I wanted to buy Hypnotherapy edited by Michael Heap when I noticed that there was a kindle edition and I downloaded the book. To my surprise I received a book called Hypnotherapy and anxiety.This is really misleading and not an accepted Practice. I read the book which is only a few pages. The book is a narrative account on the historical and academic discussion on CBT and Hypnotherapy and discussion on various types of anxiety disorders .Reader will be disappointed if he/she looking for Hypnotherapy scripts for induction, deepener, ego-booster and details of Hypnotherapy scripts specific to anxiety disorders. Of course the author has provided a long list of references. This book is for the academics and NOT for the use of Hypnotherapy. Do not waste your money on this one.

Format: Paperback
The layout of the book is that chapter one introduces the concept of hypnosis including brief theories of this phenomenon. Chapter two gives an overview of the application of hypnosis in therapy including the evidence base. The rest of the book allocates a chapter each to key mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression and eating disorders. Finally, there are two chapters one looking at hypnotherapy with children and the other, hypnotherapy in dentistry.

Each chapter starts with an introductory section, other treatment modalities before focusing on the role of hypnotherapy approaches/applications, specific approaches and future directions. Some chapters cover theoretical views and give practical tips. However there are no hypnotherapy scripts in this book.

This book is well written with excellent up to date evidence base research. However, background knowledge of hypnotherapy and other psychological therapies such as CBT and behavioural therapy would be important in understanding some of the treatments discussed. As a practitioner with limited experience in hypnotherapy some treatment suggestions are unfamiliar to me but thankfully the book has plenty of references for the reader to look up. This book is worth buying and would be useful for students as well as qualified hypnotherapy practitioners looking for up to date evidence base with comprehensive reference sections.
