I’ll start by answering the four questions I am asked most frequently:
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis involves either putting oneself into a trance in order or being put into a trance by someone else. In such a relaxed yet highly focused mental state people become more open to learning new skills and fresh ways of thinking.
Is Hypnosis Weird and Dangerous?
Hypnosis is an ancient method of healing, managing pain and enhancing performance, with a history going back to ancient Egypt. There is nothing strange or sinister about what is, in fact, a perfectly natural state of mind we all experiences several times each day.
How Easy is Self-Hypnosis?
The short answer is extremely easy. We enter a hypnotic state easily and naturally whenever we become fully focused on what is relevant and important to you in that moment. It is common for people deeply absorbed in some pursuit, for example, to ‘zone out’ as they update their mind with the fresh information. In this trance state, which psychologists term ‘flow’ they become ‘lost’ in a world of their own with no awareness of time passing. You go into a hypnotic state when daydreaming, absorbed in an exciting movie or commuting by car along a familiar route, while meditating, praying or even exercising. Jogging has been described as ‘meditation on the move.’
Is Hypnosis a Therapy?
Hypnosis is an aid to bringing about desired new ways of feeling and behaving rather than a treatment in itself. By going into a trance, either through self-hypnosis or by being guided into one by a qualified hypnotherapist, you become more responsive and open to the form of change being proposed.
Hypnosis used in conjunction with other forms of therapy positively enhances the effectiveness of those therapies and reduce the number of sessions clients require for treatment. For example to between 1 and 3 from an average of 6 for what is termed ‘brief therapy’; between 18 and 20 for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy; 20 and 30 for traditional counselling and between 45 and 300 for psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

Introduction to Conversational Hypnosis
This introduction to conversational hypnosis differs in several important ways from others on this subject that, in my view, overcomplicate the subject and so make it far harder to master. With more than twenty years practical experience with conversational hypnosis, I can talk using all the impressive hypnotic language, but anyone who has heard a conversational hypnotist speak using all the Ericksonian hypnotic language patterns will know that it doesn’t sound very conversational! Rather it sounds as if you are doing hypnosis or at least ‘talking funny’.

Advanced Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Scripts
‘Advanced Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Scripts’ contains over 100 hypnotherapy scripts based on over 20 years of experience Dan Jones has as one of the UK’s leading hypnotherapists and hypnotherapy trainers.
There are scripts to help people:
- – Stop smoking
- – Lose weight
- – Lift depression
- – Calm anxiety
- – Sooth pain
- – Increase performance enhancement
- – Tackle insomnia
- – and much more…
This isn’t just another hypnosis scripts book, Dan hopes that readers will use these scripts as a starting point, rather than just reciting scripts verbatim. This book shares ideas and suggestions on how to run hypnotherapy sessions from gathering information to carrying out the hypnotic work, ending a session and setting tasks. It also introduces Ericksonian hypnotic language patterns and script structure so that the reader can have a deeper understanding of what is being done in the scripts and why they are written the way they are.
This all round package makes this book a valuable resource for anyone wanting to learn more about Ericksonian hypnosis. Hypnotherapists in training can also read and analyse the hypnotherapy scripts and study the language, structure and multi-level communication used to further their skill and knowledge. The ultimate goal is to help hypnotherapists move beyond scripts to regularly performing script-free hypnotherapy sessions that occur in response to the client in front of the therapist. This hypnotherapy scripts book can help the hypnotherapist develop ideas from the scripts that can come out spontaneously once mastered.
