Many health care professionals and complementary therapists use hypnotherapy as part of their package of care. Integrative Hypnotherapy provides fully evidence-based instruction on how to integrate the theory and practice of hypnotherapy into a range of clinical settings. It presents a combined approach of using hypnotherapy alongside other therapies, and is authored by a multidisciplinary team (nurses, psychologists, hypnotherapists and CAM therapists) who use hypnotherapy in their practice and is edited by well-known and popular educators in the field. The book is divided into two sections: key concepts and approaches in practice. The second section covers the application of hypnotherapy to specific situations/problems, eg managing pain, smoking cessation, gastro-intestinal disorders, life-threatening illness, anxiety, and weight management. Students and practitioners will be taken on a journey of examination, critical review and debate prior to reaching recommendations for best practice.

• Provides research evidence to support and develop practice
