist) who couldn't accept the idea of past lives, giving suggestion to the client to go back to the origin of the problem, and the hypnotist becoming bewildered with the client finding herself in another lifetime.

The cases described in this book are both informative and utterly entertaining to read.It is the most wonderful book on past-life regression.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book on PLR I've ever read.
As a Certified Hypnotherapist I have read several books on the subject. Dr Hickman's method is simple straight forward and I use it on a regular basis when dealing with PLR. I highly recommend this book to hypnotherapists as well as those with an interest in past life issues.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mind Probe, Clearly and concisely
I am certified as a hypnotherapist and have used Mind Probe - Hypnosis, asa guide for getting to client's difficulties without being invasive. Ms.Hickman's work is so clear and simple in its approach, all that has to bedone is to review the material in her book once in a while, to be able tohelp clients with problems no one else seems to get through.

If everthere was a book that took away the veil of mysticism in getting into theinner reaches of the subconscious, in a safe and non-invasive way, this isthe only book needed.

3-0 out of 5 stars What I missed in the book...
The cover promises the prospective reader might hold a "a complete guide" to self-hypnosis in his hands. Various methods are offered indeed but one - and in my opinion the most practical and effective - is missing: the work of Dave Elman. I don't know why the name of Elman is left out in this book?

5-0 out of 5 stars my dear guide to self-hypnosis
Compared with the other books in this field, the book is excellent--rich theory and clear instruction.But the structure is not that clear. Yet I enjoy reading it very much.

5-0 out of 5 stars Puts self hypnosis within reach of nearly anyone.
It gives inductions, fundamentals and also does a nice job of leading the lay person into some very advanced hypnotic techniques. I'd never done self hypnosis before.After only a couple of chapters I tried a nonsensical test...while in a self induced trance state I managed to make one hand ice cold and the other burning hot.It's a fantastic primer for studying Bandler and Grinders' work in NLP as well; it brings self hypnosis home.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most comprehensive books on self-hypnosis
This is one of the most comprehensive books on self-hypnosis - it covers many of the most-common areas of application: helping you to lose weight, quit smoking, reduce pain, etc.

Structure of hypnosis is very simple - you get into a state of hypnosis, work on your outecome and return to normal conscious awareness.Many hypnosis books provide induction scripts to help people get into a state of hypnosis, and of course you can use them - but hypnosis is not a mechanical process.Success with self-hypnosis comes from having fun with your subjective experience and what you read in books may give you ideas how to go about it, but ultimately self-hypnosis is a very intimate experience that you'll end up doing your own way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Self-Hypnosis
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist - this book is the first one on the list of books I recommend to anyone interested in self-hypnosis. I consider it one of the best books on self-hypnosis. It is very well written and it covers vast range of topics whether you desire to lose weight, stop smoking, increase self-confidence, manage pain, reduce stress or just about anything else.

If you happen to be one of those who find this book too challenging or advanced and are looking just for some scripts you can use, you may also check out Instant Self-Hypnosis: How To Hypnotize Yourself with Eyes Open.

4-0 out of 5 stars Deep Sleep
I really like this cd. I listen every night and I am off sleeping drugs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Closest I've found to an in-office hypnotherapy session.
Years ago -- when I was in middle school (I'm 28 now) -- the sleep issues that seem to plague my family in a hereditary fashion caught up with me. Too young to begin taking Rx pills for sleep and desperate for some way to spend more time in the REM stage of sleep, my mother found a hypnotherapist who taught me various techniques I could use on my own, in addition to taking me through several guided sessions. I was a pretty skeptical kid, but they worked surprisingly well.

This year I decided to go back to trying this method of regulating my sleeping patterns, but I wasn't necessarily interested in starting live sessions again. I tried several audio options and found them all useful but not ideal. I found numerous recordings in which the voice of the speaker was too sharp and rousing, or the volume changed at some point and pulled me out of that relaxed, receptive state with an unpleasant start, or the amount of time spent on the guided imagery wasn't sufficient and felt rushed, so I was unable to relax as quickly as the speaker seemed to assume that I was, leading to a lot of replaying or solo relaxation exercises before starting the audio at all.

This is the first series of sessions that had everything that I was looking for. Dr. Gurgevich's voice is...well, unusual...and it takes a little bit of getting used to, but I think that it's actually very well-suited to achieving what he's setting out to achieve -- he has great control over his intonation and I've never once been startled out of that trance-like state by a pop of consonants or increase in volume or pitch (these things don't sound like a big deal, but they really can be!). The repetition of phrases and ideas allows for time to really internalize what he's talking about, so I never feel rushed. I have yet to make it all the way through the first hour-long segment.

Which brings me to my one complaint thus far: I really wish that the audio mp3 was divided more appropriately than into two hour-long segments. There are actually five sessions spread across the two segments, and they can be listened to sequentially, which is nice...but the lack of different tracks makes it VERY difficult to locate a specific session. Last night I was curious about some of the others I haven't heard, but trying to locate them -- especially on my iphone, which is where I have the audio loaded to listen to in bed -- is virtually impossible. I'll have to sit down and figure out the timestamps for each of the two tracks that mark the start of new sessions.

4-0 out of 5 stars Going to that place
If you are unable to settle a restless mind and cannot seem to find and inner peace that quiets all those nighttime doubts getting to a zen]trance]REM]SLUMBER is very much a reality with a technique like self hypnosis. This guide will put through 5 different phases to self induced slumber.If pharmaceuticals and other home remedies aren't letting you settle then listening to the techniques here should at least provide you with a few moments of quiet thought.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Audio CD has Improved My Life
I tend to get "stressed out" and unable to sleep, and when I do sleep, I often fall into a fitful sleep, awakening frequently and not feeling rested in the morning.The first night I used this audio CD I feel asleep quickly, slept well and felt rested the next day.I have now used it for four nights, with the same results!

Some things I like about the CD:

1.After listening to each session/track, the CD stops playing.I like this, because if you're asleep, you don't want it to keep going!I have never had to listen to more than two tracks to fall asleep.
2.I think Dr. Gurgevich knows what he's doing.He explains things in an easy to understand way, but doesn't speak down to you.You can tell the CD was well thought out, planned and delivered.
3.It is helping me to get a better night's sleep!
4.I like the fact that it is Dr. Gurgevich's voice on the CD.You feel like you are being instructed by a knowledgeable practitioner, rather than an actor or actress.

I can't think of anything I don't like about the CD. If you have difficulty sleeping, I would recommend you try this CD.It's like magic!I have just purchased Dr. Gurgevich's weight loss CD.I will post my review after giving it a try.

4-0 out of 5 stars this program does help
I have a number of sleep CDs, and they basically fall into two categories: 1. the ones that help, and 2. The ones that don't do anything, or even keep me awake.This CD thankfully belongs to the former. It is divided into several sections which Dr. Gurgawich names at the beginning, but I've never heard more than the first two or three before I fall asleep. This is good, of course, but I'd like to sit down with the CD to listen and take notes, so I can see how to use the rest of the program.

I do better with CDs that have guided imagery than those with only music. My problem is that I think too much, and I just can't get my brain to turn off. So, even when I am terribly sleepy, the silence allows my mind to fall into a wakefulness. Having some words to focus on really helps this. (I must admit that even boring audio books often help; though reading before bed is too stimulating).

During the first part of the CD, while the doctor is introducing the program and it's various parts, I do some "progressive relaxation" exercises, which help relax my muscles and prepare me to focus on the words. What he calls "self hypnosis" is different from what people may normally associate with this term. He says that "all hypnosis is self hypnosis", and also that it is similar to the times when we go into a "trance" like daydreaming or disconnecting from the world at hand. He teaches you a trick to help you focus early on in the CD, where you put your thumb and finger together, breathe deeply and hold it for the count of five. This creates a conditioned response (my words) which you can use anytime you are trying to sleep--like being away from home, presumably when you don't have the CD with you.

So, if you are the kind of person who can't shut your mind off at night and go to sleep, or need some calming words to focus on rather than music, I think you'd probably get some relief using this program. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hypnosis weight loss motivation
This is a wonderful product.I had never done hypnosis before this and thought I would give it a try. To my delight, it really works! It has changed my way of thinking. I use it every night just as I am going to bed and I am so relaxed and sleep very well after the deep relaxation from the hypnosis. It is more than about weight loss.It helps to change your way of thinking to a more healthy way of eating and motivates you to change your life in positive ways.It is more about a lifestyle change than just losing weight.I would highly recommend this to anyone. It will change your life.

5-0 out of 5 stars NO MORE JUNK FOOD CRAVINGS!!!
I used to be a sucker for pizza and hamburgers. And my body looked it.I am very small (4'9"...about the size of an 11 yr old child),plus I am small-boned. After quitting adult ballet classes because I moved too far away, my weight ballooned from 87 lbs to 120 lbs. Obese for my body size. I went from a Size 0 to a Size 8 (remember...I'm very short and small boned). And I had fat hanging all over me. My waist went from 20" to 29".My family doctor said "Lose weight". I tried dieting by following instructions in books. No discipline for that.So I decided to try hypnosis.I downloaded this guided hypnosis CD onto my iTunes, then uploaded it onto my little iPod Shuffle which is small enough to take to bed with me, because I can clip it ontomy night clothes. I plug my ears with my little noise cancelling headphones, plug my headphones into my little iPod Shuffle, turn it on, then fall asleep to Trevor's voice on this CD. After a couple of days, I noticed I wanted something light for breakfast, instead of bacon, eggs and toast or abig muffin and coffee. I wanted a small bowl of oatmeal, of all things....haven't had oatmeal in a long time. I also stopped drinking coffee and purchased Rooibos red tea, which is naturally sweet tasting. Started to eat more salad-based meals. Started shopping for fresh fruit (cantaloupe, kiwi, watermelon, pineapple, pears, blueberries, strawberries. Started eating less red meat (although I do love a nice steak). I know the hypnosis is working, because in addition to choosing low cal, wholesome fresh foods when I shop for groceries, I'm losing weight.It's been 2 months now and I've lost about 8 lbs, without exercising much...3-4 times a week, I'll take a walk around my neighborhood (average a mile or so).I've added Lisa Guyman's CD to my night time iPod Shuffle program. So now, while I'm asleep, I'm being hypnotized to lose weight and being reprogrammed to balance my chakras and develop my Reiki energy and am healing myself...all this while I'm sleeping.I feel much better about myself and feel much more serene. And I've gotten over my chronic insomnia.Self-hypnosis is the way to go...it costs hardly anything, compared to other forms of therapy.Highly recommend Trevor's CD. I like his voice. Pair it with Lisa Guyman's CD. You've got nothing to lose except weight and bad habits.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic results!
This hypnosis is phenomenal. I listen to it as I lay down to sleep and wake up early to exercise and eat less all day. Prior to this I would always hit the snooze through my dedicated work out time and eat crap all day. I'm already seeing results! I would DEFINITELY recommend this audio cd!

4-0 out of 5 stars I think it is working...
You are supposed to listen to the cd for 21 days in a row.I haven't hit my 21 days yet, but I have noticed a decrease in my emotional eating, like when I am bored or have a craving for chocolate.So it has definitely helped there.I will continue listening to it through January at least as I really want/need to get control of my eating habits.

Overall, I would recommend this CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Working for me!
I am impressed with this CD, and it is working for me.I think you sometimes click with a voice, the music, etc, and this has been a good CD for me.I do sometimes move it further into the relaxation phase (on my IPOD) since I use it at night and relax quickly.I've tried several such tapes/CDs over the years, and this one is the best. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Does what it is meant to do, and well.
Self-hypnosis is such a subjective experience that it is very difficult to give an objective rating to something like this. All I can say is that in my experience, these tapes have worked fabulously. The first CD, which discusses anxiety and our bodies' sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system responses, is very interesting and I found quite relaxing just on its own.

The second CD contains four different hypnosis exercises for slightly different situations (a general daily hypnosis, a "rescue remedy" for acute anxiety, a "hypnotic rehearsal" for lessening anxiety of specific situations, and "worry control"). While I was initially disappointed there were only four hypnosis sessions, I found that not only are these four sufficient, but I enjoy listening to them over and over. I'm not sure if it is Dr. Gurgevich's voice, his speed of talking, or the lack of distracting music, but I find these sessions profoundly relaxing. I never completely zone out, but I definitely become very calm and have a tangible feeling of relaxation within the first minute of listening that helps me work through my anxiety. No, there are no groundbreaking or revolutionary techniques here, but there is also no such thing as a CD that can cure anxiety instantly after one listen. It does its humble task of guiding the listener into a relaxed, un-anxious and reflective state, very well. For someone who has always found it impossibly boring and difficult to stay still and quiet for a 20 minute relaxation session, I actually find myself routinely listening to the longest hypnosis session (about 30 minutes) and wishing it were longer. To me, that is about as successful as I could hope a hypnosis/relaxation CD to be.

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved this cd
This was an excellent cd for those suffering from anxiety and seeking relief.You will benefit from listening to this cd.It will relieve anxiety and bring you some peace.I would highly recommend for those who are anxious and want some help.I experienced excellent results.Worth every penny.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works Wonderfully
Listening to this CD has changed my life. I'm sleeping well, and am able to work again. Basically, I've suffered from anxiety for years, with the physical symptoms of aching joints, headaches, and upset stomach that goes with it. I paid a TON to therapists, took over-the-counter sleep aids, and suffered daily anyway... recently extra pressure from work caused my anxiety so soar off the charts and I felt completely paralyzed.

Nine days ago I went to a store, and this CD Package LEAPT off the shelf at me. I bought it, listened that night, and my life has changed! The first CD describes the Doctor's own experience with anxiety, and then explains in easy-to-understand terms what anxiety is, the symptoms and several causes, and then does a beautiful job explaining medical hypnosis, debunking the myths about it, and explaining the conscious and subconscious minds.

The second CD are the "trances" (clinical term), which is where the Doctor induces a hypnotic trance and then provides the relaxing suggestions. You can listen to these awake or asleep (but not driving a car or operating machinery). I really like that each trance has a different focus and length.

I've listened to the first "daily use" trance each night since purchasing. The FIRST DAY I felt amazingly better--so much less anxious. Since then I can safely say I've felt NONE of my previous anxiety levels. It's really miraculous. I've been able to work, and do the things I was avoiding. And if I feel anxiety coming, I practice the anchoring technique he talks about in the 2nd trance.

The CDs come with a booklet of helpful exercises. I haven't tried them yet, and don't really need to! I've already recommended this CD to several coworkers who suffer too. Give it a try it's really amazing!

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend
I am a psychiatrist and I have recommended this CD to several patients.They all have reported decreased or resolved worry, anxiety, or panic attacks.There are many such CD's on the market but I do like Dr Gurgevich's calm and soothing voice. I have purchased other CD's by him and they are equally good. I am a firm believer that as adults we do not get enough positive information going into our brain and it is up to us to take charge of that task.In my practice and from personal use, I have seen the healing power of subliminal messages directed to the subconscious mind - they really do work.

5-0 out of 5 stars "We were only born with two fears--falling and loud noises.All other fears are learned"--Steven Gurgevich
I have several CDs on anxiety and this one, so far, is my favorite.It is 2 CDs which cover the education side (what is anxiety? what are the categories of anxiety disorders? what causes anxiety? what types of treatments are out there?) and the treatment side (medical hypnosis).It is the first time I heard the word "emetophobia' (fear of vomiting) which is the cause of my anxiety in the first place (I had no idea there was a name for it and that others suffered from it) so, on a personal level, I am very grateful for this CD set.

Disc 1 covers the education side.Gurgevich explains the "fight or flight" response which can cause panic attacks and that the antidote to anxiety is relaxation.With medical hypnosis, you use your mind to alter learned and inherent patterns of anxiety and develop the understanding of the roots of anxiety to keep you in control.He also explains that conquering anxiety can also require a life style change.Poor diet, negative thoughts and self talk, constantly watching and reading gloom and doom in the news, lack of exercise, and stress can create or exacerbate anxiety disorders.Finally, Gurgevich dispels the myths and misconceptions of medical hypnosis.The hypnotic trance used to relax your body, mind, and spirit is like a daydream, not like the hypnotist stage shows where people act like a chicken for entertainment.I find this CD effective for relaxation, too.Sometimes just hearing a helpful voice is good therapy, especially when you are going through anxious moments alone.

Disc 2 covers the hypnosis sessions.After a brief introduction, he guides you through a 28-minute session that can be used for general day-to-day use.He teaches you to breathe through your "tummy" which is a technique used in other relaxation CDs.He is an effective guide in these exercises even though his voice sounds like it could make a good cartoon character.Other hypnosis sessions have you pressing your finger and thumb together and then releasing to give you the feeling of releasing tension and stress.It is difficult to remember some of the later sessions specifically as they do put you in a daydream state.I don't fall asleep to it but he explains many people do but that, their subconscious minds can still pick up the signals.I've always been a bit skeptical about the subconscious mind stuff, but what do I know.One thing I do know is that this CD is an effective way to relax and get through bouts of anxiety in a safe, non-pharmaceutical manner. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars good book
I like this book. you can use it with the CD in the back.I believe it works for me.I go into the hypnosis pretty easy and I've noticed a difference afterwards. I don't seem so interersted in eating all the time. I like the information and explanations.

1-0 out of 5 stars no easy answer
In the past I have used hypnosis many time successfully but the voice on this recording is just annoying.

1-0 out of 5 stars New Age Gobbledygook
I wish there was a negative stars rating, but since there isn't, I rate this book 1 star.I'm amazed that seemingly learned, educated people can believe in such new age nonsense.While I believe that hypnosis is a viable science, these authors lost all credibility with me when they actually addressed the concerns people had about "past lives" being at the core of their overeating.The authors stated they were only concerned with this "present life" but inferred there was validity in the belief of reincarnation.I could not read past this point and am glad I decided to borrow it from my local library before investing hard earned money into purchasing it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This book is well written and has some very valuable suggestions and perspectives on the tricky subject of weight control.It is not a quick fix and really, the word diet in the title is not quite right but it is still likely to make more of a difference than a hundred diet manuals - highly recommended

1-0 out of 5 stars Pretty silly
I recently went for some hypnotism sessions and they seemed to do a little bit of good, so I thought I'd purchase this to reinforce the sessions and help me fall asleep at night (always went "under" at the sessions). I found the book to be totally worthless and the CD not much better. After each "session" on the CD, they play some music that is extra loud and jarring, so if you happened to go into "trance," it wakes you up. A lot of the "suggestions" are pretty ridiculous, too (tempted to eat a treat you shouldn't have? Imagine it has big, gross hair in it...or bug parts!) ... Read more

Product Description
Reissued by Brunner/Mazel Publishers, this universally acclaimed volume ? based on both experimental studies and clinical practice ? provides a remarkably well?rounded examination of the application of hypnosis to pain relief. Written by a psychologist and a psychiatrist noted for their expertise as both practitioners and researchers, the book illustrates how hypnosis can significantly alleviate the pain of childbirth, medical or dental surgery, burns or other accidental injuries, cancer, and chronic syndromes. With over 600 references covering the field of modern research into the mechanisms of pain, the authors convey a thorough understanding of findings and limitations of available empirical studies. Yet the book remains exceptionally clear and non?technical and will appeal not only to professionals involved with pain reduction but to lay people as well. The Hilgards address a broad spectrum of topics relating to hypnosis and pain, ranging from an historical review to a consideration of future areas for investigation. They thoughtfully tackle the controversy still surrounding the nature of hypnosis ? is it an altered state of consciousness or a pattern of behaviour adopted by both subject and hypnotist? The concluding section presents the Hilgards' neo?dissociation theory of hypnosis as well as a highly useful technique for assessing susceptibility in clinical situations. Pain has been called the greatest unsolved problem in medicine. Hypnosis in the Relief of Pain, with its honest and complete appraisal of the role of hypnosis on pain reduction, will contribute significantly to the understanding and broader use of this noninvasive and natural healing phenomenon. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Empowering
This is one of three of Janet's CDs that I own. Getting older and going through periods of stress, I noticed that confusion and memory loss were becoming disturbing issues. I ordered this CD and have been very satisfied with the results. Janet has a soothing voice and her relaxation techniques, along with her memory/recall specifics have done wonders for my memory and recall. Any correspondence from her wishes you a: wonderful life enhancing and/or life changing experience! And this CD has been all of that. I just ordered three more CDs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Now seeing photographic memory flashes!
Don't let your brain run on "I can't remember that."Use this tape to create a new Operating System for your brain! As promised, this tape works! I'm already "seeing" that I'm beginning to have a photographic memory - without even trying.It also has helped in the quick recall of information I haven't used in a while!I'm so glad I bought it!

3-0 out of 5 stars Awake hypnosis
You are asked to remain awake or it will not work. Then she puts you to sleep. Hard to stay awake. The reader has a great voice and aspires to none of the breathy unintelligible nonsense one finds on discs of this ilk. I recommend it only if you are determined to work with it over a period of time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book to aid you on the road to self understanding
This is a wonderful tool to start the process of improving your quality of inner life.. highly recommended

5-0 out of 5 stars Thanks for the miracle in my life
All my life I had a stammer and over the years I learned how to control it most of the time. Now pursuing a career as a Garda (Irish Police Force) I want to always have control over it. Just before I enrolled for speech therapy sessions I came across this book. I got great help and with the techniques to programme the 'beat' into my mind, I now talk with a rhythm 'to the beat'. A very inspirational book. I now have power I never knew I had. Thanks.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a truly amazing book, highly recommended!
When I saw the cover of "Powerful Mind through Self-Hypnosis" I was immediately drawn to it. To put it simple, this book has changed every aspect of my being in a very positive way. At work, my friends keep telling me how great I look and at home I feel relaxed and happy all the time. I would never have thought that a book could have such a profound impact on my life and I thank the author from the heart.

Through using Cathal's simple and natural self-hypnotic techniques, I find self-hypnosis easy to use each day in all my activities. This book takes the mysticism out of hypnosis by getting you back to basic self-control, through breathing, suggestion, imagination, basically using the tools you already have but fail to use effectively. In other editions I've read on the same subject, authors have overcomplicated the simple process of hypnosis by adding to much 'magic' and not enough 'logic' to the equation. This is why it's perfect for the beginner as well as the professional. It makes proper use of the mind and body you have by helping you tap in to the power of the subconscious area of the mind, to put it simply.

The structure and layout of the book is also very useful for those who want to use it as a psychological guide, kind of an 'A to Z' of symptoms and how to help overcome them through self-transformation. For example, if you suffer from anxiety or depression, you can go straight to those areas and find solutions. For the professional, it's easy for them to get a basic understanding of everything to do with hypnosis and the mind, as well as incorporate the well written scripts provided for their own private therapy sessions.

O'Briain has also done very well to reinvigorate self-hypnosis as a pure and natural form of self-healing and I'm glad he took the initiative to show people that it's a phenomonen that has been around since the dawn of time, used for mind strengthening and not for mind control. It's as natural as breathing and O'Briain dedicates an entire chapter to the breath, which is central to his teachings and an integral part of the self-hypnotic process.

This book has the potential to change the minds of the masses. I hope it reaches a wide and varied audience because it's a book for everyone. My congratulations to the author on a wonderful book full of surprises and healing.

5-0 out of 5 stars A powerful read!
Cathal O'Briain's 'Powerful Mind through Self-Hypnosis' is the book I have been waiting for. Having bought many books on this subject I feel this is now my handbook for life. The language he uses makes it so easy to read, unlike other books of this genre. I've been putting into practice the simple breathing techniques, something I have never read about before, and I have found them very helpful with my every day life, increasing my confidence and helping me in social situations, as well as helping me to unwind at the end of the day. This book has something for everyone and is a must for anyone wanting a better quality of life. ... Read more
