Hypnosis and Counselling in the Treatment of Cancer and Other Chronic Illness
By David Frank, Bernard Mooney
This important work discusses the therapeutic properties of hypnosis in the treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Also includes a brief history of hypnosis and an invaluable series of case studies. This work examines the science and history and myths of hypnosis, as well as examples of successful integration of hypnosis into the cancer treatment program. It presents compelling arguments for offering hypnosis to cancer sufferers, and provides crucial insight into the body's healing abilities - an insight of immense importance to medical professionals and everyone interested in the treatment and approach to chronic diseases.
This book has all you need to boost the confidence you already have in the skills of the therapy you practice. The body and mind are remarkable, complex elements of our whole being. I am encouraged by the fact that the authors, through this work, are actually presenting us with vivid and crucial insight into the body's own healing powers and how we can best help people focus them for their own benefit. I find this a compelling book in every way and am pleased to recommend it to you. --David Slater, The Hypnotherapist
This is a very informative, interesting and very readable publication and should be on the bookshelves of anyone involved in treating those with chronic illness, those people who have a chronic illness or in fact anybody who is interested in protecting themselves from contracting such illness. --Mark Storey, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Positive Solution Training Development
