This book sets out in a concise, clear and logical sequence various hypnotic techniques for you to practise to help you regain control of the various symptoms of stress and anxiety; bringing about a lasting therapeutic change within yourself. You do not have to be suffering from these symptoms to benefit from the wisdom contained in this book. Read and practise the techniques described, and experience and observe the progressive change it makes to your life.
The purpose of this book is to provide a methodical approach to self-hypnosis techniques; to allow you to once again take control and manage the feelings and emotions you experience, by providing an eclectic approach to the symptoms of stress and anxiety, with the extensive use of self-hypnosis and meditative techniques as management tools. I have not attempted to discuss in detail any of the ideas and theories proposed in this book, nor any other controversial points that I may have inadvertently raised. The purpose of this revised edition has been simply to put the reader’s needs first and to introduce you, the reader, quickly to self-management techniques. In light of constructive feedback I have received by readers of this popular book, I have expanded a number of sections and deleted others.
It is hoped that, although it was not my prime objective, those therapists of various persuasions and different schools of thought will find Section Two of this book, ‘’Management Techniques for Stress and Anxiety’, an easy, useful and practical guide to offer their clients. The format adopted is such that the techniques covered in this book can easily be amended and modified, to suit the needs of the reader and the therapist’s particular, theoretical persuasion. Both will benefit, in my humble opinion, from the layout of this book.
Importantly, just reading the techniques described will serve no real practical purpose. You will need to put into practice what you have read to benefit fully from the experience of meditative self-hypnosis. Practice is an essential part of learning any skill and of how well you apply that skill under differing circumstances. Many of the techniques described are very simple and clear-cut and will become progressively easier to carry out with a daily, consistent routine that suits your needs.
