Learn How to Use Hypnosis, NLP and Guided Imagery with Thinking Therapeutically

Discover how you can use proven techniques in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, Psycho-Imagery and Dream Interpretation to help you with breaking through problems and gaining freedom in your life.

In Thinking Therapeutically #1 bestselling authors Tom Barber and Sandra Westland take you on a journey into the world of two experienced therapists as they recall their own enlightening journeys to becoming therapists.

Tom and Sandra then offer a number of verbatim accounts of their most memorable sessions, along with a personal processing of each session and, more importantly, a critical analysis of each other s work.

Therapists are often provided with a number of theories, approaches and techniques they are told will be therapeutic, but without any guidance as to whether they will help a particular client. This book provides an opportunity to see these ideas in action and gives some essential critique as to what did and what did not work in the sessions described. The authors offer us insight and guidance into the world of creativity which will open up to us when we engage with clients within their own paradigms.

Tom and Sandra bring their own personal touch to this book, never before seen with this degree of honesty and transparency. In sharing their work they provide both new and experienced therapists with unique insights that only the seasoned practitioner can possess.

This book deserves a place in the library of all therapists whether they are seasoned or newly emerging. – Fidelity – The Journal for the NCP.

It is one thing having strategies explained in a dry, clinical way but it is totally another to have the strategy theoretically explained and then, through the medium of the verbatim reporting of sessions, actually put to real use in such an open and compelling way. At times their clients almost become yours as you share each intense moment of the journey made. – David Slater BA, DHyp, MHA(RegHyp), MASC, DCS, MGSCT.
