“Mary Lee LaBay has managed to do what few others have—write an authoritative work on hypnotherapy that is an enjoyable and easy read. As an instructor of hypnotherapy, I will be placing this work at the top of our recommended reading list.”

Hypnotherapy covers everything from subconscious behavioral motivators and self-empowerment to creating a comfortable therapeutic environment. Readers learn a variety of holistic techniques designed to improve interpersonal relationships, create rapid positive change, and conquer fear. It is a useful resource for clinical hypnotherapists, patients, and anyone who is curious about this noteworthy healing method.
