with hypnosis is an outgrowth of my lifelong interest in philosophy and
in the power of the mind to affect and shape reality. The
cross-fertilization of philosophy and hypnosis, particularly in the
relationship between philosophical perspectivism and hypnotic
reframing, is of ongoing interest to me both in terms of my practice
and in my writing. For ongoing work in this and related areas please

perspective on hypnotherapy is that it is a method to help balance the
analytical and self-conscious processes of the conscious
mind with the subjective and conditioned processes of the subconscious
mind. Conflicts and blockages can develop within and between both
mental spheres, and the ultimate goal is to achieve a graceful harmony
between them. This is as true for batting slumps and golfing woes as it
is for overeating, anxiety, etc.
