Course text books

Our recommended texts are chosen to be approachable but thorough, and we've aimed to balance getting the best information with the need for reasonable cost. There are Amazon links to make finding the books as easy for you as possible, and we have a small number of second hand books for sale. Please contact us for an up to date list.

You don't need to have read your books from cover to cover before you arrive at module one. But it is useful to dip in and out, and become familiar with what's in them.

 

Required reading

 

All students will receive a copy of Debbie Waller's book 'Their Worlds, Your Words', free of charge at module one.

  • If you are only doing the Foundation level, the above plus one book from section A will be all you need.
  • If you are doing Practitioner level, look at sections A and B.
  • Section C is to help you build your library as you develop special interests, decide to read further as a student, or want books to use as part of your professional development when in practice

This list is updated from time to time as new books arrive on the market, last updated March 2018.

  

Section A. Therapy scripts

We'd recommend all our students to have the Roger Allen book, plus the Lynda Hudson one if your budget allows.

 

Section B. Building your skills

We'd recommend all our students acquire one of these books, both if your budget allows.

  • Tracy Farr. (2018) A Creative Guide to Therapeutic Metaphor  Ann Jaloba Publishing.
    How to write inspired metaphor; a fun interactive guide for hypnotherapists. Good for either Foundation or Practitioner level students.

  • Anthology (2014)  The Hypnotherapy Handbook Helping Handbooks, Yorks.
    A variety of chapters by different authors (including our own Debbie Waller) on how to deal with many common issues you'll meet as a hypnotherapist along with marketing and self-care advice. Most relevant for Practitioner level students.
     

 

Section C. Building your library

If you want to build your library further we suggest you invest in one or two of these. However, it's a good idea to wait till you've covered the relevant areas of your training before deciding which ones you want. Some are quite specialist and will be of no use unless you decide to work in that area.
The tutor's copies will be available to view during our course, giving you a chance to browse through them before you decide which ones you wish to add to your own collection. We've also included brief notes to help you choose the titles of most interest to you.
