Internationally known therapist and author Bill O'Hanlon brings readers another fascinating insight into mental health with this simple guide to solution-oriented hypnosis. O'Hanlon presents the basics of this results-driven approach to hypnosis, drawing on his training with renowned psychiatrist Milton H. Erickson. This condensed guide provides therapists with the essential tools they need to effectively use solution-oriented hypnosis with their clients.

Hypnosis can teach us many things about how the human mind, perceptions, and emotions function. It can also show how to help people shift those perceptions, mental processes, and emotions to resolve problems. Recent discoveries in neuroscience have pointed to the amazing plasticity of the brain and the mutability of habits, lending new interest to these age-old techniques.

While hypnosis is an endless subject, it can also be distilled down into some clear and simple principles. This book is the result of Bill O'Hanlon's many years of teaching professionals how to compellingly invite their clients into trance and to help those clients reduce or eliminate the suffering that brought them to seek help. The third in the guidebook series, this is a brief, accessible, and fun guide to the essential points of a big therapeutic topic. Written with Bill O'Hanlon's signature wit and style, this book is essential reading for all fans of O'Hanlon and anyone interested in hypnosis.
