Product description

Review

I have often described the remarkable Dr. Dabney Ewin as a treasure . Now in 101 Things I Wish I d Known When I Started Using Hypnosis , he has given the hypnosis world a treasure chest full of the gems and pearls he has polished in his 40 years of practicing medical hypnosis. Dr. Ewin describes hypnosis as an empathetic involvement with another and as we interact with our patients/clients we evolve in our tone of voice, choice of words, what we emphasize, and our timing. This cogent, concise resource is a gift of shared wisdom from an evolved Master to assist the next generations of clinicians in mastering the art of hypnosis. 101 Things helps the novice as well as the accomplished clinician learn what to say, when to say it and how to say it. Dr. Ewin often remarks that we are all created precious and this little gem certainly is precious. --Linda Thomson, PhD, APRN, ABMH<br /><br />The first thing that struck me about this book was the title 101 Things I Wish I d Known When I Started Using Hypnosis. As a seasoned practitioner and teacher of hypnotherapy I asked myself how needed is a snapshot of an experienced and respected practitioners innermost thoughts and feelings into his work with clients? The answer was desperately ! On further reading, his initial explanation of the idiosyncrasies of our definitions of what our clients need to be doing both excited me and called into mind the term Thank you! What a relief to see an author make what may be a commonsense differential statement between words such as stop and quit , which at first sight may not mean much when working with clients, until you realise that they may understand the power of language, but on many occasions do not resonate with its importance for them. This insightful exploration into the complexities of language continues into much sought after areas of knowledge that both practitioners and clients desire, including working with pain and many other common complaints. This is a short book, but do not let that mislead you of its importance. I am reminded of Yalom s Gift of Therapy, when I say that some short books are career definers. This is up there with the best of them in terms of succinct, wise, inspired insight, and I recommend it for any therapist who either needs to know more, or who needs some fire in their belly to reignite their love of therapy. --Tom Barber MA Course Director - Contemporary College of Therapeutic Studies<br /><br />A wonderful read for any psychotherapist or physician that be sure to improve your successes with a wide range of patients. --Arreed Barabasz, PhD, ABPP, Washington State University, Editor of the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, Author of Hypnotherapeutic Techniques, 2E

Format: Hardcover
'101 things I wish I'd known when I started using hypnosis' is a valuable pocket size resource that will appeal to anyone interested in hypnotherapy, whether they are a novice or a recognized expert.
The book is entertaining, informative and well written, and contains a wealth of knowledge, drawn from many years of experience.
In terms of the contents the author ably demonstrates restraint, concision and precision.
There are only 128 pages, but they all contain 'nuggets' - the sort of advice and wisdom that you usually only get word of mouth from a trusted mentor.
I found the 'words' section particularly useful as the author confronts the complexity of language head on. To paraphrase the author - what we say, how we say it, and what we omit all matter but so do intuition and feeling.

If you're a hypnotherapist or thinking of becoming one then this book is definitely worth purchasing. Full of wee gems that clearly come from long experience - this has already saved me much pain.

As a newly qualified hypnotherapist I have found this little book very informative. It covers many issues from Chronic Pain to Smoking Cessation and lots of suggestions of what to say and what not to say... and why!

Format: Hardcover
Whether you're a hypnotherapist or just interested in learning more about hypnosis this is one of the most easily digestible and usable books out there.

101 things is an enthusiastic collection of wisdom - which just happens to cover hypnosis - the wisdom contained within these pages is priceless - well worth the cover price 50 times over - especially when you take into account the price of a hypnosis course or seminar - or even the price of seeing a competent therapist...

The book is split into 5 main sections:
Words
Smoking Cessation
Pain
Techniques
Miscellaneous Pearls of Wisdom

And it's a wonderful read - it's as if you're having a conversation with the author - being able to relate to "why that is helpful" and "why you say something in a certain way".

One of the problems of such an easy style of communication is we may tend to overlook how useful it actually is...

Simple is complicated enough - and you don't need very long words to help someone get better...

One word can change someone's life - and certain sentences if acted upon - can have what will seem like a magical effect - just ask anyone who has "chosen" to stop smoking after seeing a hypnotherapist for one session...

Talking of stopping smoking - the 22nd thing in the book is turning the word impossible into a positive suggestion and is very eloquent and clever and brilliant...

This book also reminds me of Duncan McColl's Precision Therapy book because you don't need to "logically" understand a lot of the things in this book - you need the confidence to use the information and see what happens...

Hurtful vs helpful...

if you are a practising hypnotherapist I personally think this is a great little book of comfort, it reminds you of what you should be doing, what to consider and what to never do with handy little quotes or anecdotes on each page.

it's just an all round brilliant little book. You probably don't need it if you're a well established Hypnotherapist however, unless you feel you could gain some confidence by reading a bit more.

I loved it and read it within a couple of hours.

Excellent little book about hypnosis and therapy in general. Beats all the big encyclopaedias
of NLP nonsense by a mile. Filled with good practical advice and no pseudo theorising.

A terrific little book (and I mean little) for learners and practitioners of hypnosis/hypnotherapy.
Well written, concise and extremely practical. Not a 'how to' manual, this book does presume some basic working knowledge of hypnosis, but the knowledge gained here can be put to use straight away in your next session with a client.
At 126 half-sized pages, it's not exactly what you would call 'meaty' but I can certainly see myself referring back to this book many times in the future.
Highly recommended.
