My name is Jo Ana Starr. I have been the Director of the New England Institute of Hypnotherapy since 1999; I am a veteran social researcher; a popular Speaker on the topics of Hypnotherapy, Self Hypnosis and the Mind-Body connection; and the author of 14 books and e-books that are designed to help readers improve their lives and achieve their personal goals.
Even though I don't know you and may never meet you face-to-face, I believe in the almost infinite power of your mind. You are likely a believer in and a seeker of happiness and fulfillment. You are willing to search until you find the best methods to help you achieve these goals. Good news - you're on the right path!
In my earlier years of researching mind-body techniques, I tried almost every method to gain happiness, focus, and peace. I finally found Hypnosis and was amazed at how easy Self Hypnosis made the process. It's simple; it's pleasant, and it works. In my books, I share with you how to train your brain to accomplish your goals, and provide the tools and information you need to do just that. Helping you to access your inner genius is my goal in writing these books, and one that I take very seriously.
Now, a bit of background information about me. I have worked in the field of Clinical Hypnotherapy since 1987, training with the esteemed Dr. A. Krasner of the American Institute of Hypnotherapy and working with clients and groups thereafter. In 1999, I founded the New England Institute of Hypnotherapy as a professional Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Certification training program that has successfully trained over 5200 Clinical Hypnotherapists internationally.
My academic background is in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Communication, Psychology, and Education. Because of my educational background and professional experience, Based on my years of experience with clients and students, I feel qualified to help you to train your brain to move you toward your goals. I genuinely delight in writing books that can help readers to create a more fulfilling life. I am happy and grateful to be able to share what I have learned with you.
If you are new to Self Hypnosis and you aren't sure which book to read first, I suggest that you start with Quantum Self Hypnosis or one of the shorter Quantum Self Hypnosis specific application books. Depending on whether you are interested in mastering one application or are wanting a great overview with lots of hypnosis scripts, one of these choices will be perfect for you. Quantum Hypnosis Scripts, and Eyes Open Self Hypnosis are also great books, and offer valuable information and resources for those who are interested in improving their lives through the use of Self Hypnosis.
Thanks for reading my books, and please always feel free to contact me with any questions you have about the books or the NEIH training programs.

It's a New Year, so I figured that I'd check out yet another way to stop smoking. I wasn't overly optimistic, given the last 6 New Year's resolutions, but I still decided to read this book. I heard that Hypnosis was good for smoking cessation.
The book is fairly short-42 pages and it's got a professional Hypnosis script and a choice of hypnosis inductions(the part that gets you into hypnosis). The author also included complete instructions on how to use the included material and how to record the sessions. It all makes sense to me and I think I'm going to go for it.
After reading the book, I think that my odds at beating this have really improved.

Another excellent book by Dr. Starr. I can't wait to see if this works for the long run as I have tried quitting for so long and never could. After trying this at home over the weekend, I have less inclination to smoke. Easy to read and understand, great job again Dr. Starr!

I just read the Weight Loss version of this book, which I loved and really feel will help me. The other challenge I want to deal with this year is to stop smoking, so this book was a natural. For less than $3., there are 3 scripts, recording instructions and general instructions, so it's a good value in my opinion.
I think my plan will be to stop smoking first, and then to tackle the weight loss thing. I am excited to get started!
