This is a very accessible but substantive book on integrating cognitive therapy and hypnotherapy. Dr Assen Alladin is a clinical psychologist and leading researcher in the field of clinical hypnosis (I highly recommend his handbook on using Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Depression).
This is a long way from pop psychology, NLP stuff. It's a proper therapy book that a serious clinician can use. However it is written in an entirely accessible way and many lay hypnotherapists would find it very helpful.
Alladin covers specific topics of PTSD, Somatization disorder, depression, insomnia, migraines, sexual disorders and skin disorders. His approach is evidence-based and not speculative. Base your treatment approaches on Alladin's models and you are off to a good solid start. He includes treatment plans and scripts. His many clear examples of integrating cognitive therapy and hypnotherapy inspire natural replication.
This is one of those trusted resources you want to have on your shelf.

Ignore the previous review by someone who doesn't like therapy terminology, that's irrelevant and unfair. Alladin is an expert in his field and has conducted a very important treatment outcome study on cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy for depression, showing it's as effective as standard cognitive therapy and superior on some measures.

This book provides summaries of evidence-based cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy treatments for different common problems, designed so that they can be empirically tested in a similar manner.

It also contains a good discussion of the issues involved in integrating cognitive therapy with hypnotherapy, etc.

For anyone who is interested in evidence-based approaches to hypnotherapy or cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy, this is an absolute must-read, and it should really be on the bookshelf of every practising hypnotherapist.

This is a pretty cool book. The use of CBT and hypnosis is a technique I employ in my practice and find it the most effective way to help my clients achieve change.
Aladin writes very well and the book is in no way pompous, it doesn't beat about the bush or use fluff to pad out the book, if anything, I would have liked the book to have been thicker.
If you are a therapist working with emotional disorders, this is a worthy addition to your library.

Very informative. Evidenced based approach to psychological and psychosomatic conditions.

This is one of the most incomprehensible books I have ever read. In my mind it is so crammed full of nothing. It's not the sort of book I like and I am sure that while it will appeal to a tiny section of the public it is not for the fainthearted. It may be clinically correct but interesting NO! It's information value is spoilt by its repetition of clinical jargon to the detriment of flow and interesting information.

I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I would much prefer a book that used simpler terms, I do understand all that clinical stuff but is there any need for it?
