Hypnosis – A Comprehensive Guide

by Tad James, MS, PhD with Lorraine Flores & Jack Schober

Research shows that many people react differently to different kinds of hypnotic induction – yet many hypnotherapists are confined to using only one technique. This book makes three radically different and significant types of hypnosis easy to use in daily hypnosis work, examining in detail the techniques of Erickson, Estabrooks and Elman. Exploring methods that employ Direct Authoritarian and Indirect Permissive approaches, Hypnosis progresses beyond these approaches to describe the inductions pioneered by Dave Elam: a technique that places responsibility for hypnosis on the client.

An invaluable resource for all trainers and therapists, Hypnosis is a comprehensive and lucid manual that incorporates:

  • Powerful inductions for producing deep – trance phenomena
  • Sections on the application of metaphor and hypnotic language patterns
  • Scripts for a variety of hypnotic inductions

“… this is the sort of book that makes a reviewer’s job worth doing. It is a gem. Well-written, well paced and packed with information. … a book that everyone with an interest in hypnosis will want to own. “

ANDY BRADBURY  – Honest Abe’s NLP Emporium


“This book is an excellent introductory text for students just beginning to study the art and science of hypnosis. For those already knowledgeable about hypnosis, there are many nuances that will enable you to increase the elegance of your work.”

David Shepherd, BSc, DES – Master Trainer of NLP, Director of Research and Training, The Performance Partnership, London, UK


“I love this book. Its content trains anyone mastering hypnosis skills to come from an inner position, which pulsates with unconditional positive expectations. It combines this attitude with clear practical steps and procedures that practitioners can use to guide clients in trance to hold their outcomes for themselves. Highly satisfying.”

Deborah Rose – Chartered Marketer
