This is a comprehensive evidence-based clinical manual for practitioners ofcognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy. Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy is increasingly becoming the dominant approach to clinicalhypnosis. At a theoretical level, it adopts a research-based cognitive-behavioural model ofhypnosis. At a practical level, it closely integrates traditional hypnotherapy andcognitive-behavioural therapy techniques. This is the first major treatment manual to describe a fully integrated cognitive-behavioural approach to hypnotherapy, based on current evidence and best practice in the fields of hypnotism and CBT. It is the product of years of work by the author, a cognitive-behavioural therapist and specialist in clinical hypnosis, with overfifteen years' experience in the therapy field. This book should be essential reading for anyoneinterested in modern evidence-based approaches to clinical hypnosis. It's also an importantresource for cognitive-behavioural therapists interested in the psychology of suggestion and the useof mental imagery techniques.

Industry Reviews

'Robertson's approach is well structured but flexible and he demonstrates a firm grasp of his subject matter, which is considerable in scope. In particular, I believe he will convince readers who are already cognitive-behavioural therapists that learning how to include hypnosis in their repertoire of skills will pay them and their clients significant dividends. And those hypnotherapists wishing to incorporate CBT into their practice will be amply rewarded. With The Practice of Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy the author has demonstrated the exacting standards by which all books on therapeutic hypnosis should be judged. I commend it to the reader.'- Dr Michael Heap, author (with H. B. Gibson) of Hypnosis in Therapy, and (with K. K. Aravind) of Hartland's Medical and Dental Hypnosis'Donald Robertson goes back to basics and describes the development of hypnosis and cognitive-behavioural therapy. This book provides an excellent introduction to the theory, research and practice of cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy.'- Professor Stephen Palmer, Founder Director of the Centre for Stress Management, London
