READ THE NEW BOOK BY JOS VAN BOXTEL ABOUT STEPHEN BROOKS INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO HYPNOTHERAPY
We are proud to announce the publishing of our book “Stephen Brooks and the Art of Compassionate Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Vol 1 – Phobias” in July 2020. The book is written in English and is for sale online at amazon.co.uk, amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com
ABOUT THE BOOK
This book describes in detail a unique demonstration session by renowned Ericksonian hypnotherapist and trainer Stephen Brooks. The client suffers from an extreme spider phobia, and Brooks helps her overcome her fear in one session. The book describes how he uses her behaviour, thinking style and beliefs to cure her phobia through hypnotic desensitization and double dissociation.
Stephen Brooks is known for his compassionate style and complex hypnotic language, modelled after legendary hypnotherapist Milton Erickson. When he communicates with a client, it seems like he is holding a normal conversation, but with close observation, you will discern a sophisticated network of indirect suggestions, implications, links and metaphors. Pre-talk, trance induction and therapeutic intervention flow seamlessly into one another and lead to an automatic and unconscious change process
The first half of the book provides an overview of the hypnotic techniques and language patterns that Brooks uses. The second half is a verbatim report of the session, which describes step by step what is happening, verbally and non-verbally, and what choices Brooks makes. Gradually, the client goes deeper into a trance, transforms her deep-seated fear and, to her own surprise, begins to see spiders as friends.
“Wow, if it’s possible to condense the evolution of psychotherapy over this century and Milton H. Erickson’s legacy with clarity, simplicity and compassion, Stephen Brooks and The Art of Compassionate Ericksonian Hypnotherapy surely sets the highest standard.” Dr. Ernest Rossi – author with Milton H. Erickson of the Collected Papers of Milton H. Erickson.
Jos van Boxtel studied the hypnotherapeutic style of Stephen Brooks in detail and works with him as a trainer and author. This book is the first in a series of publications about his work.
